White Chicken Chili with Sausage


image While I love classic chili and my family loves my chili without beans, we also enjoy this White Chicken Chili with Sausage. It’s spicy and bursting with flavor from jalapeños, spices and green chilis—a little spicy but you can cut back on the peppers if you like it milder. I use chicken sausage but regular pork sausage would be fine as well. image White chicken chili has a bit of a Southwestern flavor to it, with cilantro and lime juice adding bright flavor. We like to top the chili with some salsa verde and sour cream. image This recipe for white chicken chili makes a pretty large amount, so it’s great for a game day party, tailgating, or any occasion you want to have a large gathering. I usually make a pot of this chili and share some with friends then put a couple of bags in the freezer for us to enjoy later.
