A few Tips for this White Chicken Chili:

Wanna make it a little fancy – Garnish it with your favorite toppings – like tortilla strips, cheese, sour cream and cilantro. Then it’s as pretty as it is mouthwatering.

Short Cut Tip – you can use rotisserie chicken . If you do it still tastes great, but the pan drippings when cooking the chicken add depth to the color of the soup and enrich the flavor a little more.  It’s still delish if you want to use that shortcut.

Thank’s Di for sharing this with us!  Soulfully Made friends I know you will LOVE this as much as I adore my friend Di!
