Chili is known to be a great winter treat and a perfect comfort food. Unfortunately, here in FL we didn’t get winter this year. I think the lowest the temperature got during the day was 50. I remember in November we started to get a little chill, so I ran out and got a big fat warm jacket for the little man. So far he wore this jacket twice…can you say “money wasted?”
 I didn’t want to miss out on my favorite winter treats though, so I went ahead and made some chili anyway. It went very nicely while sitting all snuggled in a blanket…in an air-conditioned apartment!
I’ve heard of white chili before and it sounded like an interesting variation. I did some research on chili recipes and came up with this awesome white turkey chili recipe. YUM!

    Stopping by from Nifty Thrifty. This sounds really good, never used tomatillos in it before. That seems like a great addition. I really only like white chili’s and have tried a few, I will be giving this one a try too. Thanks for sharing the recipe. My fingers are crossed that you will share this at Sunday’s Best going on now.
