White Chicken Chili - one of the best soups ever! Filled with chicken, beans, corn and more! { }

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.

White Chicken Chili - one of the best soups ever! Filled with chicken, beans, corn and more! { }

This White Bean chicken chili 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?

    For sure, Jamielyn! Nothing better than a nice bowl of soup on a cool (not cold just yet in TX), rainy day. 😉


I can’t believe how muggy it was today in Houston. I had to take my daughter shopping for a homecoming dress and the air was so thick! I’m glad you are making it soup season because I just can’t bring myself to do it when I’m still in shorts…sigh. But I’m loving all your recipes and can’t wait to try them when it gets just a tad cooler…lol!! Thanks for another great recipe!!
