Chicken and Chilies White Cream Soup

Chicken and Chilies White Cream Soup

Hey friends! Halloween is over. In case you didn’t know.

Or are you in some sort of sugar coma? I know you’re expecting a crazy sweet dessert using up all those leftover candies that you have been munching on, one by one, every hour.

But I thought instead I would give you a dinner recipe! It’s been awhile since I shared a delicious dinner idea with you all! Don’t worry I’ll be back with some treats soon!!

So let’s get to it! This recipe started out with every intention of being a white chicken chili. But then it occurred to me, my family hates beans. Anyone else have this problem? All four of my kids, and my husband, hate beans. It’s quite a problem. So, I decided to play around with this and give you a hearty chicken and rice soup instead! I hope you enjoy this as much as we did! Serve it up with my favorite garlic knots or cheesy onion beer bread!

**soup will thicken as it sits, so eat immediately for best flavor and texture!!

  1. We actually love beans but anything creamy and hearty like your recipe is a winner here.

  2. I never used to like beans, but now I do! Maybe they will change their minds one day too πŸ™‚ This looks really good – warm and comforting!

  3. This looks like a great soup to add to my rotation..we are huge soup addicts in my house! Yum.

  4. I have a really good white soup to make!! I need to get on that. πŸ˜‰

    I’m doing a giveaway right now…

  5. Oh no – they don’t like beans!? But they’re so good! πŸ˜‰ This looks like an awesome solution for a version without beans – I’ll definitely have to try it.

  7. YUM!!! I love white chicken chili…with the beans:-) Yours looks so rich and creamy…perfect for a cold winter night. I gotta try this one for sure!!!

  8. Oh man, this looks soooo good. It’s almost like my favorite sour cream chicken enchiladas, but in soup form. I’m not sure about the rice, but I suppose you need some kind of carb in there as a filler. I’m definitely making this next week.

  9. Love how rich and creamy this looks! Definitely adding this to our soup rotation!

  12. I cannot wait to make this. It looks so delicious.

  13. Aimee! Yes, I am in a sugar coma after this past weekend. I made some incredible candy bar cookies with ALL sorts of candy bars in them…. so I am in need of a savory dish and something filling to keep me satisfied. I want to eat a huge bowl of this like everyday. I love creamy filling soups – esp as the weather gets colder and colder. It’s going to be 40F here today. NOT FUN. But what I love most about this chilly weather is warming up to a soup like this when I get home πŸ™‚

  14. Aimee! I totally love the idea behind this soup – it kind of reminds me of my favorite green chile enchiladas! My hubby would totally love it πŸ™‚
