Wheatless Wednesday: 5 Must Try White Chili Recipes

September 14, 2011

Going into fall, what could be better than curling up by the fire with a warm bowl of chili? Not a huge tomato-and-kidney-bean fan (I tend to have nightshade-plant problems), I tend to stay away from traditional chili recipes, but chili verde/blanca or white chili has always been a favorite. Leave out the chicken for an easy vegetarian option, or substitute turkey, this recipe is great for using up leftovers. Even better, chilis are a great way to familiarize yourself with different types of peppers and Latin ingredients that you may not otherwise use -- like tomatillos. All gluten free & dairy free, these recipes are sure to become a family favorite in no time!
