Chicken Chili Chili Bang Bang !

This is a white chicken chili.

The kids and I watched the movie "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" after we ate our chili, that is how we named it!

This is a very good comfort food chili.

You can add more heat by adding more jalapeno peppers and including the veins and seeds! I printed my mild version here because most people don't like chili as spicy as I do. You can make it as hot as you like!

My grandchildren love this chili and they like it with the corn, sometimes we have made it without the beans.

I hope you try this chili and see just how good it is!
