This was a very good recipe. I did as most people do, and did just a little alteration to it. I left out the corn, added a 2nd can of white beans. Along with the seasonings that it list, I also added a tsp of Chipotle Chili Powder. I really like spicy, so I think next time I may dice up a habanero into it along with the green chilis.
Very good, mild flavored chili. I am not a big fan of spicy things, but might up the spices in this one a bit next time. For kids though, this would be perfect and it is easy to add more heat to individual servings as desired. The milk and flour gives it a nice, creamy texture that is wonderful! This was very easy to make and everyone loves it with cheese, avocado, sour cream and the crushed tortilla chips. Thanks for sharing!
I chose this recipe because I liked your photo so much! The milk and the two types of beans gave it a nice creamy texture (like a chowder). Avocado made a perfect topping. I will enjoy making this again. Thanks Pam, for another great recipe.
