This was the first white chili recipe I ever made. I loved that you didn't have to cook the chicken first. I usually have all the ingredients, so it only takes ten minutes to put together. This is great for company, since it does not need minding.

The flavor of this chili is great but I had a problem with liquid (and I DID drain all the beans and corn). I thought the 1 1/2 cups of water was a bit too much so I only added 1 cup of water and I felt it was still a bit too liquidy. It's a great recipe though, I'm going to play around with it and make it less watery. Next time I'll chop the chicken into smaller pieces. I also added more cumin....almost a tablespoon full, just because we love that flavor, and I used Tabasco smoked chipotle sauce for the hot sauce. I served it with tortilla chips and my family really liked it, especially my home-from-college daughter who is sick of dorm food! Thanks Roxy, this is almost 5-star and will be when I can figure out how to make it less watery!
