White Bean Chicken Chili/Soup

I found this yummy soup/chili recipe over at My Kitchen Cafe. Melanie over at Kitchen cafe called it Chili but I already have a chicken chili recipe that we love that is oh so not that good for you with cream and sour cream in it so this to me is more of a soup than a chili because it is healthier for you. I tweeked the recipe a little I will write it as I made it but if you would like the original recipe go here for it. Give this soup a try it is really easy and fast to make!!! Plus go Check out My Kitchen Cafe. She has some really great recipes and the ones I have tried are always yummy!!!

White Bean Chicken/Turkey Soup adapted from My Kitchen Cafe
1 T. olive oil
1 onion, diced
2-3 stalks celery chopped
1-2 T. minced garlic
2 (14.5 oz each) cans great Northern beans, undrained
2 cups cooked diced or shredded chicken or turkey
4-6 cups chicken broth
1 cup salsa (I used red salsa but I think I will try green salsa next time)
2 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp celery salt or just plain salt if you add the fresh celery
1 cup frozen corn
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

In a medium sauce pan, heat the olive oil on medium heat, Add the onions, celery and garlic and cook until tender. Add all the remainder of the ingredients except the corn and cheese, and bring to a boil and simmer for how ever long you like. I let mine simmer for a half and hour but that is not necessary if you are short ontime. Then add the corn and continute to simmer until corn is heated through. Then add the cheese a handful at a time, stirring to let each addition melt before adding the next. Serve immediately after all the cheese is melted.
