Would you believe it warmed back up again here in Houston this past week?! Pretty sad!!
The funny thing is, my mom has told me how cool (and sometimes cold) it’s been back in Arizona the past month. Pretty ironic for me to think since we always sweated a bit on Halloween in Arizona. Looks like I’ll be doing the same here in Houston (insert sad face!!)
That’s not keeping me from making soups, though. I officially declared it Soup Season, and by golly, the soup making will continue!! LOL!
I know I shared a Creamy White Chicken Chili last year and another one White Chicken Chili last week, but it’s probably our favorite soup so we’re bound to try several recipes for it. This is another Chicken Chili Soup that was beyond delicious and definitely worth sharing.
This recipe called for corn which wasn’t in the other recipes, and was a perfect addition! I’m actually wishing I had a bowl of this right now. It just looks so good!

As always, you can throw in or leave out any other ingredients that you think would taste good in this. I may try a little sour cream next time. Couldn’t hurt, right?
