Recipe by  

"I altered a combination of two different recipes to come up with this chili. It's kind of like a mild green chili that's white with beans."

This chili cannot be called mild, but it's very tasty! If you are sensitive to spice, don't add the jalapenos or cut back the cayenne, or both. Chili is forgiving that way. That being said, I didn't reduce anything, because we like it on the spicy side. I was in a huge hurry when I made this though, so instead of starting everything in the skillet, I threw everything straight into the slow cooker, including whole chicken breasts. Before serving, I shredded them in the pot. Also, after tasting, I decided that it needed a little something on the sweet side to cut the spicy a tad, so I added a can of corn, and it was perfect. I will definitely make this again, and I'm looking forward to lunch this week!

OH MY GOSH! So hot! I absolutely love spicy food but this was so spicy I got through half a bowl before I had to quit. With a runny nose and sweat dripping off my forehead I can say it was tasty but I would definitely cut back on the peppers and chilies! I made a whole crockpot full and no one in my family can eat it.

I am the originator of this recipe. I like the idea of adding corn to this, thanks for the suggestion. Sometimes I use two cans of great northern beans and one can of black beans to add a little more color. It is wonderful served with fritos, a scoop of sour cream and a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese on top.

Delish. Kept to the recipe, though, I did remove most of the seeds from the jalapeno peppers. Perfect meal on this cold winter evening.

We loved this recipe. I took the advice of the other reviewers and backed off the peppers using a half green serrano pepper instead. I also added corn as suggested. I cooked it on top of the stove instead of the slow cooker and only simmered it about 20 minutes. The aroma brought my husband out of his study to help set the table. He was anxious to try it!
