Smoked White Chicken Chili

"Family and friends have always loved my white chicken chili. But when I started smoking the chicken and the peppers it went to a different level, it became a showstopper. Using your favorite hardwood(apple for me) and fresh produce will make a smokey and spicy masterpiece that'll be hard to forget! Pair with red or white, Black Box Cab or Chardonnay will both work perfectly!"
