Best Ever Creamy White Chicken Chili Recipe

Creamy White Chicken Chili | In Honor of Design Creamy White Chicken Chili Recipe

This is a long standing traditional favorite in my family during halloween week! Since it was my mother’s recipe, I have to vote that it is the best ever creamy white chicken chili recipe;) Such a good comfort food option that you can make in your crockpot or over stove top. 

Ingredients:
1 lb. shredded cooked chicken (I sometimes use a rotisserie chicken for shortcuts)
6 c. chicken broth (homemade chicken broth is really nutrient rich!)
1/2 Onion chopped
1 Can Green Chiles
2 Garlic minced cloves
2 Cans Cannellini Beans
1/2 c. Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 c. Sour Cream
1 c. Shredded Monterrey Jack Cheese
Salt & Pepper
1/4 t. Cayenne Pepper
1/2 t. Cumin
1/4 t. Oregano

Directions:
In a large sauce pot, simmer the chopped onion and shredded chicken until onions are clear.
Add minced garlic cloves and green chiles and saute a few more minutes. Salt and pepper.
Pour in chicken broth and canellini beans and seasonings. Bring to a low boil to let the flavors simmer as long as you prefer.
Stir in heavy cream, sour cream, and shredded cheese until melted.
Serve with a dash of oregano and pinch of shredded cheese on top.
Pass out from a food coma afterwards;)

I hope you enjoy this! Let me know if you have any questions in the comment section and I will be sure to reply!

P.S. For dessert how about Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies or Brown Bag Apple Pie? Might as well..;)

The other side of fear.

I have been having trouble sleeping lately.

Anxiety, worry, doubt. It’s a triple beast. They can creep up and rule your life if you aren’t careful to battle them head on. And when any of these start to rear their ugly heads, I know something must be off kilter within me.

Fear can prevent your from loving without hesitation, it can prevent you from conquering old habits, it can prevent you from listening to your gut, and ultimately can rob you of some of the best things life has to offer. Joy, truth, authenticity…the fruits of a life of courage. I seek this with fervor, but don’t always win. 

Yesterday I read a first hand account from my friend caring for Ebola patients in Liberia. She knows day in and day out that her own life is at risk, but she CHOSE to serve. She chose to help the dying exit this life with someone by their side reminding them that they matter. She is a warrior in my eyes. She looks fear in the face and walks through it’s shadow to the other side of freedom. Freedom to LIVE as you were created to, and to LOVE without conditions.

I wanted to share this quote with you all that I stumbled on that has made it’s mark on me. I asked Jessica of Coco & Mingo to hand letter it for me as part of a series we are doing for The Brand Market. Isn’s she talented?! You can see the rest of the series here.

Have a fearless and mighty Wednesday friends. Why not?

I have this thing with floors.

After posting some sneak peaks of flooring/rugs on instagram, I was reminded about a few accounts I love that do a fantastic job of stretching the mind’s perspective and challenging you to see your life from different angles. I enjoy every post so thought I should pass it along:)
