White Chicken Chili

This soup is one of my favorite recipes. It’s healthy and super easy. I try to make this on Sunday afternoon, and then I have dinner for the next night. I never feel like cooking on a Monday after a long day at work.

This soup also freezes well, so take your leftovers and save them for mid-week especially if you have a busy week ahead of you.

This dish is super for feeding a group too. I have made this several times for gatherings of six, and it’s always a hit.
