Fall is Officially Here and White Chicken Chili is on the Menu!


​Happy Tuesday Gang! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Fall baseball is winding down and it certainly was rather “nippy” at the field on Sunday. I was so glad I had all the ingredients on hand to whip together this delicious white chicken chili for our post game dinner while watching the New England Patriots WIN!!

I am super excited to share this recipe with you from New York Times bestselling author , Lisa Leake’s newcookbook, I was lucky to receive a copy of her latest cookbook 100 Days of Real Food, Fast and Fabulous last week and absolutely love it! Lisa asked several bloggers to take a look at her new book, try out a recipe (or 2, as I did) and share with our readers. Needless to say, my family was not disappointed!

I have been following Lisa’s blog for several years and as a Registered Dietitian and mom to 4 active boys, I love her approach to nutrition and health. As you all know, educating people on how to fuel the body with minimally processed food is a passion of mine, but the food has to be tasty and easy to prepare. This is where Lisa comes to the rescue! Her recipes are simple yet delicious and have becomes staples in our house! I have been making her chocolate chip cookies for years and the boys absolutely love them!

I took some time to review Fast and Fabulous and right away, I loved the fact that the recipes did not require a bunch of ingredients that I did not have in the pantry. In fact, apart from the jalapeño pepper (I had run out), I had all the chicken chili ingredients in the house without having to make a special trip to the store.

As busy moms, that in itself, can be a game changer.

The White Chicken Chili was thick and creamy and had just the right amount of “kick”. Mr Forever Diet was very disappointed that there were no leftovers for lunch the next day and has already asked me to make it again. I shared a bowl with my neighbor and she has already asked for the recipe! (several times…)
