Chicken White Bean Soup and 2012 Halloween Sneak Peak!

It’s almost Halloween and my boys are ready!  We got their costumes a little early this year, so they have been ready for a while!  I would say this is the first year that I have ever really wanted to Trick or Treat in our own neighborhood.  In the past our boys weren’t old enough or we hadn’t been in that neighborhood long enough to really feel the desire to stay and see all the neighbor kids, etc.  So, we had always gone up to my sisters neighborhood, along with my mom and other sister(s).

But, this year, we are going to attempt splitting our time!  We’ll start out the night Trick or Treating in our neighborhood and then head up to my sisters to get pictures with the cousins and enjoy our Hot Chocolate and Donuts!

We generally do a Soup Party on Halloween, but this year we did it early and carved pumpkins.  I always make my Easy Homemade Breadsticks recipe (double it of course) and then this year I made a new Chicken and White Bean Soup recipe that I got from a friend.

And, I’m gonna share it with you now!



1 1/2 pound of Chicken, diced
1 Medium Onion
1 T Oil
2 Cans of White Beans
1 small can Diced Green Chilies
14 oz Chicken Broth
1 1/2 t Garlic Powder
1 t Salt
1 t Oregano
1 t Pepper
1 t Cumin
1/4 t Cayenne Pepper
1 C Sour Cream
1/2 C Whipping Cream
Sautéed the chicken and onion together in oil until the chicken is cooked. Put Chicken and Onion in a large pot and add the White Beans, Green Chilies, Chicken Broth, Garlic Powder, Salt, Oregano, Pepper, Cumin and Cayenne Pepper.  Bring to a boil and let simmer for 30 minutes.   Add Sour Cream and Whipping Cream and let simmer for another 15-30 minutes.

If you’re making the soup ahead of time – after I saute the Chicken and Onion I add everything in my crockpot and let simmer in it. 30 minutes before wanting to serve I add the Sour Cream and Whipping Cream. This is a great make ahead soup!

Serve with tortilla chips, cheese, guacamole or whatever sounds good on it!  Yum!
