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.
