Happy hump day! We are sharing anew kinda lighter chili for you today. This one is a recipe for Spicy White Bean Chili with Shredded Chicken. The perfect cozy chili for those cold nights, super filling without being grossly full if you know what I mean. Also, this recipe reheats so well, so make extra to freeze. I love this soup with a good bread to soak up all the broth at the bottom of the bowl. Isn’t that just the best? Anyway, I love this soup, and I hope you do too. :) yay comfort food!

    I love the look of that charred corn, it’s so cute (and delicious)! I also love shredded chicken in, well, everything! Sounds like a great chili.

    Why oh why don’t you embed photos of the dish on the save/print feature???? So frustrating. I never use the feature just because there is no image associated. At least set it up to give us the option. Pretty please?

    This turned out amazing. Had to use frozen corn due to the crazy price of corn in the winter, but I ended up turning the cast iron on high to char the corn up fast. Still came out great. I originally thought this recipe would be too spicy for my kids and baby tongued mother in law due to the spices and peppers, but it came out with a manageable heat that wasn’t too overwhelming. Thanks for the awesome recipe.

    looking forward to trying this … Trader Joes has roasted corn in the frozen vegetables section that would make this an easy chili to cook!
