Paleo White Chicken Chili

Paleo White Chicken Chili

 

Here in the Midwest, summer seems to desperately be hanging on.  Temperatures have dropped a bit, but it’s still huuuumid.  And we know that nothing says fall like sweating in your leggings and scarf.

But I’ve basically decided that if I believe hard enough that it’s fall, fall will magically arrive in all it’s magical glory.  Sort of a “I think,therefore I am” thing.  

Until then, I’m enjoying this Paleo, allergen friendly version of White Chicken Chili.  It’s perfect to whip up on a cool day (or one you believe should be cool), cuddle up on the couch, and watch Football.
