I don't know who Bob is and I haven't tried this; it was emailed to me by my SIL. Sounds good!

    I found this recipe a few years ago after hubby had some White Chicken Chili at one of our local Mexican restaurants. I've been making it since then and we love it. We like extra spicy food, so I often add a little extra cumin and/or cayenne pepper. Also, if I don't have the chopped green chilies I have substituted chopped fresh jalapenos more than once. I just cook them along with the onions and garlic and it turns out fine. I also sometimes break up tortilla chips and sprinkle them on top. It's very good, especially on cold, wintry days or when you have a cold. Nothing clears those sinuses quite like cayenne pepper and jalapenos! LOL

    Comfort food at its best! I put shredded monterey jack on top and served with cornbread. It was a big hit with the whole family! Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

    Family and I enjoyed this very much. To serve, I put broken tortilla chips in the bowl, added the chili and topped with shredded MJ cheese. Crazy delicious. Thanks for the post.

    This was wonderful. I didn't have the green chiles on hand but it was great without them. I did add some flour to thicken it up a little. Just my preference. Thanks for sharing!
