Chicken & White Bean Chili

We love all kinds of chili and sometimes it is nice to break out of your traditional ground meat & red bean variety. Whether using leftover chicken or a Rotisserie chicken from the deli, this chili can be pulled together quickly for an easy weeknight dinner.

Nutrition Tip: Besides being a healthy source of dietary fiber, white beans are packed with magnesium that can ward off migraines, prevent muscle cramps, and improve your heart health.
