We enjoyed this thank you happynana. I don't own a crockpot, so cooked it from step 6 for half an hour then removed it from the heat and stirred the cheese through. I served it with a sprinkling of fresh coriander and a hot salsa. I added some corn to it along with the beans so please feel free to rearrange the phtos to show a truer representation of the recipe :-)
This is a wonderful white chili recipe! I do have to let you know though, that I did not read the recipe all the way through before I started it and so I had to alter the cooking slightly. My crock pot was already full, so I had to cook the chili on the stove. I simmered everything together about 2 hrs. and the flavors blended wonderfully. Even my DH who says chili is only made with beef enjoyed it. I will definitely be adding this to our keep file. Made as a recipenap for the 24th AUS/NZ swap.
I love white chili - so was excited to try yours for the Aussie/New Zealand swap! This made the whole house smell yummy. I didn't notice until after I had started making it that you use the crockpot for 4-6 hours. I think mine was in the crockpot for 3 or so. It still turned out wonderful!
