Weeknight White Chicken Chili

Weeknight White Chicken Chili

 Sometimes it’s easy to fall into a rut of eating the same thing weeknight after weeknight, especially when you’re trying to feed your family healthy, nourishing foods.  I can remember years back when Mike and I first started really watching what we were eating, we would have the same thing every Monday, the same thing every Tuesday, etc.  It was easy to do because I knew they were healthy and low calorie.  After awhile, this got monotonous and we started craving foods that weren’t so good for us because they were easy and different.  That’s what really got me into cooking a few years ago.  I wanted to find foods that felt like we were eating in a restaurant but were healthy, especially once TJ came along.  Nowadays, I’m constantly looking for healthy foods that are delicious but don’t take much time.  This is especially nice on a busy weeknight when we have activities going on or Mike has to work late.

This easy chili only takes about 15 minutes to make and is absolutely delicious.  All you have to do is throw the ingredients in a pot for a few minutes and garnish each bowl.  Easy!
