{Easy Chicken Chili}

With Thanksgiving being next weekend (Gasp) I really should be focused on sharing Thanksgiving inspired dishes with you... but I am sometimes a procrastinator, and the weather has turned bitterly cold (well colder then it has been)... so I thought it would be best to share this delicious White Chicken Chili recipe with you!

I am guilty of making chili once a week in the winter time, so to me I can never have to many delicious recipes to circulate and choose from.

I love this recipe because big chunks of chicken are subbed in for ground turkey/chicken, and the beans help make the chili extra thick!  I add lots and lots of veggies for added bulk and amped up the spice with a  jalapeno, omit if you would like a milder chili!  This chili really does get better with time which means this chili makes perfect leftovers!  Round out the meal with a salad, crackers or crusty bread for dipping and shredded cheese for some melty goodness!  You could even serve this chili with your favorite whole grain tortilla chips!
