I have always loved Ground Beef chili, growing up my dad cooked it often and now during the fall/winter months I make it quite regular. Recently while at the dentist with my son the receptionist was telling me about this Easy White Chili Recipe her husband recently made. Being a big fan of ground beef chili, I didn’t think I would like chili with chicken, but my kids and husband are chicken lovers, so I wanted to give this recipe a try. I was amazed at how delicious it was.
