Chili is a fall and winter favorite for many but it can be hard to find a great chili if you are following a low carb diet.  This is especially true when you are looking for white chicken chili in my experience.  So for this recipe instead of the beans you would traditionally find in chili, we added extra chicken, cauliflower, and spinach.  To save time I am using a store bought green salsa which helps this meal come together in under 20 minutes.  Serve it with sour cream, queso fresco, avocado, cilantro, yogurt, or cheddar cheese.
