We are slowly adjusting to the weather here in west Texas. And when I say adjusting, I really mean loving being in 70 degree weather in February and March wearing t-shirts. We have not had to pull out our winter coats once since moving here. Love that!
I can honestly say I do not miss the cold or snow from the midwest at all. As I have gotten older, my body has resisted that kind of weather. I totally understand now why so many older people have second homes in Florida for the winter months. My guess is that we will try very hard to be able to afford to do that too. At least in my mind we will…the budget may say otherwise.
Even though it has been very warm and sunny during the days, we learned the nights do cool off very quickly here. I may love these warm days, but I like chilly nights when I can make a big pot of hot soup for us to warm up with.
This soup was one of those last minute, “Oh, yeah. The family needs to eat real food. I should probably make something.” I have been super busy with a big project lately that has had me pretty distracted. Let’s just say I’m ready to be done with it. Yay for the end being in sight!
This white chicken chili is one of my go to’s when I need a quick dinner, but I didn’t have all those ingredients this time. So, I quickly grabbed a few things from the cupboard and fridge and threw it all in one big pot. Voilà! Cheesy chicken soup in no time at all.
My kiddos devoured it in no time at all, so I knew I had to make it again. Luckily I wrote things down as I threw them in the pot, so it was easy to make for dinner (and pictures) the next week too.
What I love most about this soup is that you only need one pot to cook everything in. Less dishes to wash after dinner is always a big plus, right?
I keep plenty of cans of veggies in our cupboard for quick easy add in’s to our dinners. We love spicy food so we always buy the tomatoes with green chilies. If your family isn’t into spicy, go ahead and use regular tomatoes.
Another convenience food that we always buy are the ready-to-go whole chickens at Sam’s or Costco. $5 for a chicken that someone else roasted? Heck to the yeah!!! We buy 2 at a time usually. One to eat and one to freeze for easy meals later.
Use whatever pasta you already have in your cupboard. This soup is great for using up all those leftover boxes. Just make sure to adjust your boil time for whatever pasta you choose. I found these cute little wagon wheel pasta noodles at the store that cook in about 10 minutes, so I have been using them in everything lately.
Today looks like another cool and chilly day, so I’m thinking a pot of cheesy chicken soup might need to happen again.
