White chicken chili with sweet potatoes is a great, hearty chili recipe that will help get you through these last few weeks of winter.

Don’t forget your Great Northern beans. Once all of your ingredients are prepped and in the stockpot, leave them to cook for 25-30 minutes, then serve immediately. Top it off with some sour cream and cilantro leaves. This chili recipe makes being snowed in so much more enjoyable.

This recipe guarantees you will get a variety of meat, beans and flavor in every spoonful. It calls for three, yes three pounds of chicken and a whole lot of beans.

Season with salt, pepper and a bit of lime juice and don’t forget the cornbread!
