White Chicken Chili Recipe
By Thursday, most of the fresh fruits and vegetables I’ve purchased are either gone or past the point where they’re usable. I hate food waste but it’s next to impossible to keep a vegetable you buy on Sunday fresh until the following Saturday. I’m generally stressed out from a busy week and want a quick, healthy meal.
The solution is not takeout … it’s your Cantry. You can make nutritious, fresh and flavorful meals quickly and easily thanks to the canned foods in your pantry. February is National Canned Food Month so now is the perfect time to share this recipe with you.
Is white chicken chili still chili?
Yes, white chicken chili is indeed still considered chili. While it differs from traditional chili by using white beans and chicken instead of red beans and beef, the core concept—a hearty, spicy, slow-cooked stew—remains the same.
What type of beans to use in white chili
I often make traditional chili with canned tomatoes but this is perfect for those days that I want something different. This White Chicken Chili Recipe with Sour Cream uses Goya Cannellini Beans which you may also know as Alubias. This is a very easy recipe that is ready in just 30 minutes. Canned foods make homemade easy.
