White Chicken Chili | Indianapolis Food Blogger

We made it. Soup season is here. As I stated in an earlier post it is literally the season I live for. Soups, Chili’s, Stews I’m here for them all. I’m really excited about the recipe I’m sharing here today. White Chicken Chili!

Over the course of the next few months, I’ve partnered with Hurst’s Beans to share some tasty recipes with you. I’m so excited about this partnership! They have a HUGE line of products, from White Beans to Black Beans to Lentils, all with seasoning packets to make your life easier! Because bland food won’t prosper right? Right. Hurst’s has us covered on the bean front. 

Did you know that the Hurst’s HamBeens Brand has been family owned and operated in Indianapolis since 1938? That is a rich history of good eats. Locally loved and great products? Sign me right up. Little did I know that Hurst’s is the brand my dad has used for years in our family. He made 15 bean soup often. I never knew that was the REAL same of the recipe.  Anywho, I’m sharing a White Chicken Chili Recipe with you today. It’s one my mom has made for years with a little twist on it from me. It’s a no soak recipe. Allow your stove to do the work. Rinse, and GO!
