Spruce up chili by giving it some spice and making it light! This version is so comforting and delicious!
My day has involved: riding down the Lazy River with my water-loving oldest boy on a giant blue inner tube, comforting my youngest boy because of his aversion to waterparks and anything relating to a single drop of water, saying goodbye to my bestest pal and her children after a fun weekend together, packing for a week-long trip that begins on Tuesday, preparing for a long day of work tomorrow and dealing with a very-overly-tired-and-waterparked-out boy and his challenging behavior. Now the boys are in bed as I sit waiting for Dan to arrive home from work so we can watch the premiere of Walking Dead! I am beyond excited!
In the meantime, I will share this delightful white chili recipe with all of you! It is such a perfect time to throw chili ingredients into your crock pot to make your home smell wonderful and your tummies happy. I hope you enjoy this one!
