The other day we had a huge dilemma in front of us. Do we do yard work or make some chicken and white bean chili. Well I guess it wasnt a huge dilemma but when the yard is surrounded by oak trees and weve spent most of this fall picking up buckets of acorns and now that its getting cold and the leaves (those millions of leaves) are falling there is a lot of work in front of us. Yes its leaf raking season! Hey, dont get me wrong we love our house and where we live. But I really am starting to get a true dislike for oak trees!! Haha.

Hey its 40 degrees outside and only about half the leaves have fallen from the trees. So do we rake the leaves now or do we go inside and make something that will warm us up from head to toe. We decided the leaves can wait. I mean Mother nature dropped them there maybe she will blow them away. And we dont want to fill up the landfill with our leaves!!! Plus, in a few weeks they will be covered by the snow. Just kidding we will see if we can hire someone to help us move these leaves to our compost pile!

Chicken and White Bean Chili with Anaheim Peppers

Chicken and white bean Chili with Anaheim peppers (or Hatch chiles) is so easy to make. I know white beans might sound boring. Let me reassure you this is not a boring white bean chili there so many flavors and just a little bit of spicy.

Chicken and White Bean Chili

We used dry beans in this recipe because we had time. The great thing about this recipe you can swap out the dry ingredients with caned beans. Just use what you have on hand. We did a mixture of navy beans and Cannellini beans because thats what we had in the house. The great thing about this recipe is you can swap the ingredients for what you have in the pantry. So if you have great northern, navy, Cannellini, and baby lima beans in your pantry they will work great. Using the two different types of beans is fun with flavors and the different shapes and textures.

One of the best parts of this soup besides the great flavor and the ease to make. If you are on Weight Watchers this is only ONE (1) Point per serving. Plus, the serving sizes are big!!!!!
