What’s For Dinner? White Chicken (or Turkey!) Chili

  • Sharebar

As I mentioned earlier, I’m really trying to limit my grocery purchases this week because our cupboards are overflowing!  So I wanted to come up with a yummy easy meal that wouldn’t require a trip to the grocery store, and this one fit the bill.  (Especially since my neighbor shared Northern Beans from her pantry!) 

This was so yummy and easy, and such a nice treat after the cold rainy days we’ve had way up here in North Alabama this week.  It was also great to enjoy with the abundance of Ritz crackers that have taken over my pantry!   (Aren’t those Snowflake Ritz cute?)  Here’s the recipe . . .


White Chicken Chili


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped optional, we didn’t have one so I skipped this!
  • 2 garlic cloves didn’t have those either, so we substituted with 1 teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • 4 cups chicken broth Publix brand broth is priced at 2/$.98, which would make 4 cups, or Swanson Broth is on Advantage Buy $2, use $0.50/2 Swanson Broth 11/7/2010 SS Insert (exp 1/31/2011), stacked with $.50/1 Swanson Broth , 32 oz, TARGET coupon
