Reviews for Creamy White Chili
"My husband is a chili lover. He was however, disappointed when I said we were having "white chicken chili." I left out the whipping cream and the recipe was fine as is. When he ate it he was amazed and absolutely loved it. This recipe is a keeper!"
"This is a great recipe as written; family loved it. I want to make this without the beans as my husband is on a special diet that allows basically no fiber. I am thinking of using pork in place of chicken and white potatoes in place of beans. Wondering if anyone has changed it around like this? As long as the flavor is there I would think this would work. Any suggestions are appreciated!"
"Had to try this when I saw how many reviews it had! I left out the whipping cream. It turned out really great!"
"Wow, this is a winner! Very tasty, with just the right amount of heat. After cooking the chicken and onions on the stove, I put everything in my Crock Pot for 4 hours on Low. I was using fat-free sour cream, so I mixed that with 2 tbsp. of cornstarch to keep it from separating. And I didn't have any heavy cream, so I left that out, but it was plenty creamy without it. I wouldn't change anything else; we really loved this recipe."
"I love it, everyone in my home loves it, and I have been asked for the recipe many times. I have to triple the recipe for my family. It is very easy to make."
"This a an awesome recipe... I shredded my chicken and it was even better the second day....Whole family and staff loved it... Would not change a thing...."
"Good recipe. But on day 2 you need to serve the rest or freeze it. chicken only tastes good for max of 2 days"
"Easy to prepare, great alternative to standard chili receipt! I add sour cream later on once it is served, otherwise fantastic receipt!"
