White Chicken Chili ~ creamy, loaded with tender chicken, white beans, corn and green chilies. Topped off with sliced avocado, extra cheese, tortilla strips and sour cream.

As recipes go, this one doesn’t get any easier. Just load the ingredients into your slow cooker then while you’re doing whatever it is you do that brings home the bacon . . . WAH BAM! Thick, creamy, delicious chili loaded with tender chicken, white beans, corn and green chilies.

Of course, what starts as simple doesn’t have to stay that way. Feel free to dress it up with as many garnishes as you like, including a big dollop of fresh guacamole. 

Make a batch on Tuesday. Eat leftovers on Wednesday (it’s even better reheated). If you’re lucky, there’ll be enough to freeze an individual container for lunch one day when there’s “nothing in the fridge”.

Many of us are kicking off 2018 with resolutions to exercise more, spend less, eat a bit better ~ or some combination. I got a Fitbit for Christmas that’s become an appendage of  my wrist so you can probably guess where my New Year’s resolution falls: at least 10,000 steps each day. I had no idea how sedentary I’d become but ‘friendly reminders’ to move keep me on track.

Since I’m moving more, I’m also *trying* to eat a little healthier while still enjoying comfort food, especially now that we’re in the middle of a death grip of cold, so if a cold salad is what you’re looking for today, feel free to click out.

Coming up I’ll still be sharing lots of new simple comfort any-night meals as well as a delicious Beef Ragu that’ll be the Sunday dinner of your dreams. It’s all about balance.

If you’re thinking you’ve seen this recipe before ~ you have ~ I’ve updated the photos on this classic, crowd pleasing favorite because it’s fall and whether you’re a fan or not, it’s football season and friends, in my book, those two go together like peanut butter and jelly. 

You don’t have to like football to enjoy all the amazing food people create when they gather to watch a game or three. Football food is almost a competitive sport in itself.
