Great Northern Bean Chili

 Great Northern Bean Chili
Seven ingredients makes this mild version of a Southwestern chicken chili. I like to add a dash of hot sauce and some sour cream on top, and serve it with tortilla chips. It's a great alternative to traditional chili.—mamesmom, Taste of Home Online Community
