Blood sugar was still elevated 46 points over 100 after 2 hours of finishing my bowl. I am a new diabetic so I guess I didn't choose wisely with this recipe. I am confused as to what may be the ingredient that caused a large jump. I had fasted for 12 hours before eating this dish. Other than that, this soup is perfect. warmth, filling, flavorful. I will continue to finish off the double batch I made to share with friends and family. Absolutely one of the best white chili dishes I have enjoyed in my life.
Made it exactly as written and it was super delicious. I will definitely be making this one again and again.
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes to make in the colder months. I sometimes do a slow-cooker variation of this recipe if I don't want to spend 1 1/2 hours on this recipe in one sitting. I'll do steps 1 & 3 on the stovetop but then transfer everything to a slow-cooker, where I'll add the zucchini, beans, chiles and broth -- super easy! And I always serve with extra toppings! Shredded Cheddar, scallions and pickled jalapenos are my favorites.
I liked this overall, but the zucchini turned into an overlooked mush - and I didn't even soften it as the recipe instructed. I will make it again, but add zucchini last, maybe for the last 20 minutes of the simmering time.
Fabulous Chili Overall just a great cold winter meal! I used 1/2 cup quinoa instead of bulgur and it turned out great. It does need to cook for awhile before turning into a chili texture instead of just a soup Pros: Get extra veggies with Zuchinni
