There’s just something about windy chilly fall days!!!

It’s truly my favorite time of year!

Our temps have been in the 60’s and dinner time has had me in the mood for my ” first of the season” pot of chili White Bean Chicken Chili that is!!

This one is a favorite around our house!

It’s such an easy recipe, the only problem I have with it is, it’s never quite enough!

You may want to double the recipe, we only get about 5 servings out of one batch – and this is something that is DEFINITELY good left over!

  11. My family LOVES White Bean Chicken Chili! I usually make a triple batch and freeze it for super fast suppers during our hectic basketball season. My recipe is very similar to yours but without the cream. Now I am thinking that cream makes everything taste better so I might just have to try that! Thanks.

  23. I’d have to say that chili is always my “go to” cool day dish. It’s especially wonderful because it’s my husband’s specialty so I don’t have to make it!! I’m going to send him this link hoping he gets inspired.
