I’m pretty sure I would eat chili all winter long if my family would let me.

To me, it’s like coffee. It’s an experience. I not only LOVE the taste of coffee….but I like the comfort. I love the mug I drink it out of. I love the warmth, the sitting with a cup and wrapping myself in a blanket. I love the smell of coffee brewing, because I know what’s to come! I love the whole experience of drinking coffee.

That’s how I feel about chili. I love the smell of chili cooking. The warmth of a bowl and the flavors. It’s true comfort food in my book.

Am I totally out of my mind? Can anyone relate?

Back to the chili….

Today’s version is a white chicken chili. It’s low fat and delicious! Perfect if you want a cup of comfort food, but don’t want to sacrifice your healthy eating habits!

To start, grab your favorite pot, I use a dutch oven.Cut your chicken into small, bite sized pieces and you’ll want to cook it in the dutch oven with a little olive oil until it browns. Once browned, add the remaining ingredients for your soup, cover it all up and simmer for about an hour. Before serving, add the milk and lime juice and heat on medium until hot! Oh my heavens, the aroma that fills your house will be amazing!

When you’re ready to serve, sprinkle with a just a touch of monterey jack cheese, a dollop of plain greek yogurt (to keep it healthy) and a sprig of parsley for color (we eat with our eyes first)! ENJOY your chili experience!

One more tip. This dinner can totally be made in the crock pot too! Add everything into your slow cooker, except the milk and lime juice. Heat on low for 6 hours. Before serving, add milk and lime juice and allow to heat (about 20 minutes). Serve and enjoy!!
