This fragrant "white" chili is an unusual, delicious alternative to traditional tomato-based chilis. Serve with lime wedges and a dollop of sour cream or a sprinkling of cheese.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Delicious! I added flour to thicken the sauce but next time would use less broth. I also added garlic and salt (I used low sodium broth). Definitely add lime juice as it really gives it that extra kick. I served with sour cream and cheese...
