Very easy and quick to make. A little too plain for my palate. Needs some kick.

Loved this recipe. Prep took me more than 10 minutes, but it was worth the wait. Super healthy and filling dinner - just one bowl did it for each of us. A couple of twists: 1) try Campbell's Healthy Request Cream of Chicken soup to lighten it up. 2) add 1 tsp of red chili powder to give it an extra jolt Because of the Healthy Request soup, we did add salt to taste after it was served. A dollop of lowfat sour cream on top made it that much more tasty.

Good chili, easy to make and filling. It was a bit bland, so I added small amount of jalapeno cheese and taco seasoning mix and dried chili peppers to spice it up. Also.. I only had one can of white beans so I added 1 can of black beans which I think is a good addition.

I slow cooked instead. I used whole chicken breast and jalapeño peppers instead of green peppers for more of a kick. Slow cooked for about 8-9hrs. Topped off with some tortilla strips. If it's too thick add 3/4 cups of water or chicken broth.

I am throwing away my other white chicken chili recipes. This was so easy and delicious. And you use only one pot for cooking! The only changes I made were to use a little more cumin and chili powder, added 1 and a half teaspoons onion powder, 1 teaspoon Adobo seasoning , and subsitiuted chicken broth for the water.

This was really good and really easy to make. Perfect for the night that you have no idea what to make. I added 1 cup of salsa.

delicious! However, it did need some salt (I added a good amount of onion salt)
