White Bean Soup (Hot)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 35 mins

It's cold and windy today and I wanted something to warm us up. My friend PaulaG sent me some Green Chile Powder so I wanted to use it. This soup has got a lot of heat to it so stay away from it if you don't like hot spices. We do and it was just what I was looking for.

This is a very tasty soup that my DH and I enjoyed today for lunch. I made it last night and warmed it up this afternoon. I think the flavor is wonderful. I haven't made many bean soups before, but I will now! Thanks for sharing.

I used cannellini beans only because I didnt have any variety of white bean and the green chili adds a little heat - I added more jalapeno's since we like it hot - was a nice combination - thanks!!!!

It was just ok for me. I didn't feel there was a ton of flavor for some reason. I added everything it stated, the only change I made was made it with Pinto beans, because I didn't have any white beans on hand. My DH liked it, and thought the spicyness was great.
