White Chicken Chili

This is one of my all time favorite meal. Don't get me wrong, I love regular chili, but there is just something about a chicken chili. Yum! This is Ava's recipe and it takes no time at all to put together.

  5. Erica - I do think this would freeze pretty well. A lot of white chili recipes call for milk, which never freezes very well, but this one doesn't! Just make sure to use an airtight container!
