Hi there, Ameera here!
We totally fell in love with this nod to a classic white chili. Who doesn’t love a great chili, especially on a cold winter day or night? It’s like a quintessential cold day dish – yum!
I love the simple fact that it is fun and different, and of course, I also love that it tastes great too!

It wasn’t too difficult creating a great white bean chili, but we couldn’t resist adding some potatoes to give it a little extra “something-something,” and it certainly did give it a little extra heartiness!
The jalapeños and green chilies coupled with just the right amount of spice made for a bowl of deliciousness that had us all doing a happy dance!

Hi! Robin here.
I love chili! Anything with Southwestern seasoning is my jam. I adore those spice blends, so when Monkey wanted to make a White Bean Chili, I was all for it.
I love crushing baked corn tortillas into this flavorful dish. Back in the day, I used to throw Fritos into my chili. I don’t miss that at all when I can use wholesome, tasty corn tortillas.
We hope you give this deliciousness a try! We just know you are going to love it!
