Soup Recipes

Some of you have asked...so here they are.

White Chili
This recipe originally came from a friend of mine and many of you know her,  Jamie Carling.  So if you see her, give her a high five cause her soup was delicious!

1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
1 T olive oil
1 1/2 t garlic salt
4 chicken breasts, cooked and diced (the last time we made this soup at our house we grilled the chicken on the bbq, it added an amazing flavor!)
2 cans northern 
white beans, rinsed and drained
2 small cans of diced green chiles
1 t cumin
1 t oregano
1 t salt
1/2 t white pepper
1 cup chicken broth
1 can of corn, drained

1 C sour cream
1/2 C heavy cream

Brown onions and fresh garlic in olive oil until clear then pour into a crock pot.  In the crock pot combine all ingredients except the sour cream and heavy cream.  Stir together then heat on low for 4-6 hours.  Right before serving add the creams and stir until heated through (they will curdle if you add them too early or cook them too long).  Serves 8.
