Best Ever White Chili

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by chelle keithley

I have searched all over for a GREAT white chili recipe, I finally found one. This is SUPER easy and pretty quick. As with all chili, increase or decrease the spices to suit you. I add extra cumin and cilantro because I love them both so much.

I made this according to the recipe except that I used leftover rotisserie chicken meat and my own homemade chicken broth. This stuff is beyond yummy! The cilantro and the garlic are wonderful, add to that the fact that there is no chili powder, I think, allows the cumin to really shine. I'm adding the pepper jack cheese to the serving bowl, instead of to the whole pot, although I think this could stand on it's own as is. I really enjoyed this,thanks for the recipe, and for showing me that you can have good chili without chili powder!
