White Bean & Chicken Chili

 This meal was meant for a dinner party, but Old Man Winter had other plans, so instead, my darling husband and I enjoyed it ourselves! I thought at the very least we could share the recipe with you! 

Just a few notes: the tortilla chips were a lot of fun to make, be indulgent and make MORE than what the recipe calls for! James thought that the chip/dip ratio was way off causing us to have a lot of dip left over! Also incorporate whatever you like in your "avocado dip" AKA guacamole, right!? James really, really liked it but I just felt it was missing something, still can't put my finger on it. 

We both really loved the chicken chili, plus it's fun to say "chicken chili" chicken chili
