White Chili with Chicken

{White Chili}

I have to admit I love all the seasons.  I enjoy the cool fall days and breathtaking foliage.
I love winter and beautiful snow.  I love how everything comes to life in the spring.
I love moving into "soup season"  This is one of many soups we enjoy.
It was a recipe I got from my cousin Gina.  It is very good.
We all gobble it up..and with some warm crusty bread-perfection!
Hope you enjoy!
