A hearty white chicken chili full of tender chicken, beans, and green chilies.
I love rainstorms!! Let me clarify. I love being inside a house during rainstorms!! I’m perfectly fine being stuck inside while it’s cloudy and pouring outside. It’s even better when it’s a thunderstorm! As long as the power doesn’t go out. Then I’m not so perfectly fine. Keeping the children cooped up inside for a whole day and no DVD player to entertain them after I’m exhausted of checkers and Uno?! The horrors.
One reason why I love cold rainy days, besides being able to stay inside and wear my pajamas all day, is because it’s the perfect weather to make a scrumptious chili! My favorite chili of the moment is to make a white chicken chili. This chili is so full of flavor. It’s bursting with green chilies, jalapeno, onion, garlic, and cumin. A chili with cumin in it!? It’s gotta be good right?
Plus it’s the perfect chili to put toppings on. I love anything I can top with cilantro, sour cream, cheese, and salsa. Even though it was cold and raining outside, the inside of the house smelled heavenly with this cooking all day. The best part is this meal is easy to make, and you can make it in a pot on the stove or in your crockpot. Simple, easy, smells good, tastes good, and it keeps you warm on those cold days. Perfect rainy day food.
You’ll see that one of the cans of beans is processed in this recipe, and that’s a step you can always leave out. The reason that I do this is to create extra thickness to the chili without using cornmeal.
Next rainy day give this white chicken chili a try!
