Excellent. I made this while we were camping and everyone loved it. Since I was making this for a crowd I doubled the recipe and only added one can of the diced chili peppers, I didn't want it to be too spicy. I took advise from other reviews and added one packet of McCormick white chile mix and 2 cans of white corn and 2 cans of beans. I used low fat sour cream and fat free half & half. I put everything in my crock pot except the sour cream and half & half. After a nice hike in the mountains, the camper smelled great. My husband and everyone else said this was a keeper.

I considered many other recipes before choosing this one and am I glad I did. I subbed fresh garlic for the powdered and cut down on the oregano to 1/4 tsp (just don't like oregano much). I added shoepeg corn and some Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes (diced) because that helps cut the richness a little and adds a nice color. Sometimes I use smoked chicken or turkey (from the deli). I love lots of condiments, so I offer lime, green onions, cilantro, tortilla chips, cheese, black olives and/or diced red pepper. Makes a nice colorful presentation. My whole family loves this dish. Thanks for this tasty, healthy and easy recipe!

This was fabulous! I checked out several white chicken chili recipes before settling on this one. The sour cream and cream are what drew me in and what made it unique from the others. This was so good, my mouth is watering this morning just thinking about it. Like someone else I used ground turkey, out of ease. I substitued 1 of the 4 oz. cans of chilies for jalepenos and that made it ultra spicy- a little too spicy, will have to adjust that next time. I think I will stick with the 2 cans of chilies as written and then taste as I go using more cayenne pepper to spice it up. I also added some cilantro and about a tbl. of lime juice which I recomend, the flavors blended nicely. We served it over fritos and topped it with jack cheese. So yummy! Thank you!!

This chili was excellent! I used 2 cloves of minced fresh garlic and 1/2 tsp garlic powder. Also, I added one can of creamed corn and one can of diced chilis and tomatoes (hot) instead of the 2 cans of diced green chiles. I added 1 extra can of chicken broth as well. I served it with Fritos corn chips. Thanks Renita!

WE all really liked this chili. I made a few - but slight changes. I used "real" garlic instead of powdered and I added cannelini beans - just one can because I have a "beanaphobic" in my family. I also added a half a teaspoon of cumin - just because I like it. Everything else stayed the same and I served it with shredded Monterey Jack and tortilla chips.Every last bit was eaten. Next time I think I'll add a can of hominy to make up for the bean reduction. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

I've never tried white chili, but I'm going to try this one. Sounds great. If you are trying to omit the cream and sour cream and want to thicken the chili try reserving some of the beans and mash or puree them. They should add some amount of thickness back to the chili. I'm so glad its fall and I'll be trying this one soon. Thank you.

WAY yum. It seemed like it was going to be too runny, but as it cooled a bit it thickened up to just the right consitency. Also, we used ground turkey instead and that was a perfect match for this dish. Will definently be making again!

This was a most delicious dish! I added a can of white corn, and used a packet of McCormick's White Chicken Chili spices, to add more flavor. To cut down in fat, I used low-fat sour cream and omitted the whipping cream...it was absolutely wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!

This was really delicious. I was concerned that it wouldn't taste much like chili without cumin, but made it as per the recipe. The only thing I changed up was doing one can of mild green chilies and one can of hot green chilies to add a little heat. It was perfect. I could see cumin adding a little depth, but not necessary for good flavor. Bravo!

Wonderful recipe packed with flavor. I especially like that there are no bouillon cubes in this one - i'm trying to cut down on salt. I made this recipe as is and loved it! Thanks for sharing!
