The Dove's Nest White Chili

Recipe by bunkie68

This is my favorite soup from a restaurant in Waxahachie, Texas called The Dove's Nest. The recipe comes from the restaurant's cookbook.

My husband and I love White Chili and this recipe is a good one. It has just the right blend of spices without overdoing it. I served it in big bowls over toasted tortilla chips and topped with shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Hearty, filling, and delicious Tex-Mex flavor. Thanks Bunkie.
