soup-er recipes.

Soup, what a weird thing to always be yappin' about, right? But alas, here I go again. Now that it's cold outside, I make it at least twice a week for dinner so you could say that I'm beginning to perfect my Fall list of Favorite Soup Recipes. This particular white chili above has taken the lead as far as white chilis go. It's hearty and packed with flavor, and like most other soup recipes, you can sort of just eyeball the ingredients and throw in whatever extra you have on hand.

Directions:

In a slow cooker, cook chicken with bouillon cubes and water to cover (approx. 3 to 4 cups) for about 4-5 hours on low. When finished cooking, remove the chicken, shred, and set aside, along with the saved broth. In a large pot, sauté chopped onions and peppers in the oil. Add the cumin, chili powder, garlic, cilantro, beans, green chilies, chicken, and saved broth and cook for at least 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste, garnish with toppings, and voilà! Dinner is served. Less than 5 dishes dirtied and prepared in under 20 minutes, my kind of meal. (*serves 4)

Yum, looks almost exactly like my white chili! I add chicken sausage too, though. I think I need to put that on the menu for an easy pre-Thanksgiving dinner next week.

Once I find a recipe I love for something I am always nervous to try another one! But this sounds so good! Thanks for the recipe! Here is the chicken chili recipe I got from a friend a few years...it's SO good too!

1 big glass jar of great northern beans

Pound and a half of cooked and shredded chicken

24 ounces chunky salsa (i tossed mine in the blender since i'm not a fan of chunky salsa!)

6 oz can green chile

3 cups chicken broth (2 cans)

16 oz shredded cheese

2 tablespoons cumin (i skipped this)

cook in a crock pot on low all day!

serve with tortilla chips + enjoy!
