White Chicken Chili with Roasted Peppers

Adriana Torres


This is one of my husband’s favorite recipes year round. I love it too and prefer it over the typical chili made with ground beef. What I love about this recipe (aside from its deliciousness) is that there is no need to use flour in order to thicken the broth. The consistency of chili is obtained by blending a portion of the beans with broth and milk and then it simmers on the stove until it thickens. Hope you give this recipe a try.
