Chicken Chili Cannellini Bean Soup

Tuesday, November 18, 2014
Chicken Chili Cannellini Bean Soup really hits the spot on a cold day and a favorite in cooler weather.
Here is a fast easy, inexpensive way to feed many people in a group or family.

This is packed with flavor and when it's rainy and cold very much a go-to recipe for me.

The flavor is somewhat like chili however the white beans, tomatoes and chicken makes this a whole meal.

I personally like this with shredded mozzarella, garlic bread and a few sliced black olives on top.

You can also serve this dish with cornbread or tortilla chips topped with extra sharp shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream it's all a match made in one heck of a great bowl of soup!

optional: add more chili powder and cumin around 1 teaspoon each or more to taste if like a stronger flavor.

In a large saucepot or slow cooker, add all the ingredients and simmer on low until the chicken is tender and falls apart. Top of stove around 2 hours time,  cooking in the slow cooker around 6 hours on high.

Serve with sour cream, broken tortilla chips, and shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese or make a big batch of  broccoli cornbread
