White Chili with Chicken and Poblano Peppers

White Chili with Chicken and Poblano Peppers would be considered  a little more on the New side with our family menu. I wanted to make something hearty but different  when it came to Chili to enjoy on chilly Florida nights, believe it or not here in Central Florida we get  a few shortly after the last week of October.White #Chili with #Chicken Recipe and Photo by Heidy L.
