White Chili w/ Ground Chicken

Ground chicken and cannellini beans are the vessels for this flavorful bowl of goodness. This white chili is not spicy, rather it is packed with flavors of mild chili peppers. This chili is surprisingly light as most of the creaminess comes from the beans. At under $1.00 per serving it is an affordable and flavorful meal.
