Jalapeno Popper Chicken Soup

Yum

This soup will really warm you up from the heat of the jalapenos. It's packed full of heat, sharp cheddar cheese, and chicken.

This soup was first made, not by me, but by Nick! He made it when I was sick with the flu in 2016 and I unfortunately did not eat it. So I had to have it again and we did! We had it a couple more times and this particular time was one where I made it. When we were first married, Nick didn't really cook ever because he didn't know how. Plus I also enjoyed it (and still do!). He really started to learn when I became pregnant with Mason because he was about to spend a few months separated from us while he finished finaling out of active duty AND I couldn't stand to cook anything. I still am the person who cooks most of the time, but Nick definitely jumps in when I've had a hard day or I'm sick to make dinner for us.

I really loved this soup because it's not only going to warm you up because it's soup, but also because it's spicy. So it really warms you up entirely. I loved the cream cheese and white sharp cheddar with the jalapenos. Chicken was the perfect meat, but I won't lie, I really want to try pork sausage.
