Creamy White Chicken Chili

How is your Monday going? Mine is going great, but it won’t STOP snowing! I know, I live in Utah and I should be use too all this snow but enough is enough! It is beautiful but when it hits February, I start to dream about Spring.  The good thing about this cold weather is the yummy soups that fit perfectly with this kind of day. This is my kind of comfort food on a frigid day like today!

It’s so creamy and delicious that it makes my heart sing! I know, I’m being a little dramatic but it is so good! Usually we have leftovers and that can be such a delight but when I made this it was gone before the night was over.
