Great recipe for chili. A nice change from the typical meat, bean and tomato variety. I'd recommend it to anyone.
This has potential to be really good, but I didn't think that the mixture of spices went very well together. I also enjoy chili with a tomato base much better.
This recipe is also very good with leftover turkey. I cut back on the oregano and added some cayenne, a little cilantro and coriander to the other ingredients spice wise. When adding the chicken/turkey I also add 1/2 c of tequila for more of a southwestern flavor. Making a roux of butter and flour adding slowing before serving will thicken it up nicely. Topping with some fresh chopped tomato, fresh cilantro and chopped red onion is perfect. We call this 'White Chili'.
LOVED IT!! I did make a few changes: used 4 cans of navy beans instead of frozen (cooks faster), We do not like extra spicy, so no chile or jalapeno peppers for us. Instead I put 1/2 tbl chili powder - my family loved it! I also did not have cooked chichen so my 1st step was to boil a packed of tenderloins in the chicken broth!!! It worked very well! I thickened the broth with corn starch.
I soak the beans a couple of hours or overnight, then drain and proceed with the recipe as stated. Very Good.
I like this recipe because of its fairly unusual use of navy beans. Nice change...
Followed the recipe as is. Wonderful - a definite keeper!!! Thanks!!
Yummy stuff! I hate messing with dried beans so I used an equivalent amount in canned (which is about 6-7 c. for 1 lb dry). Interestingly, I used all the chicken broth called for, which normally would have been at least partially soaked up with the beans - so I'm not quite sure how this works out if using dry beans. Just as a note, this is more like a white chili and isn't *supposed* to have a tomato base - that's part of the point.

This zesty white-bean chili packs some heat!
The kick of herbs and spices gives this chili amazing flavor, with less fat.
A flavorful chili that’s a little lighter and less fatty.
