"This was good! I may make it again. I used rotisserie chicken and great northern beans. I did omit the half-and-half altogether as there seemed to be no need for it.

* made this again and added a star to my rating. I love it. Yummy yummy comfort food. If only my family loved it like I do!"

"The best White chili recipe I have ever tasted or made. I cooked 4 chicken thighs as we like dark meat, so had more broth than recommended in recipe, maybe 4 cups, had about a half can of canned evaporated milk that needed to be used. Other than that followed recipe."

"I made this recipe a couple of times, then made it 'mine' as my husband liked this recipe, but I felt it lacked some oomph. I kept most of the recipe intact, but added my own twist. I cut up and cooked 1/2 pound of smoky pepper bacon, removed meat to a paper towel, then used the bacon grease to saute the onions and cut up chicken. If I do not use the bacon, I use olive oil in place of canola as I do not use any vegetable oils at any time for any reason. Then I added half the bacon back to the pan and added 4 cloves of minced garlic, stirred and cooked for two minutes. Added the chicken broth, rinsed hominy and cannelini beans, one can of green chiles, 1/4 cup of diced jalapenos (from my freezer as they come from my garden), a teaspoon of cumin, a 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon of oregano, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, 1/2 teaspoon real sea salt (pink kind), 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, and allowed this to simmer for 30 minutes, then added 1/4 cup fresh chopped green onions (scallions), and allowed to simmer for another 5 mninutes, then added 1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese, 1 cup sour cream, 1/3 cup whole milk, 1 Tbls. parsley, and 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro. Stirred to melt cheese and incorporate all ingredients. Each bowl was garnished with a dollop of sour cream, some chopped green onions, some reserved bacon pieces, and a bit of Monterey Jack cheese. My husband loved it."

"I have to double this recipe every time I make it! It disappears! I tend to add corn, carrots, green beans.....what ever I have on hand that is easy and healthy."

"I make this White chili with Hominy often in the winter. It is delicious. I use can chicken from Costco drained, for the chicken. I take it to soup luncheons at Church and there is never any left and people want the recipe. I also won a ribbon

at a chili cooking contest at Church."

"This soup is so wonderful. My family loves it. Sometimes I don't add the chicken, the beans make it a full meal without it, that makes it very economical too."
