Favorite Toppings For White Chicken Chili

This chili is great served without any additional toppings, but sometimes I like to add a little something extra!

Some of my favorite toppings to add are shredded cheddar cheese or Pepper Jack cheese, crumbled tortilla chips or corn chips, a dollop of sour cream, green onions, avocado and sliced Jalapenos.

What To Serve With White Chicken Chili

One of my favorite things to serve with this White Chicken Chili is Cornbread. So good!

My dad would always crumble cornbread into his soups and chili. You could also serve this over a bowl of rice with some crusty bread or homemade rolls.
