Last night, I decided I wanted to make Jenna’s (originally from Beth) white chicken chili.

But there was a problem. I wanted to make it right then and there.

It was 10pm. Long past my bedtime. I didn’t have half the ingredients. Mr. How Sweet had taken a nap which turned into REM sleep on the couch beginning at 6pm. I didn’t care. I needed to make it.

No, I didn’t go to the store or do anything wacky like make chili at midnight on a “school” night. But I did lay awake thinking about it and memorizing the recipe from my blackberry while I laid in bed. It kept me up all night. I’m a foodie freak.


Obviously, dinner tonight was not a difficult decision.

You have got to try this chili. Not only did the house smell amazing, but I couldn’t keep my spoon out of it. You can find the recipe here.


Then I topped it with smoked gouda, cheddar and gruyere. My life is complete.

The end.

    “Not only did the house smell amazing, but I could keep my spoon out of it.” You COULD or you couldn’t?! Chili sounds amazing.

    yummmm. this one’s getting bookmarked. I love your uses of cheese. in everything. it’s one of my main food groups. the irony of life is that i’m also lactose intolerant. but that doesn’t stop me.

    This looks incredible! I make a white chicken chili, but it doesn’t contain the half-n-half and sour cream. I bet the addition of these creamy ingredients makes this recipe “over the top” delicious!

    This is the EXACT recipe I serve to my family! (And guess what? It won the award for Best Chili at our school’s chili cook-off (it’s a fundraiser, and a HUGE deal where we live). So glad you enjoy it and shared it. It is AMAZING! (And the most requested meal from my son, Hudson. In fact, on Tasty Kitchen, it’s actually listed as “Hudson’s White Chicken Chili”)

    SO GLAD YOU SHARED IT! And by the way — I just found your blog from teh Spiced Quinoa Apple Pie Parfait recipe — can’t wait to try it tonight and to check out all the other great stuff you have on your blog.

    this was amazing it turned out more soupy than I expected since I’m used to my mom’s traditional thick red chili. But I’ll definitely be making this one again :D
