White Chili with a Kick Recipe

Publisher Photo
Store-bought rotisserie chicken makes this spicy chili easy, but you could also cook your own. We like it with sour cream, green onions, cheese or salsa on top. —Emmajean Anderson, Mendota Heights, Minnesota

MY REVIEW

We LOVE this chili! I made it just as the recipe says and I wouldn't change a thing. Delicious!

MY REVIEW

The ultimate compliment came to me last night when my daughter, Kelly, asked me to give her this recipe because her husband, Jeff, likes it verrrrrry much! I will be making it several times this winter.

MY REVIEW

Great soup. Only thing I changed was because a local restaurant makes a similar soup and they roast pablono (sp?) peppers and puree them, which I decided to use instead of green chilies. I'm single, but like to make my own soups, then freeze in serving size containers for quick meals. The Senior Citizens I served this to really enjoyed it. Not to hot and spicy. Just enough "kick". Oh, I also used more chicken broth than recipe calls for.

Instead of green chilies I use 1 can of Hormel Green Chili with Pork, I leave out the corn, and add 1 cup Pace Picante Sauce (medium).

One of the best White Chili recipes I have made. I did substitute Jalapenos for the chilies and left the seeds. I chopped them up and cooked with the onions
