Creole White Beans with Chicken

Hey Naturalistas!

I decided that it is definitely time to share a recipe. I am long over due and thought today would be perfect to share this healthy recipe. My family loves this recipe and my husband raves to everyone about it. It's definitely a staple around here and one of the best soups I've ever tried. I know that says a lot, but it really is! I was inspired by Budget Bytes which is an awesome blog for different recipes, but I like to put my own twist to it and to make it quick and easy for my busy family. The soup makes you feel so good inside and the flavors are amazing!  I would love for everyone to try for themselves.

  12. ½ Tbsp smoked paprika
  13. freshly cracked pepper

  3. Sauté the vegetables in a large pot with 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, or until they begin to look transparent.
  4. Add the 2 cans of drained beans, 6 cups of broth, and seasoning
  5. Shred the rotisserie chicken and add to the pot
