This white chicken chili recipe is so hearty, creamy and full of your favorite Tex-Mex flavors. It’s absolutely delicious and I dare you to eat just one bowl!
Welcome back to day two of soup week!
Today I’m sharing a family favorite recipe. This white chicken chili is frequently requested by my hubby and my parents when they visit. Ok, so I’m actually re-sharing this recipe, it’s one of the very first recipes I posted when I started this blog over 4 years ago. It’s been on “the list” to re-photograph it for a while. The recipe is just so yummy and the original photos were just so bad, lol! I’ve made the recipe several times over the last few years, but either the lighting was not right or we were just too hungry to stop and take pictures. Finally, I got it done! (The original pics can be seen here and here– check ’em out quick if you’re curious, because they are about to be deleted forever!)
Don’t forget, I am giving away this fabulous 6.5 quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven at the end of the week, so be sure to enter at the bottom of the post!
