White Chili Soup

Jennifer H


I love a great soup that can be made on a weeknight, and this fits the bill! The chicken cooks in the soup, so there's no need for pre-cooking. I like to use mild chilis, but if you like a little zip in your bowl, feel free to use the hot ones! Top with avocado, cheese, sour cream, cilantro - your imagination is the limit. The Cojita adds quite a bit of salt, so keep this in mind as you are preparing and be sure to sample often!
