White bean and chicken chili

Fall has finally arrived in our small West TN town and I am dusting off my crock pot (well not really because I enjoy using mine all year round, but it’s time to put it through it paces this season) & digging out some of our fall favorite recipes and keeping my eyes out for some news ones to add! This chili recipe will be staying in my “favorite” folder for years to come!
