Reviews for Turkey White Chili
"Added a can green chili, husband raved"
"Is that right? 3 cups of broth? It came out very soupy, but taste was good."
"Why do people insist on commenting on a recipe before they even try it? Then they don't even read the recipe correctly :) chicken BROTH."
"What a nice idea for an after-Thanksgiving meal, and a refreshing change of pace from the usual Turkey Veg soup and Turkey Tetrazzini. I will replace the ground turkey with extra cubed leftover meat, and may use Great Northern beans, but the seasonings and the idea sound delicious. I'll be back after Thanksgiving to let you know how we liked it."
"It's nice to see a white chili recipe that doesn't use canned condensed soup. I presume the chicken is added at the same time as the turkey, even though the recipe doesn't state when to add the chicken. White Italian beans (Cannellini) or navy beans or Great Northern white beans could be used instead of chickpeas, btw.I haven't tried the recipe yet so it's not easy for me to rate it, but the software is insisting that I give my review a star rating also. Since it sounds decent enough, I'll rate it highly. I'm sure I'll have to tweak it some, though; possibly adding more jalapeno and maybe some all-purpose Mexican seasoning I bought from Mountain Rose Herbs."
