Easy Brunswick Stew

Hey y’all!!  We are getting ready to get hit by another snow storm so I figured I would close out our soup series with a big steamy bowl of Brunswick Stew.  I love this stew, it has a bbqy, tomatoey base filled with shredded chicken, butterbeans and corn.

I am a huge butterbean fan so anytime my grandma made this soup I was in heaven!

This soup is really easy to make, uses pantry/freezer staples and is full of flavor!  It is a little different than your usual soup and I think that is why I enjoy it so much, a little outside the box for some, but for me it has been a family favorite forever simmering away on my grandma’s stove.

And of course the leftovers just get better and better.  I love to eat mine with some buttered saltine crackers and to me that is just the perfect meal!  Tender shredded chicken, creamy butterbeans and that flavorful base that get it’s flavor from onions, garlic and your favorite BBQ sauce perfect for dunking your crackers in.

So if you are about to get hit with yet another snow storm or are just looking for a new soup to fill your mug try my Brunswick Stew and you will be happy you did!!
