I was looking for something warm and fairly fast for dinner tonight and saw this recipe! I had to make a few changes because I didn't want to make a trip to the store, but it was DELICIOUS!!!!!! Changes I made were: I used 1 can of white Chicken meat and one can of white Turkey in place of the 4 cups of cooked chicken, I used 2 tsp paprika and 2 tsp chili powder in place of the canned green chili's (I didn't have any on hand). I left out the Cayenne pepper because I thought it would be too spicy for my kids and I only used on can chicken broth and 3 cans of mixed variety beans (one can pinto, one light kidney and one red kidney) I also topped the bowls with more montery jack. I just used regular montery Jack because I didn't have pepper Jack (which is weird because I usually do!) This was DELICIOUS!! My husband said it tasted alot like the Ruby Tuesday White Chili. I've never had it so I didn't know. Anyway....thanks for sharing this recipe! I'll be using it again! It was a BIG HIT with my family!
