((Easy)) White Chicken Chili

As I was trying to think of what to make for dinner the other night, I grabbed a can of white northern beans, flipped her over to the recipe on the back and decided to roll with it. I had most of the ingredients it requested and made a quick trip to the store for the rest!!

I love how easy they are to make, plus they are so hearty and fulfilling!
Here is an easy White Chicken Chili recipe for a quick weeknight meal.

  • 2 cans white northern chili beans
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can green chiles (small)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can gold/white corn
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • garlic, salt, & pepper to taste
Make it:
  • Put everything in a stockpot (stir and mix well) and bring to a boil, turn down and simmer for 20-25 minutes!
  • That's it! That easy!!
  • Additional toppings: fritos, avocado, lime, cheese, tortilla chips

'Tis the season for soups! My favorite!
What is your favorite soup recipe??

**Crockpot suggestions: Place two chicken breasts in, white an onion soup mix, cream of chicken soup, and garlic, salt & pepper to taste. Cook on HIGH for 4 hours, shred.
Add the rest of ingredients and cook on HIGH for 1-2 more hours!

Sweater weather is upon us and I am in love!
I was hanging out in one of my favorites (from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale!) today and thought I would put together some of my recent sweater finds for you to shop!!
I like being able to layer with sweaters and cardigans; dress them up or down. They also are the perfect compliment to your favorite fall/winter scarves. Since I am always freezing, I just love how comfy and cozy they are.
The best part... these are all UNDER $50! (with discounts at register!)
Seriously though, give me all the sweaters!!!
Also! Not a bad idea to start your Christmas shopping with these awesome deals!

Hope you're having a great Sunday!

Fall Freezer Meal Ideas

Fall can sometimes be the start of the busiest time of the year! Kids are back in school and after school activities resume, some of the last few nice days of the year (at least in Michigan) are here, and the holidays are lurking around the corner. Meal times can be stressful and difficult coming up with ideas and TIME to make them! So, today I wanted to share with you some simple and easy meals that you can freeze and pull out when you're in a pinch for dinner!

My sister-in-law and I spent a recent rainy Saturday afternoon preparing these dishes and I am already taking full advantage of them! We made about 42 burritos (breakfast and lunch/dinner types) and 13 meals.

The meal breakdown:
-2 Lasagnas
-4 Pot pies
-7 Chicken/Broccoli/Rice casseroles
-25 breakfast burritos
-17 black bean and rice burritos

Costs & Things:
-We got aluminum containers for the meals at the Dollar store.
-Tin foil and freezer bags we got from Meijer. (After we rolled the burritos, we wrapped them in tin foil and then stored them in freezer ziploc bags, about 4-5 per)
-We spent around $86 at Costco (there we got 4 rotisserie chickens, 2 big blocks of cheese (cheddar & sharp white), 2 dozen eggs, a ton of tortilla shells, and bacon)
-The rotisserie chickens saved us a ton of TIME! Just needed to shred it and add to our mixes!! I highly recommend this route!
-We spent around $126 at Meijer getting all the rest of our "supplies"! ;)

I hope these inspire you to do some meal prepping and go-ahead meals!
Thanks for joining me on the blog tonight!
xoxo and CHEERS!
