“Weekly Recipe: Chicken Chili Soup”

Happy Monday Everyone!

It is getting chilly out there as we come into the last week of October. This weeks recipe is Chicken Chili Soup, its easy to make and with 16 servings you have enough  for the week as well as some for the freezer. I drained the beans, rinsed them and changed the water to no salt chicken broth as well as increased it to 3  cups to make up for the drained beans. If you like it thicker just decrease the broth. Enjoy 🙂
