White Bean Chili

Updated: Jan 27, 2021

We all know those game birds can be a little skimpy. This recipe will allow you to feed the family with your hens or roosters ... even if you only got one ;) A yummy twist on traditional chili that is light, flavorful and perfect for fall.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes (stove top) 4-6 hours (slow cooker)
