I cannot believe January is almost gone. I was just about to say, where has 2015 gone already? Did you enjoy the holidays? We did and I am so glad we are eating a little bit healthier! I think I overdid it with all of the delicious baked goodies and treats.

I will have to say, we have been enjoying our soups lately. They always seem lighter and are incredible easy to make. Just the other day I really had a taste for cajun food and I didn’t know exactly what I wanted. I thought a delicious cajun-style soup would be great on a day where it was chilly. Would have been delicious today, as well – snowing as I am writing this.

I will have to warn you, this soup is a little spicy. If you aren’t a fan of spice, you can always omit the cayenne and crushed red pepper flakes. If you would rather stick to soups that are not spicy at all, I would recommend the slow cooker lentil soup and the crock pot italian sausage soup. Both are great! If you are in the mind for a yummy pureed vegetable soup, you can try an acorn and butternut squash soup and a delicious cauliflower roasted red pepper soup on my other recipe blog.

I think you can now see how in love with soups I have been lately. With this cajun-style chicken soup, you can easily make it creamy or not creamy at all. The very first day we didn’t have it creamy, then the next day I added a little bit of milk to the soup.
