White Chicken Chili

Every Christmas, my family gets together to celebrate with our close family friends- the Halbersma's.  They are an amazing family & we all have a great time together.  My mother & Karen Halbermsa were college roommates...and have remained close friends throughout the years.  This past Christmas, we had soup for our supper & my mom made this chili.  It was so good!! 
So cheers* to my family, the Halbersma's & the great memories we made this past Christmas!
