Green Enchilada White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili is one of those dishes that just about anyone can enjoy! With only a few essential ingredients, this is one of the easiest meals to make on a busy weeknight. Chicken, stock, chiles, and spices are basically all you need for a spicy bowl of Green Enchilada White Chicken Chili. We like to add extra beans in order to make the dish hearty enough to fill up everyone at the table. It’s not necessary to use three different kinds of beans, but it’s not nearly as fun either! Oversized Butter Beans combined with creamy Cannellini and Navy Beans are the perfect combination to add both bulk and fiber to the dish. A last minute addition of sour cream adds a touch of tanginess that just brightens up the dish a little bit. Did we mention that this tastes great served with tortilla chips as well? YUM! Eat more chili stuff and stay fabulous!
