We’re going by the calendar and not by the temperature and since it’s officially Fall, we’re having soup for the next few days.
I love White Chicken Chili and have been meaning to make it all week so . . today is the day. I want to make several different soups and have in the freezer because when I come back from Missouri, it takes me a few days to get caught up – laundry done, rested up, back in the routine and cooking again so if I have foods I love in the freezer, I can grab those instead of going out to eat.
This is the recipe I’m using – Quick Pressure Cooker Chicken Chili.
And this is the picture that made me wonder if I should or shouldn’t show it – the virtue signaling.
- The chicken is canned from chicken I bought on sale at Aldi
- Instead of cans of beans, a couple of days ago I made white beans from dry beans, knowing I’d want leftovers for this recipe.
- Onions and garlic came from the garden
- Salsa verde is some I made and canned a couple of years ago.
- Chile peppers are Hatch peppers we bought, roasted and froze last year.
- For the chicken broth, there was a little in the jar but I added water and Better than Bouillon, which I like much better than most storebought chicken broth.
Now, I can hardly wait for dinner!
No signaling. There should never be shame about having skills and sharing them. You are good at a bunch of stuff, share away. You’ve changed more than one persons life for the better. Throw that idiot woman’s trash where it belongs – away. So there.

Judy, I find it interesting that you mention “Better than Boullon” because I just saw an ad on the TV (the Food Network I believe) while I was at the gym the other day and was wondering about this. I have never used it but thought I might give it a try. Once again, you have given me the “go ahead” to give it a try and see if it is something I’ll like. Thanks!
I admire the work you have put in, so if you’re signaling, you deserve it!
Howdy – I had to go back a bit to catch up on your posts. I don’t think you are virtue signaling since you are just telling us what you are doing and teaching us along the way. I think “virtue signaling” is a thing on the east & west coastal urban areas. The majority of the people I meet in the center part of the country are rather down to home and are very accepting. Oh well.
But, you do influence people. You kept me quilting, got me to try knitting again, started checking out being better prepared for emergencies, doing more cooking. Heck, I even bought an Instant Pot because of you. Actually, I now have two of them with extra interiors, lids, etc. But, some of the other posts about kitchen stuff, I read with interest and then decide that I don’t need that gadget. It still was interesting to read. And I laugh about your life with the cats, chickens and Vince. But, let’s talk chili…
Yesterday, I was at Sprouts and the chicken breasts were $.99/pound. Yup – that cheap. I bought 4 packs which is about 14 pounds. I thought I would cook one pack for chicken salad and then wrap up the rest of the breasts to freeze. Now, I am in the mood for some chili. Now, to cook the beans and then add the chicken and everything else. I just have to decide if I want to go back to see if they still have chicken at that price! But, I have to repack what I have for future meals before buying more.

That’s a great price! Good for you on that find!

Hi Judy, I have never heard of the term “virtue signalling” which is odd since I’m from the east coast. One of the best things about you and your blog is that you don’t make assumptions about others no matter where they are from.
I learn lots from you, think about things that I never had an interest in before and try new things because of the things you share with us. Thanks for all that you share with your readers .

I wouldn’t have Instant Pots without you mentioning them. I bought a smoker due to your comments about Vince and smoking. I’ve given the FD some very serious thought. What…wait…you’re costing me money!!!!! LOL! Seriously tho, stop apologizing as there is absolutely no need to. You’ve never said :you all need to… You all have to….” etc. You state what you do. Keep posting as we all learn a lot from you. Pooh to the nay sayers.
It looks good. Get over the virtue signaling thing. It isn’t you. LOL
