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.

I threw all the ingredients into a crockpot and let the chili cook on low for about 4-5 hours. It was delicious definitely needs the lime to perk up the flavors. Julie Read More

Easy to make alternative to spicy tomato based chili I'm a huge chili fan regularly stocking my freezer with a tomato based one with beans and ground turkey and fell in love with this alternative. It's a great dish to make and save in lunch ready portions in the freezer. I made the recipe as is with the addition of a tablespoon of smoked paprika which I love. It doesn't add spice but it gave a nice smokey flavor. If you keep your pot covered while this simmers you won't lose as much moisture. Adding an extra cup of water towards the end if you want will not dilute the amazing flavor this has. Pros: easy to make adaptable hearty Read More

I made mine more of a soup by eliminating one can of the beans. I only had one can of chilies and I grilled the chicken because chopping. It was super easy and the whole family loved it (which doesn't happen often)! Pros: Easy and delicious Read More

This is a keeper. Adding the lime to your own taste really tops it off. I didn't think the lime would work but it does. I also added some red pepper flakes for a little extra punch. Sherry Kendallville IN Read More

Very easy to make for a quick weeknight dinner. The lime definitely brings out the flavor of the chili. I thickened the sauce a bit after reading the previous comments that it was like a soup but it was not really necessary. I served it over rice and everyone enjoyed it. Lia Read More

Wonderful winter soup! I added more red pepper - we like spicy! The recipe is so quick and easy. The first time I made it was with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. But it was so easy and delicious it has become a recurring item on my 'what to have to dinner tonight??' menu. I also diced fresh avocado on top of the soup and my husband loved it! Pros: So easy Read More

A Recipe to Keep! Fabulous! This is my go to recipe! I just either mash some beans in the pot with my potato masher or puree one can of beans in my food processor to add thickness to my chili. It is truly a great tasting dish. I hope you try it and think about using the beans to thicken the soup instead of adding flour. Read More

I made this soup for a few friends and it got rave reviews. I only used one can of green chilis because not everyone who ate it could handle spicy food. It was more soupy than typical chili because there was so much broth but the spices were familiar chili flavors. I will definitely make this again. Read More
