      This turned out really good ! I served it with Cornbread. The family was surprised to see a "white" chili and were pleasantly surprised with the taste. they enjoyed the "kick" aspect =)

      Had this for lunch today using leftover chicken breast. We liked it. However, the consistency was more like soup, so we added a cornstarch slurry to thicken it up a bit. I used 2 (4 oz) cans of diced green chilies since I didnt have any jalapenos. I think the chili would be improved by adding fresh chopped cilantro. I topped with smoked cheddar cheese. This was certainly fast and easy with minimal prep required. Thanks.

      This was excellent, the only changes I made were to use paprika instead of cayenne and subbed 1 tsp. of marjaram for the cumin. Also, simmered for 1+ hours and I added fresh cilantro in at the very end. Scrumptious! Will be making this whenever leftover turkey is around.
