White Bean Soup
My sister has been begging me to try this recipe for a long time. She has been eating it all year long. Soup in summer just don’t mesh well for me so I put off making it until I could justify eating soup. With the cooler weather we have had recently, I decided to finally give it a go.
This soup is wonderful! The flavor is fantastic and it is perfect for warming you up on a chilly day! It will definitely be a cold weather dinner recipe that is a regular in our rotation!
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (4 oz.) can chopped mild green chillies
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 (15.5 oz) cans white beans, drained
- 2 cups cooked chopped chicken
- 3 cups chicken both
- 1½ cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
- 1 cup sour cream
- Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and saute until tender. Stir in garlic, chilies, cumin, and cayenne pepper, and saute 2 minutes. Add beans, chicken, and broth and bring to a boil. Take off heat and stir in cheese until melted. Add sour cream and stir until smooth.

Love that your sister has been at you for a long time to make this and you finally did and it was worth it...gosh I love it when recipes turn out that way! Looks so good and hearty, too!
soup looks delish --- was wondering what kind of bread/biscuit you made to accompany soup. they, too look divine! : )
Just wanted to say how interesting and fun your recipes are! I find myself pinning at least a couple of your recipes every day! Such interesting ideas and just pure yumminess, with a bit of a twist that makes them new and different! Fun to find a fresh take on a food blog!
I was curious if you knew about how many servings this recipe makes.
I also would like to know how many servings this makes; I want to make it for my family & they like HUGE bowls of soup!!
Oh my goodness ! I made this soup last night. It was one of the best soups I have ever tried. I did not use jack cheese I used Asiago cheese instead. It even added more flavor. I also used Sam's Club Chicken Asiago sausage instead of chicken only because that is what I had on hand. My entire family loved it ! I can't wait to make your other soup recipes. We bought soft pretzels from Sam's Club to dip in the soup it was so yummy. This one is a keeper !
can the bean soup be done without chicken?
Didn't taste too good.
