The temperatures are starting to get a little cooler, and that means it's time for soupsstews, and chili to start making more of a regular appearance on the weekly menu. Today, I want you to cozy up to a big bowl of white bean chicken chili.

The best part--it will be on your table within 20 minutes. Yes, you read that correctly. No need to spend hours cooking this chili. The flavors are awesome with this quick-cooking chili, and with doing a little prep at the beginning before your ready to cook you'll have dinner on the table in no time.

The key to the quick-cooking chili is using leftover rotisserie chicken. You can shred it or chop it--whatever your preference is. You'll sauté an onion, poblano pepper and garlic until they are soft then in a little bit of the chicken stock. This is one of those recipes where it's best to prep before you cook.

While the onions, peppers and garlic cook, rinse and drain the beans and chop the chicken. Add the beans, chicken, frozen corn kernels, lime juice, the remaining chicken stock, chili powder, cumin, and salt to the pot.

Mix well, place the lid on the pot and cook on medium for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Before your ready to serve you'll mix in the fresh cilantro. Divide among a few bowls and dollop with a little plain Greek yogurt and a little more, fresh cilantro.
