Chicken Portabella Mushroom Tortilla Soup

Now that I only go to the grocery store two times a month instead of every week it has become a habit for me to make larger servings so I always have something healthy prepared and ready to heat up or take down from the freezer.

Perhaps it is the warmer Spring weather that makes me lazier when it come to cooking?  Once the Summer hits with those 90 and 100 degree days then I stick with  fruit, salads, veggies, beans, potatoes, pasta, tofu, smoothies, cereal, wraps, soup in my Vitamix. Basically when it gets that hot I try to avoid using my oven and naturally I have much less of an appetite for winter type foods.
