White Chicken Chili with Salsa Verde
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This is an amazing recipe - It's no wonder it was a big winner for Reta! I especially enjoyed the salsa. Believe it or not, I had never cooked with tomatillos prior to this... Now I'm referring to them as “the Granny Smith of tomatoes”. The salsa is award-worthy in and of itself, and when paired with the bean soup it is simply unbelievable.
