White Bean Chicken Chili

Recipe by Diana Adcock

I love this with crusty french bread sticks and a salad.

Excellent. Like all the other reviewers, I made my own variations: more chili powder and cumin because I didn't have jalapenos; red pepper flakes instead of cayenne. Used cooked leftover chicken, added a bag of fresh spinach at the end, and a jar of garden vegetable tomato sauce. Is it still the same recipe? Well, cousins! It was good.
