I was in Mammoth Lakes, California, with a group of friends for New Years Eve. We had a great time skiing, snowshoeing, and snowboarding on the short trip. I did not grow up around mountains (we traveled from frigid Minnesota to tropical climates), but I always love going to and seeing the mountains covered with snow. The air is fresh and it leaves me feeling refreshed. This is what I was working with:
One night we made this chicken and white bean chili after a long day on the slopes. This recipe made enough to feed six hungry adults, with some for leftovers. It is healthy and uses my favorite kitchen tool – the slow cooker. We served this chicken chili with the blue cornbread muffins.
