Smoky White Bean Chicken Chili w/Fire Roasted Tomatoes

I promise you will love this chicken chili!  The shredded chicken is sautéed in the smoky spices while the white cannelloni beans add a nice creamy texture!  Then throw in the fire roasted tomatoes and you have quite the chili.  The whole family will love it.  You can freeze left-overs in separate containers so it’s easy to pull out and thaw and reheat one at a time.  Healthy and delicious.  Enjoy!
