White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili – This recipe comes from Gourmet magazine – actually, an advertisement within the magazine!! And it is very good. It is similar to a chicken chowder, but still yummy on a fall day.

Even if it is 85 degrees outside!! It is hearty, but not too heavy. I did not use the cheese called for, but it was still delish! Sorry about the craptastic photo. I will try to retake tomorrow!!
