Tips for Making White Chicken Chili
This chili is pretty versatile, so feel free to experiment with the ingredients. If you don’t like spice, you can leave out the cayenne pepper. And if you want a little more heat, you can add more jalapeno peppers to the top of your chili.
If you’re short on time, you can use rotisserie chicken in this recipe. Just shred the chicken and add it to the chili at the end.
This chili is even better the next day, so make a big batch and enjoy leftovers all week long.
White Chicken Chili is a great meal to freeze for later. Just place individual servings in freezer-safe containers and store in the freezer for up to three months. When you’re ready to eat, thaw the chili in the refrigerator and reheat on the stove.
