Southwest White Bean Chili

 

 

Southwest White Bean Chili to save these rainy day blues!! There is nothing I crave more than a big bowl of chili on a day like today.... maybe with some of my favorite cornbread muffins?

This soup checks all the boxes... it's hearty, creamy, packed with vegetables, and just begging for all the toppings. 

A must make!

In a large soup pot, add your onion, celery, and carrots. Saute until onions become translucent, 4-5 minutes. Add your garlic, red pepper, and jalapeño ,  saute a few minutes more. Add in your cumin and stir.

Add in your cauliflower rice, mushrooms, corn and saute until all flavors are combined, 1-2 minutes.

Add your rotel tomatoes, vegetable broth, cannelloni beans, nutritional yeast, sriracha, salt, pepper, and stir. Bring mix to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Stir in your spinach.

Stir in your blender mix and allow to simmer for 20 minutes so soup can thicken. Stir in your lime. Taste and adjust seasoning.
