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.

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.
