Ohhhh the weather outside is frightful. Atlanta traffic was delightful! What is better to cuddle up inside with than chili? White chili, that’s what! Southerners love their butter and cream. Right, Paula? (and BREAD BOWLS!)
Short and sweet– This recipe is just about as easy as it gets. Some cream, chicken, butter, cheese; the staples, ya know. Throw them in a pot and you have dinner!
This is a recipe that was handed down my my mum. I promise you will be craving it every time frost hits the ground!
I decided to perk this up with a few extra carbs (for winter warmth, of course!), so a bread bowl was definitely the way to go for me.
This is the perfect cold weather pick-me-up. Curl up with a warm blanket and some of this creamy chili, and you’re set for the night!
