Made as directed with minor alterations....used roasted Hatch green chile I had in my freezer from the season this year frozen corn and homemade chicken broth. I also used the optional seeded jalapeno and this was spicy! After initial tasting I went back and added 8oz of cream cheese to attempt to cool things down a bit and give the chili the creamy factor I was looking for. It helped some and this will be something I make again. Read More

I'll be making this again but I did modify a little bit. I used a combo of breast and boneless skinless thighs boiled them in the chicken stock with a few garlic cloves sazon seasoning adobo chili powder and a little salt. I boiled it so I could shred the chicken. Pulled the chicken out strained the broth then followed the rest of the recipe. It was A. Made cheddar jalapeño cornbread to go with it. Boom. Read More

This was an awesome twist!!! I however used navy beans (using what I had on hand). I simmered the beans in a crockpot till ready and added the rest I also used fresh green chili peppers not only for a fresher taste but added color of a darker green rather than can it was amazing I made this dish for a family gathering and received great compliments. Another hit with hubby!! I also served this with mini corn muffins I made. Read More

This was the first time I made White Chili and it was AWESOME!! I recommened using more Great Northern Beans and maybe small pieces of chicken. I used (4) large chicken breasts and it was a little too much chicken for me. I also omitted the corn. It was great!! The cumin adds that special flavor. My husband said it was awesome. He went back for seconds!!! Read More

I was in the grocery store on my phone looking for a chicken chili recipe and this one caught my eye. Simple enough to make quickly tonight and enough left over to serve to a group of friends coming over again tomorrow. I tripled the recipe I think. Added a bunch of chopped rainbow chard that needed to be used and omited the jalepeno. A large can of roasted green chilis was enough flavor for my family. Thank you for a great guideline to follow! Delicious recipe!! Read More

I followed the instructions exactly but it tasted kind of bland and wasn't very spicy. Some people may enjoy but it isn't for me. Read More
