Award Winning White Chicken Chili

Total Time

If you like a thick white chili with a bit of "afterburn", then try this. I started out with a few other recipes, and have tweaked this to our family's taste. I submitted this recipe for a chili cookoff at work and came in 3rd place! (the other 2 winners were traditional red chili with beef).

  1. In a stock pot, add diced onion and olive oil. Saute until clear.
