One of our favorite Fall traditions is Soup Sundays, if you’ve been reading here for a few years you may have tried a few of our favorite recipes even! Every Sunday, we spend the afternoon at home watching football & cooking up a huge batch of soup, each week trying something new or rotating in one of our favorites from each year. We kicked off this year with white chicken chili, it has been a favorite for a year or two and we were all so excited to eat it again! This is totally a Fall meal because 1. you roast a whole chicken (or two) at 400 degrees so it heats up your house a bit 2. it’s like nose-running-spicy which is never fun in hot weather and 3. it is straight up comfort food!!
I have used this same white chicken chili recipe, and just made a few adjustments. We use a little more chicken than what is called for, this time I roasted two whole chickens and we used what was left to whip up my favorite chicken salad to have for lunch all week! I simmer this for almost an hour (with the lid on for the first half!) because I find that it makes the chicken more tender & also blends the flavors more so it is a little bit spicier. We also topped ours with Fritos, because that’s how I had white chicken chili for the first time at an old friends house and now I believe that is the ONLY way to eat it! 😉 Side note, Fritos are in my top five favorite foods.
We usually do Soup Sundays up until the week of Thanksgiving, up next will be our favorite homemade chicken noodle soup (we make our own noodles and they seriously make it the BEST soup ever!), Loaded Baked Potato Soup, Butternut Squash & Bacon Soup, Brandon’s Bomb Chili, Creamy Tomato Soup + Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Chicken Tortilla Soup and Sizzling Rice Soup (a recipe I have been trying to perfect for seriously five years).
So, now I need you all to tell me your best soup recipes if there is something not listed here that we must try!! Also, please share if you are joining in this fun tradition with us! Thanks for coming along for the ride, can’t wait to cook together all Fall long! XO261
