White Chicken Chili at the Campground

We’ve got a pretty long history with this white chicken chili. About twenty years ago, Jeremy and I spent a lot of time in Ohio.

Learning to cook has been an exciting and stressful process for me. Cooking is exciting when the food comes out good and Stephanie and the boys enjoy it. But it is stressful when I spend good money on food and precious time cooking and it comes out tasting like…..rubber, cardboard, burnt flesh, over seasoned roadkill, cement etc… So I’ve been playing it safe and trying to master a few basic recipes.
