This White Chicken Chili combines Great Northern beans, rotisserie chicken, sweet corn, poblano and Anaheim peppers, onions, garlic and a perfect blend of spices into a wholesome soul warming chili. Top with cheese, jalapeno slices and tortilla strips. I love to serve this with Cornbread and Pineapple Margaritas.
