White Chili

Food, Random / Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

White Chili is up next in the Autumn Soup Series by Martha. This is a fun twist to the average brown/beef chili. It seems more elegant and creamier. I really like the taste of the white northern beans combined with the chicken.

Here is the recipe below as shared by Martha. Mine came out a little different because I failed to read the recipe all the way through before just dumping everything into the crock pot, oops! It still tasted great but I’d like to go back and see if they chicken has more flavor if I saute it with the onion and garlic (which I also didn’t get to add b/c of a toddler who doesn’t believe in naps!). I also didn’t put in as much cheese as too much cheese doesn’t settle with our tummies very well. Have you ever had White Chili? What are some of your favorite White Chili recipes?
