I belong to a great group of writers, Sweethearts of the West. As the title indicates, we all write stories (historical and contemporary) set in the West. This year, we are sponsoring a category in the Brenda Novak 2013 Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes that includes a children’s basket, Romancing the West basket, critiques, an ebook, and more. Brenda’s annual auction runs May 1-31. So far, there are over 800 items up for auction. I’m donating several items to the auction, including a Tex-Mex Cookbook basket in the Sweethearts category.

For this week’s Wednesday’s Chow, I’m sharing a recipe from TEX-MEX RECIPES.
Salsa Corn Soup with Chicken
3 quarts chicken broth
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced
2 (10-oz) packages frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
4 (11-oz) jars of Salsa
4 large carrots, diced
In a Dutch oven, bring chicken broth to a boil. Add chicken, corn, salsa and carrots. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until carrots are tender.
Serve with lime wedges for squirting on soup.
