The premise is that you make soup, get to hang out with some great people, and help fight hunger all at the same time. You bring the soup you make to swap with the other attendees and you also bring food to donate to your local food pantry. So, I went to H-E-B and stocked up on canned soup to donate and bought all the ingredients for a really tasty and healthy chili. And because I’m me, I got overly-crafty with the recipe card for the swap!
What could be better than homemade soups, donating to my local food bank, hanging out with good people for a few hours and getting to do some paper crafts? Umm, not much, that’s what.
I had planned to make the white bean and chicken soup that my awesome friend Steph taught me; but, my colleagues convinced me to make a chili that I’m calling “5 Can Chili.” It’s super easy and tasty and good for you (it originally came from a Cooking Light recipe).
