I've lived in Minnesota my whole life. Winters get brutally cold, with days of below zero temps in a row. All you really want to do is sit in the house and eat or drink something warm.

Chili, soups and stews are a winter staple around here. I could eat soup all year long, but make them the most often from September through April, when the weather is chilly.

Today's chili is delicious! 

We love using chicken breast in any soup. I especially love it paired with the white beans in this recipe. 

This chili isn't thick, more of a soupy texture and it does have some heat from the jalapeno. If you prefer more heat, you could always leave the ribs on the jalapeno before chopping, instead of removing them.

This recipe is budget friendly for a family and it's the easiest to make. If you have leftovers, they'll taste amazing for lunch the next day. 

We love serving this chili with some cornbread or topping with sour cream, chopped raw onion, shredded cheese, sliced green onions and/or tortilla strips!
