Ok so I shared this recipe on Insta Story & it no joke was one of my most engaged with stories so I thought why the heck not bring it to the blog in a more permanent place that you guys can reference whenever you need a quick & healthy recipe to whip up! Fare warning I make my chili overwhelmingly spicy & thick sooo if you aren’t into a burning mouth cooool it on the chili powder & jalapeño!

Anyway I love all these chili/ soup recipes popping up all over Pinterest now that labor day has passed but I just keep being disappointed, I go to these recipes just to find out they only call for 1 breast of chicken or 1 can of beans…like come on people, I don’t want to take the time to make this soup just to be starving an hour after I eat it!!!

Problem solved, I added in some hearty fiber {all the beans}, some lean protein {bison meat} & some healthy fat {avocado} to make this soup one you will literally die for {& want to make a thousand times because it keeps you full & tastes like heaven}.

Make it, & thank me later!
