White Chili I


"This recipe has been used by me for several years, but keeps getting changed just a bit every time depending on what is in the pantry and freezer. If you prefer poultry instead of pork, substitute 1 pound ground chicken or turkey for the ground pork."

My husband and every adult who tries this loves it. We serve it with SCOOPS fritos, and it's heavenly. Also up north it's called SNOW CHILI.:)

Awesome. I followed the recipe with the exception of the meat. I used a combination of ground turkey and turkey breakfast sausage. My hubby has always bragged about his red chili, but this dish ...

Good basic white chili. It was fast & easy to make because there where not a lot of ingred., everyone liked. I did use chicken instead of pork. A keeper!

This chili is fabulous. We made it a week ago and then again tonight. It's very easy and delicious. NOTE: Do not substitute other types of cheese for monterey jack, they won't melt properly!...
