Nothing warms you up on a cold night like a warm bowl of chili. If beef chili just isn't your thing, this white chicken chili is sure to hit the spot. Green chiles are tempered with Cheddar cheese and sour cream but overall , this is a very mild chili. Add a jalapeño or serrano pepper to heighten the heat.
