Chili is a wonderful dish for cooler weather. It doesn’t just make a perfect comfort dinner; it is also great to serve on game days. White chili, made with chicken (or turkey), vegetables, and white beans is a lighter version of a classic chili. I kicked it up a notch by adding pumpkin flavors to make it a nice seasonal dish.
