Okay, so let’s talk about this chili for a minute.

It’s not particularly photogenic, and in my rush to get this off the photography table and into my mouth, I forgot to garnish it with the additional chopped red onion and shredded cheddar cheese that it really deserves. All that aside, I’m here to tell you that you should absolutely make this Creamy White Chicken Chili.

I first posted this recipe back in 2011, when I’d only been blogging a few months and my photography was even worse than atrocious.  I’m not sure that this updated photo is more than marginally better, but since this chili is one of our favorites, I decided to shoot it again when we ate this yummy, hearty soup for dinner last week.

I was encouraged by some initial fall-like temperatures late in the week and got a little excited: pulling short-sleeve shirts and capri pants out of my closet and replacing them with sweaters and boots and scarves.  We purchased some apple cider, made this cold-weather stew and watched football like the hardcore fall-weather lovers we are.

And…this week we’re back into temperatures in the 80’s.

This Creamy White Chicken Chili is the perfect alternative to the traditional tomato-based soup. Packed with spicy flavors, this hearty stew is the perfect way to warm up on a crisp fall night!

I’m not deterred, though. I’m going to keep making my fall foods {like this Pumpkin Snack Cake —>swiped from my grandma’s recipe box} and will those fall-like temperatures to return.

If you’re bored with traditional beef chili – you definitely need to give this chicken version a try.  And if you’re not into jalapeños, just double up on the green chilies – they add great flavor without the heat!

  1. This recipe is right up my alley! There is nothing better than chili and FB watching!

    I wish the weather would just stay in Fall mode, too. All of the online shopping I’ve been doing needs the weather to be below 70 degrees. :)

  2. LOVE this Ashley, I cannot wait for fall weather

  3. I cannot wait until it cools off so we can eat chili. I love it! Pinned!
