Tips For White Chicken Chili
One of my favorite tips for this is to use leftover, or even rotisserie chicken to make it easier and faster.
Be careful when purchasing green chilis. They do come in different heat levels so be sure to grab the right one for your family.
Toppings take your bowl to the next level. Jalapenos, sour cream, avocado, shredded cheese, cilantro and tortilla strips are what we like to use.
