Quick White Chicken Chili

Everytime I make this for a potluck or family gathering, it goes so quickly! For a (very) spicy variation, you can add ground red pepper or chopped jalapeno! Recipe easily doubles or triples for guests. In a hurry, you can use the canned chicken that's already cooked.

1/11/09 Tried this recipe for the 1st time today and we all loved it, I only had a few issues with it. No where in the recipe does it say to remove the chicken after browning (which I didnt and still it came out great) and I believe that some may feel that the amount of cumin is too much. I added the 2 teaspons as called for and it produced a strong cumin flavor, I also added pieces of Pepper Jack cheese to the pot while simmering and the addition of the sour cream in the serving was a great add. My husband also took white corn chips and crunched them into the soup and said it added great texture and additional flavor. I will make this again.
