White Chicken Chili



My friend, Cassie, gave me this White Chicken Chili recipe one night and I have to tell you it was a huge hit! We loved it. The flavors are fantastic. We loved the little kick from the green chilis and verde salsa with the pop of sweet from the corn. This is a new staple in our home and since it’s pouring down snow right now I figured it was a great day to post this.
I did half the recipe since we were using the leftovers from the roasted chicken the night before, but I totally wish I had made the full batch so I could eat more leftovers or freeze it for another night. It was so stinkin’ good!

What Is White Chili?

White chili is made with white beans, chicken (sometimes pork), and mild green chiles.


Are Beans Good For You?

Beans  are a rich source of fiber and B vitamins. 

Beans are a great replacement for meat as a source of vegetarian protein.

Beans have many health benefits, including reducing cholesterol, decreasing blood sugar levels and increasing healthy gut bacteria.


Can You Freeze Chili?

You can freeze left over chili for up to 6 months.

Freeze chili in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
