Chicken and Bean Soup Buffalo Style

Rhoda with Southern Hospitality is having a Recipe Party and I thought I would share this tasty easy soup that was published in our local paper a couple of years ago.
It was one of Amber's (my daughter who recently passed away) favorite soups.  I couldn't bear to make it until Saturday when her best friend came by to visit.  I decided it was the perfect time to make it and remember how Amber enjoyed it every time I prepared it.  I hope you give it a try.

Thank you Rhoda for hosting this fun party!  I recently met Rhoda and she is as sweet and gracious as you would imagine. 
I can't wait to read everyone's recipes.

Chicken and Bean Soup Buffalo Style

2 t. oil
2 T minced onions
1 can (4 ounces) chopped mild green chiles
2 T McCormick’s Buffalo Wing seasoning mix
2 cans (16 ounces each) Northern beans
1 can (14 ounces) chicken broth
2 cups cooked and shredded chicken breasts
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack/ Colby cheese
1/3 cup prepared ranch dressing

Saute the onion in the oil until tender, but do not brown. Stir in chiles and seasoning mix. Add beans, chicken and broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a gentle bubble. Cook for about 10 min. stirring occasionally. Add cheese and stir until melted. Stir in ranch dressing. Serve warm with cornbread or tortilla chips.

Thanks for visiting,

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter. I have two little girls, and I can't imagine what you must be feeling.

I think it was brave of you to make one of your daughter's favorite recipes. It sounds delicious. :)

I hope God sends you a special peace today.

Dear sweet Donna, I just read your comment on Sugar Pie Farmhouse. I cried so deeply and poured out my heart to God on your behalf. I remember reading where author and speaker, Elisabeth Elliot, said "just do the next thing." I imagine that is what you are trying to do, small steps. May God strenghten you as you take each step. Hugs and love to you.

My family love buffalo wings and thought of making a soup that taste like them sounds wonderful.
Sorry to hear about your daughter, yes she's an angel in heaven. May God bless your family and you.

Donna, I just came over for my first visit. So nice to meet you! I've been scanning through several posts. Just had to say that I'm so sorry you lost your precious daughter. I can't even imagine. When you share a story like that in blogland many, many people will be thinking and praying for you. I hope that brings a little comfort.
