Click the photo to jump straight to the recipe.  The inspiration for this recipe was a white chili recipe that was supposed to be super easy.  It didn’t turn out like I thought, so this new recipe was born!!  It’s kinda nice when a flop of one idea leads you to a whole new idea!

The only thing that needed cooked for this recipe is chicken, but I already had some Mexican Shredded Chicken in my freezer!  Since I was making this soup to eat for lunch, I didn’t think there was any point in heating it up just to put it back in the fridge for the next day.  I tried several containers before it hit me that my large mason jars would work perfectly!!

In Jar

I used the quart size (32oz) wide mouth jars.  If you can’t find them locally, Amazon has a huge selection.  Click here to see the jars that I am using.  All you  have to do is measure a few ingredients into each jar, and you’re done!!

This is a really big serving.  It barely fit in my bowl.  You could definitely split it into 8 smaller servings if you wanted soup and something else.  I did eat just the soup and found it completely satisfying and filling.  And I enjoy having a huge bowl of something but staying in my points+ budget!!
