White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

Publisher Photo
My sister shared this chili recipe with me. I usually double it and add one extra can of beans, then serve with cheddar biscuits or warmed tortillas. The jalapeno adds just enough heat to notice but not too much for my children. —Kristine Bowles, Albuquerque, New Mexico

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 12, 2014

This has great flavor but "chili" is misleading. It is more like a soup with a chili flavor. I did add a second can of beans mashed to give it a bit more thickness and my son and I like a little more heat so, I used all of the jalepeno pepper, seeds and all. Very tasty and nice for a cold night.

I doubled it to fit better in my 5 quart slow cooker. Yum!

This was more of a soup to me. Maybe I will try again with an extra can of beans mashed to thicken. Needs a little more something. But, it is a great base to start with and make your own.
