Happy National homemade soup day! Today’s recipe is one of my favorite soups or chili of all time! It is a white chicken chili that I have been eating for at least two meals a day for the past week. And, I wish there was more in the crock pot! Follow the recipe below for an amazing homemade soup to celebrate today!
2 Cups White Cannellini Beans, in package, not cans!
1 Package of Mushrooms
1 Cup Frozen Edamame
1 Cup Frozen Corn
2 Cups Shredded Chicken
8 ounces shredded pepper jack cheese
1 1/2 boxes of Chicken Stock
Chili Powder, Salt Pepper, Paprika
Avocado and black olives for garnish
Follow cannellini beans soaking and cooking directions
Make sure cook the beans in your crock pot and you use chicken stock instead of water for more flavor and to be able to add the rest of the chili ingredients to the crock pot!
Sauté corn and edamame until charred on the outside, add to crock pot
Sauté mushrooms until golden brown and add to crock pot
Add salt, pepper, chili powder, and paprika
Add shredded chicken to crock pot (or bake in oven and shred using two forks)
As chili cooks, add spices as needed
Cook in crock pot on medium heat for about 6 hours in order for the flavors to blend together
Thirty minutes before you serve, stir in cheese
When ready to serve, spoon into bowls and top with sliced avocado and black olives
Here are a few other homemade soup recipes to celebrate!
