I cheated a little and used precooked chicken fajita meat just because I had to use it up. Also used 8 oz. gr. chiles. Took a guess and drained the beans and corn. This is a very good white chili recipe. I threw my old one out. I contemplated not adding the lime juice and cilantro but trust me it puts this recipe in a league of its own. Thanks for this recipe Amy. I am already looking forward to making it again.

Delish! I followed the recipe with the following exceptions: red kidney beans instead of white because the store was out of those, and I used a cilantro paste (1 tablespoon - Goya) in lieu of cilantro because I didn't want to buy the whole bunch for 2 tablespoon's worth. The seasonings were perfect...spicy enough but not too spicy for bland food-loving hubby. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!
