    Cathieg's Note:

    This white chili recipe was given to me by a neighbor and is the best one I have found. When making it, I use lowfat sour cream, lowfat or fat free half & half, lowfat margarine, and reduced fat cheese, and it still tastes great.

      VERY GOOD, nice creamy flavor. So I have a record of what I altered...i'm going to bore you readers: 3 (15 oz) cans of navy beans (use 1 or 2 cans of white northern instead of all 3 same) 3 chicken breasts (1 1/2 lb) 1 can green chilis same amount of butter and flour about 2 T sliced, canned jalapanos (and cut smaller) 2 onions and banana peppers 2 cups 1/2 & 1/2 with additional milk and cilantro pesto (blended cilantro) try lime juice next time??? Great spice...adults and 9 year old loved it.

      I just made this chili today for a cook off birthday party. It is wonderful. However I do agree with Pittgal that you need the whole container of chicken broth, and more beans. I also doubled the recipe, I am very excited to see what all the guests think of my chili I hope I win the cookoff!

      The flavor was great!! I added a red pepper and a couple of dashes of Frank's red hot and I doubled the beans. We loved this recipe although it was a bit confusing. I also used the entire can of chicken broth (about 14 ounces) NOTE: Sautee the onions in a separate pan, then add them to the butter and flour roux. Also, drain the beans before adding to the mixture.
