Cajun White Chicken Chili

Hi Dolls,

The temperatures in Florida have taken a frigid dive below 50 and we are COLD! There’s nothing better than a hardy bowl of chili to warm up the soul and this Cajun-style white chicken chili is one of my family’s favorite meals to enjoy during the winter! I love making this meal using my Instant Pot because it is ready in under 20 minutes but the flavors are so well-rounded, your family will think you spent hours preparing it! If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can still accomplish the same amazing chili, stove top! You’ve got to try it, I promise it’ll become a family favorite for you as well! Check out the recipe below!
