    1. 1
      Combine all ingredients except chips into a large crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours. (For a quick meal, cook on stove over med-high heat until cheese is melted).
    2. 2
      Add crushed chips about 10 minutes before serving. (They help thicken the soup and add a great flavor!) Garnish with grated cheddar cheese and additional fresh cilantro. A dollop of sour cream is yummy too!).
    3. 3
      Cooks notes: I use a 2 1/2 lb. bag of frozen chicken tenders, browned and cut into bite sized pieces. Also, do NOT add salt to the soup. There is plenty of salt in the chips and cheese. You can also use 1 bag of cooked dry beans instead of the canned beans.
    4. 4
      * The "Monterey jack pepper cheese" is usually called "Pepper Jack Cheese" in most markets.

      I used more garlic and lime and after almost 3 hours in the crock pot all the liquid was gone, so I should have at least doubled the salsa. It was really good, but I added more cumin and salsa and some chili powder and corn to the leftovers and it was even better that way. A quarter recipe served with chips on top and tortillas on the side fed about 3 people.

      This was delicious, and probably the very best white bean chili I've ever tasted (as the title states). I served it with a jalapeno cornbread, and everyone really enjoyed this chili. The cheese and sour cream gave it a creamy texture, but the cumin and salsa gave it a nice kick. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Grannie B. Made for Fall 2012 Pick-A-Chef.
