Spicy Chicken Bean Soup

Fall is officially here in NH, in the 60’s, sweatshirts are out & leggings are a staple so the crockpot has officially been whipped out. If you don’t have one, I love this one cause you can put it on the stove top to brown the onions/ garlic…If you’re willing to spend a bit more, this one w/ the cast iron insert is larger and could be put in the oven too!

Ok on to the recipe…whip out your blanket scarves & football attire cause this soup would be the PERFECT for football sunday or post apple picking dinner with the fam.
