This white bean chicken chili recipe was passed down from a friend, and now it is one of our favorites! It's great to make whenever there is leftover chicken or turkey around. We hope for colder weather in California just so we can make this soup. You can substitute additional diced tomatoes for the tomatillos. If you would like the soup to be spicier, you can add some red chili flakes or salsa. Serve with these toppings for people to choose from: limes, cilantro, cheese, avocado, sour cream, and tortilla chips.
