"This is a white chili, using leftover cooked turkey or chicken, with a nice spicy kick. This is strickly a white chili, no tomatoes, red beans, or chili powder of any kind."

"This turned out really good ! I served it with Cornbread. The family was surprised to see a "white" chili and were pleasantly surprised with the taste. they enjoyed the "kick" aspect =)"
"Had this for lunch today using leftover chicken breast. We liked it. However, the consistency was more like soup, so we added a cornstarch slurry to thicken it up a bit. I used 2 (4 oz) cans of diced green chilies since I didnt have any jalapenos. I think the chili would be improved by adding fresh chopped cilantro. I topped with smoked cheddar cheese. This was certainly fast and easy with minimal prep required. Thanks."
"This was excellent, the only changes I made were to use paprika instead of cayenne and subbed 1 tsp. of marjaram for the cumin. Also, simmered for 1+ hours and I added fresh cilantro in at the very end. Scrumptious! Will be making this whenever leftover turkey is around."
"Best thing that ever happened to leftover turkey! Thank You..."
"Just made this, nearly "as written' just backed off on the amount of broth and only had one can of white beans.... very very good. I could eat the whole pot!"
"We really enjoyed this recipe. I used some leftover smoked turkey. Per other comments, I added some cilantro, lime and made a roux to thicken it up. I also added a bit of leftover gravy."
"I used half the amount of chicken broth indicated and omitted the cayenne peppper. Topped with sour cream, it was delicious"
"This was GREAT!! I used turkey and added 1 cup of milk to the sauce trying to make it more of a "chili" consistencey - not sure that it worked- but it was still very tasty. I also used a few dashes of hot sauce for the jalapeno and chili peppers. We ate this over white rice and I forgot the cheese (oops!). Thank you so much for sharing!!"
"We absolutely LOVED this. A few changes, though. We had a couple red peppers - not sure what kind - they looked like red jalapeÃ±os. Anyway, we threw two of those in, chopped, and those were the only peppers we added. We forgot all of the spices! We used one big can of white beans NOT drained, a full box of chicken broth, and added a big handful of frozen corn. To serve, we crunched up a bunch of tortilla chips and poured the soup over them, then topped it all with chopped cilantro and lots of cheese, and more chips as desired. Now I know what we will do every day after roasting a whole chicken! Thanks!"
"Very tasty recipe. Loved to use that turkey I had in the freezer. I only used 1 can of beans. Didn'r have any green chilies so I added 1 cup of hot salsa. Also I had a few veggies (carrots & green beans) left over so I added them. This was enjoyed with a salad along side. Thanks for posting"
"What a great way to use up leftover chicken! This is a keeper. Nice flavor, and so easy to make."
"This was a great way to use that chicken in the freezer! Very tasty and not too spicy. I also left out the cheese so it was more like a soup but it's definitely in my keeper file. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Loved this one. The only thing I modified was eliminating the cayenne and I used a dash of jalapeno powder I picked up in New Mexico. Since we are trying to slim down after the holidays, I also skipped adding the cheese so it was more like a soup. Very good!"
"This is really good! I used leftover turkey in it. I will make it again, but for our tastes, I will omit the cayenne pepper. It was really spicy for us!!! I added some heavy cream to tone it down a bit. Thanks!"
"Pretty good chili; good use of leftover turkey. Added only 1 can of jalapenos since that's what we had but it still had a good amount of heat to it for us. Thanks for posting!"
"Excellent. Reminded me of a posole (without the hominy). Will absolutely make again."
"Very good. I cut down a bit on the spice by not using the can of jalapeno pepper while keeping everything else the same, and it was a nice amount of heat for us. Thanks!"
"This was delicious, and so quick and simple to make. I had more beans than turkey, so I adjusted those amounts slightly. In fact, I may make this again using only beans! Did not have monterey jack, but I can imagine how it would enhance the flavor. I did stir in some sour cream, and that really made the dish come alive. Thank you for sharing!"
"Excellent! I'll make this even when I don't have leftover turkey or chili. Very easy, too."
