Reviews for Creamy White Chili
"This was very easy and very good! I'm not sure that it yields 7 servings if served as a main course (likely closer to 4). Certainly, pre-cooked chicken (or turkey) could be used for even further ease, making it a great recipe for leftovers. I used cannellini beans and part of me thought they weren't hearty enough. I almost wanted to replace the beans with potato...but then I guess it wouldn't be chili! Either way, I will certainly make it again!"
"I was looking for a chili with a white sauce because the tomato sauce gives me heartburn. So does the white but not as bad, when I found this and made it for the first time. Now my family can't get enough of it!! It's not difficult to make at all! And heartburn, yeah probably. BUT WHO CARES THIS STUFF IS THE BOMB!! Thanks for the recipe, it's a hit and a change from the regular hamburger and red sauce. It's my new chili go to!!"
"Delicious !! I loved it because it skips the tomatoes which I'm tired of lately every quick dish is buried in tomato sauce.Had to improvise, only had 1 can of chilies, added a tsp of chipotle to make up for it.1 half breast wasn't a pound 2 was a little over. The extra bit of meat was a bonus.Don't always have heavy cream on hand, had to leave it out but used a bit of whole milk.Served it with crispy garlic Texas Toast.This is worth expanding for a crowd. It's a nice change from red chili that seems to be the rage."
"Make this! You'll be happy you did."
"I created an account simply to post this review. That's how good this chili is! I made it as described, and it was seriously amazing! I personally wouldn't change a thing. I plan on making it again this weekend for out of town family that'll be staying with us. Don't hesitate to make this!"
"This was just OK. It wasn't bad but I thought it was missing something (corn? cilantro? not sure what). I gave it 4 stars because of the ease of the recipe. Not sure how this recipe wins cook-off's though..."
"I used canned chicken - even faster and easier. A new family favorite!"
"Delicious! This is definitely one of our favorites!"
"I won yet another chili cook-off with this recipe last weekend. It's a keeper for sure!!!"
