Reviews for White Chili with Chicken
"This is a great recipe. I like the zip...but if you're a wimp you might cut the cayenne. Will definitely make again."
"Delish! My husband surprised me by cooking this at home all by himself while I had to work late one night. Great recipe.~ Theresa"

"My family loved this recipe and wanted me to make it again the next week. I replaced the jalapeno with a small can of mild green chilis. It's a quick, nutritious comfort food!"
"Omit jalapeno peppers and add instead,1 (8oz) block Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers, cut into chunks"
