"My favorite chili recipe! Freezes well individual portions, too!"

"I couldn't find my usual White Chicken Chili recipe so tried this. I did not add the chiles, cut back on the cayenne pepper, and it was still plenty hot! Have located my usual recipe and will probably make it next time; I like the spice combination in it."

"Easy recipe and delicious too! I cut it down with a guesstimate of measurements because it is just 2 of us. I also sprinkled some Wondra in as it was cooking to thicken it up a bit. Next time I will cut chicken into smaller chunks, mine were a bit large., and add a bit more green chiles. i was very pleased with the taste and look."

"Always everyone's favorite."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 23, 2014

"This is pretty amazing... especially on a cold blustery night. I used whatever I had... three different beans : chickpeas, red kidney beans and cannelini (mashed up, hearty), and I used chicken thighs with skin and bone, and shredded it after for a deeper, richer taste. My family asked for me to make this a regular menu item! :D"
