I love chili, and I have always believed that white chili was not *real* chili. I mean, it’s white. It doesn’t have beef, there are no black beans, that’s not really chili, right? Well, I recently had my first bowl of white bean chili. Wow. I had no idea what I had been missing. I mean, really, I should have known. I love tomatillos, I almost prefer tomatillio salsa over red salsa. I love chicken chili verde. It’s only natural that I would love white chili. So why have I wanted so long to give this dish a try? Just pure stubbornness I guess.
So what exactly is white chili? It is a combination of tangy tomatillos, spicy peppers, fragrant garlic and onions, and smoky cumin. Mixed together with turkey, white beans and corn, it makes for one delicious dish. So if you have never tried white chili, you should. As a bonus, this chili gets better and better each day. We ate it for four nights, and I swear each night it tasted better than the last!!
