Northern White Bean Chili with Chicken

White chili is delicious, and when you learn to make this soup, you will be able to make hundreds of varieties of any soup you can imagine. White beans are different from their red chili brother, but they’re just as delicious and comforting on those days when only a good, homemade soup will do.

Once you make homemade soup, you will realize you can make it faster than going to the store to buy it and you will never buy canned soup again! 

I make soup when:

  • It’s hot or cold out 
  • I’ve bought too many vegetables for the week and they are looking a little sad
  • I have leftover meats like grilled chicken or sausages
  • I’m tired of sandwiches and salads for lunch
  • I’m watching my calories
