Reviews forCreamy White Chili
"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."
"Runner up in a chili cook-off. However I did use a whole rotisserie chicken. Was very thick, the way I wanted it based on the reviews below I did not want it to be thin. Crowd loved and I am almost certain I would have won if I hadn't run out. People came back for seconds before the last (5) people could judge it."
"My husband made this the other night for a crowd and it was delicious! He did not add the jalapeno because we didn't know if all the people could handle or enjoy that. Agree with the reviewers about it being thin, but you can add crackers at the table or just tweak with cornstarch, sour cream, or cream cheese."
"Really good recipe! However, after adding the sour cream and heavy cream it did get soupy. After adding the creams I ended up putting it back on low heat to warm it back up and then added a teaspoon or so of corn starch to thicken it up. Worked perfectly"
"So so recipe. It's more like a soup than a hearty chili. The recipe calls for WAY too much chicken stock. Half that amount would have been more than enough. The chili never thickens no matter how long you cook it. Again, this should be called soup not chili. Way better chili recipes out there. Won't make again."
"@Steve - Cannellini beans are not the same as great northern beans. Great Northern are smaller and have a different texture."
