One lazy weekend afternoon right after Christmas, in the midst of taking down the tree and lots of cleaning, I threw this fast and easy soup together to feed our little family fast with minimal dishes and effort involved. Garnish with cheese or chopped onions. We got out a few chips to dip in it also. It was a hit!

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat until bubbling and frothy. Whisk in flour until it forms a smooth, golden paste, about 45 seconds. Pour in milk slowly, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook and stir until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir white beans into the saucepan. Add green chile peppers, onion powder, cumin, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Cream or half-and-half may also be used and will result in a thicker consistency.

Optional proteins can be added, such as cooked cubed chicken or diced smoked sausage.

1.9.17 This is a really quick, easy, and tasty soup. I did add more of all the spices, but I think that’s just personal taste and an adjustment that anybody would make. Used great northern beans and loved the soup’s creaminess, even when made with skim milk. Plan to serve for dinner this evening with a double decker turkey club sandwich. AishaSahar, we enjoyed your soup! Read More

I made this tonight. it was a quick and easy soup to make. The flavor was good. it seemed a little things so next time I might pure half of the beans to thicken it up. I had to use great northern beans because that is what u had available to me. overall it was good just a little thin in my opinion. Read More
