This soup I made up one night with just the ingredients in my kitchen and now it has become a regular in our household. It pairs wonderfully with fresh cornbread on a cold winter night. Feel free to substitute the canned chicken for fresh or even use up your leftovers.

  1. Add white beans and drained black beans into a large soup pot and turn heat to medium-high.
  2. Add canned drained chicken breast and flake in pot. Can substitute leftover chicken or cook fresh.
  3. Dice your onion and green pepper and add to pot.
  4. Add all remaining ingredients excluding butter.
  5. Stir well and bring mixture to a boil. Let boil for 15 minutes and then cover and let simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and add 3 tablespoons butter and cream into soup while stirring. Serve.

An easy weeknight dinner, with lots of protein. A little on the bland side, if I make it again, I'll probably more onion, and a lot more hot sauce.

I loved this recipe. My entire family did and the kids, especially one, is very picky. I accidently drained the white beans so I had zero liquid. I added a can of chicken broth. There still wasn't enough liquid so I added another can. I sauteed the onions and peppers because I thought this might appeal to the kids better if I was lucky. It's a definate keeper!

As written, I don't think that my husband and I would care for this soup, and it would get 3 stars. However, with some changes, we found it to be a comforting meal on a snowy night. I was puzzled that there is no liquid listed in the ingredients; odd for a soup. I first sautéed onion and pepper in a bit of the butter. Then, added chicken stock with the rinsed beans and some leftover turkey breast. I omitted the sugar and added a bit of cayenne pepper to the mix. Served up with cornbread, as suggested and enjoyed a simple meal.
