Fairytale Recipe: Renaissance White Chicken Chili

Hear ye, Hear ye! All those looking for something to make during tomorrow's playoff games take heed: my Renaissance White Chicken Chili Recipe is here just in time! If you enjoy the flavors of tortilla soup, you will be sure to love this special chili. And if you don't have all ingredients on hand, don't stress - just improvise. The amounts of the chili powder, jalepeno peppers, and chipotle peppers are all suggestions. If you like spicy foods, then feel free to add the maximum amounts and also cut back a little bit on the cinnamon.

This unique chili recipe puts a spin on the classic chili and packs a powerful punch of Latin flavors that is sure to please and impress Jets and Colts, Vikings and Saints fans alike. It's Renaissance chili because it will reinvent the way you think about chili and reinvigorate your spirit just in time for the game! So what are you waiting for? Get cooking!
