A bowl of white chicken chili is presented with an addition of kale.

Spring has sprung and April brings the memories of sunshine and warmth. But in Wyoming, spring isn’t always clear skies and rainy days. 

The snow that tends to fall on the ground and the wind that keeps the state cold calls for a new recipe to try. During this month, a bowl of white chicken chili is sure to put your taste buds on a warm adventure.

The spices added won´t leave your taste buds on fire, so don’t worry about it being too hot. The addition of hot sauce will spice it up if that’s what you prefer, but putting shredded cheese or Fritos on top is also a perfect way to add more flavor.
