White Chicken Chili

270

This easy soup is perfect for a winter cold day. It’s hearty & creamy but without the cream and has a good peppery kick to get your nose running. I am not the biggest fan of beans. They taste bland and dry and not my favorite thing in a chilli. But when you blend them up with a little chicken broth it turns into this creamy smooth sauce. Adding the blended bean mixture to your soup gives it that creaminess without cream or milk. The cumin and chilli spices give it a nice taco like flavor while the jalapeno and poblano peppers give it a nice kick.
