Easy & Healthy White Chicken Chili

The new year calls for a healthy reset, and this white chicken chili hit the spot and helped to heat up the cold winter night! Ready in under 40 minutes, this easy & healthy chili is a great fresh reset to the new year. Hearty and healthy, I was please to satisfy even the colossal appetites in my kitchen. I always like to prepare one BIG pot of chili so that we have leftovers to freeze or eat for lunch the same week. And this recipe serves 16, and can last 3-4 days in and airtight container in the refrigerator. Lunch this week will be delicious! Did you know that chili did not originate in Mexico?

Give it a try! Let me know what you think.
