Creamy White Chili Recipe

Publisher Photo
I got this wonderful recipe from my sister-in-law, who made a big batch and served a crowd one night. It was a hit. Plus, it's easy and quick, which is helpful since I'm a college student. In all my years of 4-H cooking, I've never had another dish get so many compliments. —Laura Brewer, Lafayette, Indiana

"My husband and I loved this chili. Excellent recipe. Lots of flavor."

"We love this recipe, any one I make this for loves it and asks for it. I would give it 5 stars but for one thing. As delicious as it is, I think it is much improved with the addition of some cilantro."

"I absolutely love this recipe, and have made it many times since it made its first appearance in Taste of Home magazine back in 2001. The only negative is that it is a bit rich, so it should probably be a once-in-awhile thing!"

"This is absolutely delicious - I would give it a 50 star rating if I could. We made it exactly the way the recipe states, we figured if we liked it and we were going to make it again we would make a change then. However it is PERFECT exactly the way it is, we love it!!! I made a batch yesterday (already gone) so I'm making another batch today. Anyone who said they didn't like it (which is maybe one or two) must have used different brands or something than what we did because this is seriously good.....I can't wait to have more today!!!"

"I've had white chili before, but thought a creamy-style would be a nice twist. This was so delicious! My husband kept raving about it."
