  • 1 ½ Tbsp shallot-infused olive oil (or oil of choice + ½ tsp onion powder + ½ tsp garlic powder)
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 (15 oz) cans white beans, drained and rinsed (such as cannellini or great northern)
  • 1 (4 oz) can diced green chilies
  • 1 (~15 oz) jar salsa verde (or: 2 cups your favorite salsa)
  • 6 cups vegetable stock, unsalted
  • 1 block frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 (~8 oz) bag vegan pepper jack shreds (or regular shredded pepper jack for non-vegan)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • tortilla chips
  • vegan cheddar jack shreds (or: regular shredded cheddar jack for non-vegan)
  • fresh jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • vegan sour cream (or: regular sour cream for non-vegan)
  • fresh lime, squeeze
  • fresh cilantro


Slow Cooker


  • Bloom: Add oil, cumin, chili powder, and paprika to slow cooker and set on high. Mix spices into oil. Allow spices and oil to heat while gathering the rest of the ingredients.
  • Combine: Add the beans, green chilies, salsa verde, and vegetable stock to the pot. Then, add bag of cheese and gently set block of chopped spinach on top (Note: do not mix spinach into the soup, allow to sit on top of cheese).
  • Cook: Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-8 hours.
  • Top: Stir, portion, add desired toppings, and serve!


  • In a pinch, you can add spices and oil at the same time as the other ingredients. I add spices and oil first for extra flavor.
