During the cold of winter, there's nothing better to cuddle up on the couch with besides a good bowl of chili or soup. This white chili is no surprise, the flavors are complex, but warming and definitely a hit among the masses! —mtlabor

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. In a dutch oven, under medium high heat, heat up the oil and saute the onions until soft, about 5 minutes. Then add in garlic and stir until fragrant, a minute or two.
  2. Stir in tomatillos, tomatoes, and jalapeño. Cook for another 5 minutes so tomatillos can soften.
  3. Add chicken stock, green chilies, chicken, oregano, cumin, beans, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer until ready to serve, stirring occasionally. I let mine sit for about 30-45 minutes to let the flavors really meld together.
  4. Ladle into soup bowls and garnish the the tortilla chips and cheddar cheese.
