Verde Chicken Chili

Chili is one of those meals I feel we all know and love, but to be honest, I was about sick of the bland, tomato based chili with saltines. I decided I needed to elevate chili once and for all. And believe me, I did.

This chili is packed with flavors from roasted poblanos, corn, cilantro, salsa verde, chicken and cream cheese. I promise, you haven’t tasted anything like it.

As winter comes to a close, we turn less and less to chilis and soups so use this time to get this recipe in your lineup for meals this week. You will not regret it.

    SO GOOD, and even better the next day! This recipe is super easy and the flavor payoff is massive. I wasn’t sure if we were supposed to roast the poblanos, but I did and it came out delicious. We devoured it for dinner and lunch the next day.

    This was absolutely delicious. I made it in the instant pot dumped everything in except for the cheese. Added that at the end.
