White Bean Chicken Chili

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

I (Marie) have mentioned this White Bean Chicken Chili recipe in videos a few times. As a result, we have had many requests for the recipe so here it is. This White Bean Chicken Chili is a family favorite. It not only tastes good but it is super fast to make on busy evenings. Additionally, this recipe is great for dinner because it uses so many preserved foods from our pantries.

Our families also love to eat tortilla chips and salsa and a neat trick with this chili is that it uses the small chips at the bottom of the bag that are too small to be good salsa scoopers. Plus, I love not having to defrost meat on a busy weeknight.
