See how big that pot is? We had full intentions on freezing some for later, but loved this soup to pieces and ended up eating it day and night, finishing the whole pot in five days.

SO.MUCH.FLAVOR.

    This looks so good! I normally use pintos in my chili since they’re so creamy, but I’m thinking I need to try out some white beans now!

    why is it that all delicious soups begin with bacon???? I was actually drawn into this post because that chunk of cheese looked unusual-like one I’ve never seen before.

    hahahahaha…five days? What took you so long? Glad you liked it so much! Can you believe how much flavor is packed in so few ingredients. The smoky trinity of flavor: bacon, chipotle chile, smoked paprika. Dab a little behind your ears and your man will do pretty much anything you ask. ;)

    As amazing as that sounds, and it DOES sound fantastic, your blog is called “How Sweet It Is”. I’m just saying. I keep scrolling down looking for the dessert part of this, but all I keep finding are comments. In order to fill the hole in my sweet tooth I just had some crappy Snickers ice cream with very good chocolate sauce on top. I felt so bad for the chocolate sauce. Come on! At least give me a link to one of your desserts at the end of the dinner posts! Arrrgggghhh!

    Sincerely,
    Suffering With Snickers

      Haha sorry to burst your bubble but my blog is called ‘how sweet it is’ because of the song – not because of dessert. ;) more on that in my about section!

        In that case, I guess I’d invest in some better ice cream. =)

    After seeing this recipe last week, I made this chili on Sunday. It is THE BEST chicken chili I’ve ever made. I’m throwing all my other chicken chili recipes out…this will be my go to recipe from now on. I used a good applewood smoked bacon. Instead of using the rotisserie chicken, I put 2 bone-in skin-on chicken breasts and 4 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs in the pot to cook for 30 minutes. Then removed them and shredded the meat to put back in the chili. Fantastic and freezes great. Thank you so much for this recipe!!

    Your chicken chili looks fantastic! Do the flavours get better over time? That is, it is even better the second day?

    Now, that is like no white bean chicken chili I’ve EVER had. You should have seen the faces (and noises) my husband was making yesterday at dinner….not appropriate at all :) But…don’t you just love when that happens? Anyway, back to the chili…it’s not only the best soup I’ve had, but the best chili…and the best dish with white beans. Period. I can’t get over it.
