The best part, other than the incredible taste, is this dish requires very little prep work, and it reheats from the fridge or freezer extremely well. In fact, I made a big batch of this specifically for the freezer recently. Try this with some shredded cheese and avocado on top, or eat it as-is; it's a delicious fall comfort food either way!

Yes, I'm sharing two chili recipes in a row. I can't help it, this white chicken chili is so creamy and delicious, I just had to share as soon as possible. I had seen the concept of white chicken chili online here and there, and decided that I needed to make a bit batch of it, immediately. I am so glad I did; the family devoured it for dinner! I have to admit, I wasn't entirely surprised - who could resist chicken, beans, and corn smothered in creamy chili sauce? We dipped fresh bread to sop up all that sauce and it was so, so good.

I’ve been in the mood for white chicken chili for a while. This sounds great. I’ll have to change the type of beans since I really can’t stand kidney beans, but navy and great northern would be awesome.
