Since my family has started a new healthy eating lifestyle, I’ve been searching daily for new recipes to try. A majority of our meals are vegetarian, but I still like to sneak some meat in there when I can to spice things up literally and figuratively. One of my favorite types of foods to eat all year is soup because it’s easy to make, convenient to eat, and it freezes easily. I’ve found the perfect recipe that’s savory and spicy enough for you to enjoy year round. You don’t want to miss this easy recipe for Cajun Chicken Sausage Soup! Be sure to “Pin” this one for later if you can’t check it out now.
