    This SCREAMS 6 *s It was sooo good. I couldnt belive the taste. I did make some changes. I boiled the chicken in water, to omit the oil. I also doubled the cumin, pepper, and mustard and put it all in the crockpot on high for 3 hours. It turned out so wonderful! I didnt use any chips, sour cream or cheese...the taste was fabulous by itself and I wanted to savor it! Thanks for a keeper!

    Ohhhhh Shari2!!!!! Did this ever hit the spot! We had a cold rainy day and I thought perfect to make your White Chicken Chili. I made it exactly as you stated and it was tummy-patting good. I recommend this to everyone. :-)

    I have always wanted to make white chili, and this recipe was a good base. I immediately noticed the lack of fluid vs. the beans and chicken (only 1 cup?), so I used 1-14.5oz can chicken broth for the fluid, plus 1 cup of water. I also used Cannellini beans (white kidney beans - more consistent with a chili recipe!). I used the spices as stated but added a tsp. of chili powder. Also think about using rotisserie chicken with this - that's what I did - just shredded it up. My hubby and I loved it. No optional ingredients needed except I put a little chopped cilantro on mine! When I sauteed the onions and garlic, I made a roux by adding a tbsp of butter and a tbsp of butter b/c I like thick chili then added the liquids until thick and proceeded with the recipe. It was great.

    A new family favorite! I didn't expect to like this one at all, but even our pickest of eaters is a fan. I've even substitued a can black eyed peas and pinto beans, simply b/c I was out of the white ones, and it was just as good!

    I took this recipe up a notch to spicy. I did use chicken stock, leftover chicken, diced smoked sausage, can of green chilies, pinch of cayenne pepper and a couple slashes of hot sauce. Simmered 5 hours in the crock pot. Excellent. Good base recipe.


<p>I am a mother of 3 Children. 1 boy (21) and 2 girls (12 &amp; 19). The picture is of my youngest DD and her dad right before they left for a daughter/father dance on 04/07/06. I work full time and like to find quick and simple recipes to make when I get home or leave for oldest DD to cook for dinner. &nbsp;My oldest DD loves to make the side dishes for dinner so I'm always looking for something she can make. I have a very large collection of cookbooks with Betty Crocker still being my favorite of all even if it is falling apart. lol <br /><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/chef3.jpg alt=Image hosted by Photobucket.com /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/purplechefhat.gif alt=Image hosted by Photobucket.com /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif alt= /> <br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/houdini6.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a><img src=http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/ScrapBook.png border=0 alt=Made by Bella14ragazza /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img title=Photo and Video Sharing src=http://www.pickle.com/plink/ph/795B07337A4704307B51032E7C590636795E1C512307476E143E5A652E076C347C5F02307A5F0032140741682C4659712C.jpg border=0 alt=coolmonday-particiation /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif alt= /><img src=http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/goldsparkle.png border=0 alt=Made by Bella14ragazza /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= />http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/ZWT5banner.jpg</p>
