I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day weekend! My husband and I didn’t go out to dinner on Saturday because we knew the restaurants would be super crowded. A crowded, noisy restaurant just doesn’t seem very romantic to me. We both prefer to go out to a restaurant on a weekday and be able to enjoy dinner together. The plan is to go out and celebrate one day this week.
We were blessed with gorgeous, warm weather for the day, so I got in a 7 mile run on Saturday. Forget the box of chocolates, I’ll take being able to wear shorts in February over that any day. 🙂
However, the weather has once again turned gloomy and chilly as of last night. The trees in our area are so confused. There are some that are blooming and some that have buds beginning to appear. It’s like, just pick a season already! Preferably Spring, okay?
This Mexican Chicken White Bean Soup with Lime Sour Cream makes a tasty and simple lunch or dinner dish. I used regular ground chicken, but you could sub ground chicken breast, if you prefer. The lime sour cream really makes this dish. It just adds a delicious creaminess to the soup. I used the Eden Organic Cannellini Beans, which don’t have any salt, so I decided to skip the draining and rinsing of the beans. Plus, I kind of like that it gives the soup a little thicker consistency. It’s totally up to you if you want to drain your beans. You may need to add a bit of extra liquid if you do.
The salsa I used was Trader Joe’s Organic Tomatillo Roasted Yellow Chili Salsa. I really like the flavor and think it’s quite a bargain at $2.29. If you have another favorite salsa, you could certainly use that instead. I just wouldn’t go with a really hot salsa for this, especially if kids will be eating it. With the TJ’s salsa, it wasn’t spicy at all.
I buy bags of frozen organic sweet corn from TJ’s also. Almost all the of corn produced in the US is genetically modified, so it’s best to buy organic when possible. Trader Joe’s frozen organic sweet corn is USDA certified organic.
