Creamy White Chili Recipe

creamy white chili recipe 2

If you want a break from the red meat, and like chili, give this Creamy White Chili Recipe a try. This is a simple recipe that doesn’t take long to prepare. I used mild chopped green chilies in this recipe to keep the heat down a little bit, but you can use the hotter version to turn up the heat a little bit if you like a lot of heat.
