    Love white chili! Very easy recipe. I cube chicken and brown just a little before adding stock and beans. - 1/13/10

  • At the beginning of the week, my husband always grills a bunch of chicken. Then within the next couple of days, we use the leftovers diced up in this recipe. YUMMY! I omit the jalepenos. If it sits as leftovers in the refrigerator, it gets too spicy for me. I use only 1/2 tsp of red pepper too. - 5/15/11

  • OK, so I'm making this recipe for the first time. I didn't have jalapenos, so I added 2 green chilis. I also added black beans instead, cilantro, chopped tomatoes, and a packet of Goya Sazon. Looked and smelled good, but I suppose it isn't "white" chili anymore... Can't wait to taste it. - 1/18/11
