Why I love this recipe

We first made this creamy white chicken chili recipe when my son was learning how to cook. Each week he would choose a recipe that he wanted to make and I would supervise while he prepared our dinner. We love this down-sized White Chicken Chili recipe so much that it has become a regular in our house ever since.

Try it with these Soft Pretzels or these Raspberry Chocolate Banana Muffins.

is there a substitute for the green chilis?

Hi Kandy, If you want something more mild, use a green bell pepper. If you want more spice, use a jalapeño. Thanks for your question :)

It was a little soupy, but next time I’m going to try not draining the beans & see if that makes a difference. The taste was amazing either way! My husband couldn’t stay away from it! I couldn’t either!
