Chili is everyone’s cold day best friend. This White Bean Chili brings in fire roasted tomatoes for an extra kick. Hearty potatoes thicken up the soup and we recommend serving it with crunchy sourdough bread.

Enjoy for a cozy night in! We hope you enjoy. Don’t forget to tag us on Instagram at The Urban Veg if you make this, and let us know what you thought in the comments below!
