White Chicken Chili

We volunteered today at the soup kitchen that our church participates in once a month so for dinner I wanted something quick and easy that I did not have to stand in the kitchen for a long time making. I had everything for white chicken chili so I made a batch of that. I found this recipe last year on a cooking board that I frequent. We really like this recipe. Since Alex would be eating it, I didnt put the whole can of green chiles in because I was not sure if she would like them. Dinner was a hit for everyone. I hope you enjoy!

1 can (19 ounces) white kidney beans (cannellini)
