      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.

      I used this recipe tonight to use up some of our leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I doubled the recipe as we are a chili loving family. It was very spicy, but very delicious. It is my son's 1Oth Birthday today. He requested chili and I really want to use up all of the leftovers before they go bad. This was a great way to achieve that. I followed your directions, only changing one thing. I added 4 tablespoons of cornstarch with 6 tablespoons of cold water to create a slurry in order to thicken it up right at the beginning of the simmer process. It seemed a bit thin, and after reading the other reviews, I thought it needed to be thickened too. It was great, quick and easy. I will definitely be making this again, but I may decrease the heat a bit. Thanks KelBel!
