White Chicken Chili Soup Recipe and Chocolate Crinkles for Dessert
This White Chicken Chili Soup Recipe is delicious. In fact, my children call it the "World Champion Chili". It is amazingly easy to make and great home cooked comfort food. The flavors in this soup are fabulous and everyone loves Chocolate Crinkles.
Wine Pairing: Your favorite Chardonnay would be a great choice of wine to pair with this soup. This full bodied white wine has flavors of lemon or grapefruit. If aged in oak barrels, it will have a rich buttery taste. Recommendations include Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve Chardonnay ands Martin Ray Russian River Valley Chardonnay.
