White Chicken Chili

I love this wonderful chili. It is so simple to put together, especially if you use a rotisserie chicken, you can toss this together in just a few minutes. It so satisfying and filling. Not to mention how delicious the flavors combine for a comforting meal.

  • Late morning for me, as Emma’s school has a delayed opening and Lily’s pre-school is closed because of terrible icing here. But finally catching up a bit and love white chicken chili. I have tried usually the crockpot for it, but pinning your recipe to try it without now. Cannot wait to make this one now. Thanks Carrie and hoping you are having a great day so far!!

    This looks and sounds so comforting and delicious. I love all the spices in it. It sounds like it truly taste like chili but healthier with the beans and chicken.

    Many Blessings,
