This was awesome! I used a white onion, garlic in the jar, jalapeno from a jar, and chicken bouillion/water. I did not use the parsley, however.. but, I did also add a can of black beans to the white. This was quick, easy and delicious. I will definately make this again, but I don't understand why the recipe says "serves 4". This is easily 6 very large servings. I served with mexican blend cheese, lite sour cream and more cilantro. So good!!
