Spring has sprung, and we are ready to give our recipe roster a refresh. As the days get longer and warmer, we're eschewing heavy comfort food recipes and those hearty soups that make us want to hibernate. Instead, we're looking to light, easy recipes that make us feel refreshed and put a little pep in our step. Here, this white chicken chili recipe does just the trick.
We all love a good chili con carne, but this beautiful white chicken chili has all the hearty beans and protein, with a lighter flavour. It's perfect for those warm spring days, and the cold, grey ones, too.
Ground cumin, oregano and salsa verde give this white chicken chili recipe its delicious flavour. Meanwhile, navy beans are a great source of protein, along with vitamin C and iron. Throw in some sautéed chicken and plenty of Monterey Jack cheese and you've got a protein-packed, flavourful lunch or dinner.
If you like to turn up the heat, add some sliced jalapeños and chopped cilantro to this white chicken chili recipe at the very end for a spicy kick.
