White Chicken Chili

Shauna Evans


I love savory soups, stews, and chili--especially when the weather turns cold. This is a savory chili packed with flavor and a little kick. This is the perfect comfort food and game day recipe. A one bowl dish that satisfies hungry football fans.

We used grilled chicken and loved the way this chili turned out. With a lighter, more soup-like consistency this recipe is a nice alternative to heavier meat chilies. The Test Kitchen
