Hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup Recipe

I've made this soup many times for my husband and four sons. Even though they're married and have homes of their own, my sons still like to come to our house to eat. This recipe is always a hit with them.

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen corn
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 3 large potatoes, diced
  • 1 can (16 ounces) butter beans, drained

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, chopped*

"Very nice and tasty recipe. I made some revisions by adding herbs. I also re-ordered the sequence for adding vegetables. But, its still a very nice basic recipe!"
