Soup for Dinner

Dear Ladies,

Soup would be excellent for dinner now while the days are cool, so I was going to send you the recipe for Taco soup. However, I already send that one to you. It is on the blog page for you to use any time.

Another easy dish for a cool night would be White Chicken Chili. All of the ingredients can be put in the crock pot in the morning and will be ready by dinner. Crock pots are great for days when you are going to be out all day. Either you can put it together the night before or in the morning before you leave. This chili isn't very spicy, so everyone should enjoy it.

White Chicken Chili
1 medium onion, chopped
3 Tablespoons oil
1 (4oz) can of chopped green chilies, drained
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 (15.8 oz) cans of great northern beans
1 (14.5 oz) can of chicken broth(I usually just use bouillon)
1 1/2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken

Put all the above ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low all day. Serve with Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese, sour cream, andtortilla chips.

We like corn bread with our soup, so I'm including that recipe for you also.

Corn Bread

1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup corn meal
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1 beaten egg

Mix all ingredients together and bake in a 8x8" pan. I bake mine in an iron skillet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
