Spicy White Chili

Green chiles, fragrant garlic, and the perfect blend of herbs and spices lend just the right amount of heat and flavor to this delicate yet satisfying white chili. Short on time? Take advantage of your supermarket deli and use a deli rotisserie chicken. Simply shred the meat with your fingers or two forks while the rest of the ingredients simmer.
