Super Fast Vegetarian White Chili

Super fast Vegetarian White ChiliThe first time I had white chili, I was being a judge in a chili cook off.  I was in love from first bite!  White chili doesn’t have the typical flavors of chili that use things like chili powder. Instead the green chili flavor is strong, which I love. This super fast vegetarian white chili recipe is quicker to make than most chili recipes.  This recipe uses store bought salsa, making it really fast to throw together, which is always a plus!
