Reviews forCreamy White Chili
"Loved it!! Had a perfect little spice."
"I made this chili for our Super Bowl party. Everyone raved about how good it was and requested the recipe. The only thing I did differently was simmered it all day so the flavors could meld and the chicken would be super tender. It's not a real thick chili but that could easily be remedied by adding a little cornstarch, if that bothers you. Otherwise, this is a delicious recipe and I'm so glad I gave it a try. It's a keeper! :)"
"Yum! If you like really thick chili, I would suggest cutting back on the stock and sour cream/whipping cream a bit (and maybe the cayenne pepper too then) or adding a bit of cornstarch to thicken or pureeing a portion as other reviewers mentioned, but we thought it was really good as written! Just the right spiciness- I can't tolerate much heat but this leaves just a little 'bite' in your mouth after eating it. (Or...if it's too thin- maybe you're not simmering it long enough with the lid off?)"
"This was terrible. I followed the recipe exactly. It tasted fine until I added the sour cream and whipping cream. Then, it turned into a thin, white, flavorless soup. Do not bother."
"My family loves the chili. I thought the beans might scare my little ones so I blended it in my immersion blender a bit. The second time I made it, I did not blend and everyone enjoyed it and requested seconds. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing."
"Love this chili! Since I don’t like things too spicy, I used less cayenne pepper and it was perfect."
"I have made this Chil several times. I cook for Bingo, and everyone really likes it. At first they were afraid to try it, as they had never heard of it. My family also thinks it's great!"
"I pretty much stuck to the recipe, except I used leftover chicken. I did use one can of chilies and skip the cayenne pepper..so I guess I really didn't stick to the recipe. It was good either way!"
"Very tasty and creamy."
