White Chicken Chili

I came across this recipe for White Chicken Chili fourteen years ago in a church ward cookbook. The cookbook was from a ward Dave and I were in when we first got married. Dave and I loved this recipe so much that I made it quite a bit. When ever we had a party, the White Chicken Chili usually made an appearance.

I hadn’t  made this chili for a few years. Dave recently started asking me to make it again. When I finally did make it again, I remembered why I loved it so much. It is packed with flavor and is so creamy! It is hard to stop with one bowl.

So I am passing this soul warming chili recipe on to you in hope that your family can enjoy it as much as my family has!

With love from my kitchen to yours,
