I’ve got the perfect weekend meal for you with this White Chicken Chili! I know there are tons of recipes already out there for white chicken chili, but I’ve made this one numerous times and thought it was worthy of a blog post. My blog, my rules ;). This recipe couldn’t be easier – dump all the ingredients in a dutch oven, let it simmer until your beans are cooked, then serve it up. Voila! Leftovers are delicious too. I love the addition of the green enchilada sauce in this recipe. It adds so much flavor! You can adjust the spice level to your preference, 1/2 tsp of cayenne will give you a very mild chili. Feel free to add more! I would have, but I was serving this to people who think poblanos are spicy…#notevenjoking haha. Enjoy!
