With our busy schedule with 4h, Taekwondo, Bible Studies, homeschooling, homeschool activities, and homesteading, it’s nice to have a warm soup or stew going in the crockpot in the morning. It makes the rest of the day go by much easier.
We love chilis, stews and soups and love having different combinations. White chicken chili is a great alternative to the ground beef/red bean chili that we have. It uses chicken, nourishing bone broth, and great northern beans. The cumin and jalapeno give it a spicy twist! We love having this with tortilla chips and guacamole on the side as well.

Heather’s homesteading journey started in 2006, with baby steps: first, she got a few raised beds, some chickens, and rabbits. Over the years, she amassed a wealth of homesteading knowledge, knowledge that you can find in the articles of this blog.
