This is the white chili recipe I always use! I found it in a Taste of Home Cookbook and it's absolutely wonderful.My husband loves it and brings the leftovers to work for lunch. The guy he works with loves it too and says it's his favorite meal. I like to garnish it with sour cream, fresh cilantro, sliced green onions and thinly sliced jalapenos . I serve flour tortillas and corn tostadas on the side. A family favorite and it's quick and easy! P.S. Make sure you use the cloves , it gives it a wonderful taste. Don't use more than the 1/4 teaspoon, though. They are very strong, you could even use a little less -but make sure you use a little bit.
