This was awesome! My hubby, the chili fanatic, said this is the best chili ever. I used some kind of dried white bean i had rather than cannellinis (i don't know what those are anyway) and made it in the crockpot, and it was fabulous. Seems healthy too!

This was OK. Nothing exciting really...I used fresh green chile's instead, about 3 to 4 medium sized ones, not too sure if that made it a bit spicy for me. Overall, the flavor isn't really worth the amount of time you put into it.
