This week for Dinner- White chicken chili

I grew up on my mothers ground beef chili and loved it.  But a few years ago at a church chili cook-off I tasted this amazing chili!  It's perfect for me, it has great flavor, some wonderful spices, but not too hot and is creamy, which I'm always partial too.  Lucky for me my husband and 3 oldest also like spicy food.  Only my youngest doesn't like all the spicy food.  My poor in laws!  They are so kind and generous I'm not sure if they like spicy food or not, they wouldn't never tell me.  I guess the fact that my Mother in law had some the next day for left overs means she liked it.

Anyway I've been making this chili for 4 years now and it's one of my absolute favorites. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
