White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili Recipe
There are those recipes that you just want to make over and over again, am I right? I’m always happy when fall comes around and soup season starts so I can make this white chicken chili.  My friend Lindsay gave me the recipe and after a teeny bit of tweaking it is one of our all time favorite soups.

 Winter has arrived here in Kansas City, after spending 4 winters in Rhode Island I don’t find the KC winter to be all that bad.  Don’t get me wrong we have bitter days but we get breaks here and there like tomorrow it is supposed to be in the 50’s! The colder temps give me the perfect excuse to make soup- comfort food at its best!

This recipe is so easy and so fast.  If I forget that I invited the missionaries over for dinner or I need to take a meal to friends this recipe is in my top 3 go to dishes. It’s fool proof served with chips or rolls and will make you happy that it’s winter, for the dinner hour at least. 🙂

I have made this recipe so many times now, I hardly need the bookmark any more! It's the quintessential comfort food for horrible cold, wet autumn evenings. Tonight we're having it with cornbread muffins to sop up the lovely creamy-tangy juices. Often we have it with basmati rice. We always keep plain tortilla chips in the house, and they go with this so well :) Thanks so much for sharing!
