It’s not quite springtime here in Shanghai. Last weekend, I thought it was summer. This week, it was like the weather gods, balked at that assumption with a cold reminder that it’s not spring and it’s definitely not summer yet!

This chilly realisation could not have been more true the day that Shanghai Family Magazine’s March issue came out. It was a very wet/cold day with temperatures hovering around a mere 6C or 43F. All I wanted to do was cuddle up with a delicious hot bowl of soup and a good book. 

I love this recipe for Extra-Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup because it’s seriously really good and the perfect alternative to Taco Night!

I made my own Enchilada Sauce, but you could easily substitute it for store bought in a pinch!
