White Bean Chicken Chili

Some days you need something warm to fill up your tummy. Whether it’s potato soup or stew or even this White Bean Chicken Chili, when cold weather hits, it’s time to break out the soup bowls! Personally, I like soups and stews and chilis at any time of the year. Some would beg to differ though…one of those being my husband.

This Sausage Stuffing Ball recipe was actually shared years ago on the blog as part of a Christmas post, but it’s so good that it deserves to have a post of its own! I started making these sausage balls when I was 12 or 13. That’s been…ahem…a few years ago. They were an instant hit at our family Christmas gathering that year and since then, have made the menus of multiple parties, holiday celebrations, and “just because we wanted them” {Read More}
