Here I am with co-host of "Studio 5", Brooke. For my appearance on this episode, I made Chicken Tortilla soup. The recipe is in my 101 More Things to do with a Slowcooker book, and is a tried and true favorite. This is a recipe that I make when I do church group presentations, and is really good with guacamole and tortilla strips. It was fun to be on Studio 5 again, and hope to be invited back!
