White Chicken Chilli

Serves 6 Prep Time Unknown  Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:

This recipe originally appeared in the Tenina's America cookbook, which is still available HERE. You need to get onto that book, it is full of deliciousness such as this one! And it has never been cheaper to purchase and comes with an e-version for free!

This chilli is not so much white in colour, rather it uses chicken in the place of beef and white beans instead of black or kidney beans. Whatever colour yours ends up (depending largely on herbs used) it is a crowd pleaser. Plus, you can make it go a lot further by increasing the volume of everything you serve with it.

We love our chilli with Fried Tortilla Strips, loads of shredded cabbage, avocado slices, cheese, herbs, tomatoes...grilled corn would also be amazing. Let your imagination run wild and whip up a salad to serve on top. The perfect meal.
