    Karen in MA's Note:

    Slow cookers allow you to assemble a recipe with very little prep time. Best of all, the cooker does all of the work for you, with the ingredients simmering together for hours helping to bring out the best flavors.

      Oh my gosh....just the best white chili I've tried. I served it in bread bowls and there wasn't a drop or crumb left! The only tweaking I did was use fat-free half and half rather than the cream and omitted the coriander because I didn't have it. Yummmmy!

      This is a great chili. I did this on the stove top and let it simmer. I didn't have cream so used 2 % milk and didn't thicken it. Have a little leftover for lunch. Was good.

      Unbelievably delicious!!! The only thing I changed was to put the beans in at the last 45 min (same time and cream, etc.) so they were not so soft. The bread bowls are a great idea also. We don't even make red chili anymore after tasting this!
