    We tasted it before adding the cheese. It was wonderful without it so we left it out. - 3/22/10

    Very Good
    Have made this several times. I adjust the spices to suit my degree of spiciness for the event. It turns out well. I don't put the cheese in I use it as a garnish. This is the best white chili I have made. - 1/27/13
