    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is one of my favorite dishes! the original recipe calls for cooked chicken breasts, but I just purchase a store-bought cooked chicken and take the meat off of it, use as much chicken as desired. You can adjust the chili powder and cumin to taste, and use really whatever beans you desire, I like canellini beans also.

      I always find your recipes to be very good kittencal. This one is no exception. My husband loves white bean chili. I've have been using the same recipe for about 5 years. While looking thru new recipes I saw yours and thought I'd give it a try. It's great. I like the half & half and the addition of the corn. I had to add some Italian spice and a bit more cumin (just love that earthy cumin taste and smell). I snuck a small cup and it's really good. I know my husband will love the smell as he walks thru the door and the taste when he takes the first sip. thanks!
