This white bean chili is hearty and a nice change of pace from red chili. We love it topped with avocados, and leftovers are taken for lunch in a thermos the next day. You can even sneak a little chicken liver in, just fry it in butter, coconut oil, or ghee and then crumble in a couple tablespoons of the cooked liver and your family will never know the difference!
