This is delicious. I know that it is supposed to be white bean but I love kidney beans so added them. I also added stewed tomatoes with jalapenos. Instead of fat free sour cream I used fat free yogurt. I continued to simmer the chili a little after I added the yogurt and half and half which resulted in chunky (not soupy) chili. I am not a cook at all and this recipe made me look good.
I really liked this recipe. I only made half of it and I used a can of tomatoes with jalapenos and used some corn starch at the end to thicken it up. I skipped the half and half altogether and it was great!
It is sooo helpful to read your reviews ahead of making this! To resolve the soupy issue some wrote about, I skipped the fat-free half and half (it is just corn syrup anyway) and added a 3 oz cube of (1/3 Less Fat) NeufchÃ¢tel Cheese (Cream Cheese) it adds about 10 G of fat to the entire pot. I also cut back to about 16 oz of broth and at the end of the process still added just a tiny bit of liquified corn starch. I also added some smoke flavor to the broth step and big chunks of bell peppers when I added the sour cream. Gosh this is good stuff!-- update day two, sour cream flavor got a bit heavy feeling (even though low fat) added a bunch of chopped cilantro and this REALLY made the meal!
This recipe should not be called "chili". It is more like soup. If you want chili I suggest you cut the chicken broth way down and add more beans. Or change the name.
Made this chili last night and it was great. We finished it all!!! I added some extra cumin and oregano for some more flavor, and didnt add the sour cream or half and half. So to thicken it I added some water and corn starch. Turned out beautifully.
I just tried this tonight, and the flavor is amazing. I mean YUMMY. The DH did'nt even complain about the FF sour cream (nearly miraculous). This soup really doesn't taste low fat at all. As the other reviewer mentioned, this is a fairly soupy chili, but that could easily be adjusted to suit your tastes. Yum Yum Yum.
Wow, great chili with a kick. The only thing "wrong" it seemed, was the amount of broth. I didn't use anywhere near 32 oz. It would have been soup, not chili, with all that broth. I used more like 2 cups. very easy recipe, with some real hotness to it, which is the way we like it. Even my youngest DS, who complains about white chili, said it was good.
