White Chili

It’s certainly still winter but this weekend we were blessed with a beautiful and mild Sunday, the kind that promises spring is just around the corner. A spicy, tangy soup works well on sunny-but-still-cold days like these, not too heavy but still warming. This recipe is called chili but instead of being a stew-like combo of beef and beans, it’s a brightly spiced green vegetable soup. And it comes together in just 30 minutes, a simple recipe for a quick and delicious dinner.

For my easy supper, I subbed the chicken out for a vegetarian version, replacing it with zucchini, and added some black beans for additional body and protein. The combination of cumin, oregano, fresh cilantro, and lime really seals in the tangy kick. The result is delicious and just feels good eating. For a little more texture, serve with toasted tortilla slices. Enjoy! Read More
