white chicken chili

Now that the weather is getting colder outside, there is nothing better to warm you up than a bowl of delicious white chicken chili.  My delish and skinny chili dish is perfect for those cold winter days or when you’re serving a large group, better yet, when you’re serving a large group on a cold winter day! If you are looking for a way to kick the spice up in this chili, sub in 4 oz chopped jalapenos in place of the green chiles! If you need an easy shredded chicken recipe, try my Skinny Shredded Chicken! I like to make a whole batch of it in the slow cooker on Sundays, and then freeze it and use it throughout the week for quick dinners!
