Colder weather is a constant here (at least for a few more months), so our stoves and slow cookers will soon get even more love. My kids have loved a warm and hearty meal after a day on the mountain; this recipe is no exception.
Here’s a white bean chili recipe that’s so easy to throw together with one pot and a few pantry ingredients. It’s perfect for a game-day lunch, and the leftovers taste even better reheated for meal prep. This chili is mild enough for the whole family to enjoy.
