Reviews for Mexican White Chili
"Very nice! I forgot to get chickpeas, so I used chili beans that I had, but it tasted good. I also added more chiken broth, b/c 2 cups didn't seem like enough. Topped with cheese, sour cream and avocdo."
"The cumin and cilantro do make this a great tasting recipe if you like those spices. I made it two times: once with ground pork and once with ground turkey. I prefer the pork personally. I added more salt and the optional add ins when I served it. A keeper in our house."
"Made this two nights ago. Will not make again. Flavor was just Blech. I like a creamy white chili myself."
"This is the best chili I have ever made. It is our New Years Day tradition to make a big pot of it and take it up the mountain to have after skiing."
