This recipe was very easy to make and I didn't put as many beans in as it called for. From now on I am going to make this chili one of my regular meals.

This is the one of the best chili recipes that I have tatsted. I doubled the batch for a football party, everyone raved over it and wanted the recipe. I served it with some shredded montery jack cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and corn muffins.

This is one of the best chili recipes I've ever eaten. The seasonings were perfect and the flavor was excellent, not overpowering or too hot. Since it was the first time I had ever made it, I followed the recipe exactly, and would not make any changes now. I served it with a little bit of shredded cheddar, a dollop of sour cream, and corn bread.

Wow! As skeptical as my family was knowing this wasn't regular chili they loved it. Not overpowering hot, it had just a right spiciness to it. Excellent on tortillas.

This is super easy to make. I grilled my chicken breast on my George Foreman while the onions and garlic were cooking. The only trouble I had with this recipe was waiting for the simmering to finish. It smelled so good - made it hard to wait to eat it.

Delicious and a nice switch from beef chili. I have made this several times now and always get rave reviews from hubby.

The "Bob" in the recipe title is Bob Talbert. He was a columnist for the Detroit Free Press until his death. He posted this recipe many years ago.

I found this recipe a few years ago after hubby had some White Chicken Chili at one of our local Mexican restaurants. I've been making it since then and we love it. We like extra spicy food, so I often add a little extra cumin and/or cayenne pepper. Also, if I don't have the chopped green chilies I have substituted chopped fresh jalapenos more than once. I just cook them along with the onions and garlic and it turns out fine. I also sometimes break up tortilla chips and sprinkle them on top. It's very good, especially on cold, wintry days or when you have a cold. Nothing clears those sinuses quite like cayenne pepper and jalapenos! LOL

Comfort food at its best! I put shredded monterey jack on top and served with cornbread. It was a big hit with the whole family! Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing!
