    I put half the beans in a blender first, then continued with recipe. Really delicious. Will be making again!

    It was ok....on the thin side. Next time I will take some tips from others and mash some of the beans to thicken and add more veggies like corn.

    Best White Bean Chili recipe! We topped ours with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and cubed fresh avocado. I did not cook the cilantro and just added it fresh. So good and 4 kid approved!

    This was soooo good! I only used one lime and half a jalapeño and it turned out perfect! The dollop of sour cream at the end really compliments the chili perfectly!

    Very good. Used diced jalapeño instead of green pepper, added red pepper and corn. Yum!

    This chili tastes incredible, hands down one of my favorite dishes to make.

    Good flavor, didn’t read the instructions clearly and used three quarts of beans rather than three cups. Would definitely try again

    It was great!!! Good recipe! Will definitely make it again! Oh! Instead of canned beans i used the dry kind. (soaked them overnight and all that)

    Easy to make with big bold flavors. I added additionally lime and cilantro, big fan of that flavor combo. For time sake I used already cooked rotisserie chicken. Definitely a go to any night of the week!!

    Go easy on the lime juice because otherwise it will be spicy but have a strong taste of lime. I added more chili powder than recommended and some more broth because I had more chicken and beans.

    Family loved it! I added some white rice and corn. That was a hit as well.

    Awesome, although it did take me and a half. I added fresh Colorado corn

    This was really good! I usually tweak a recipe but not needed for this one! I did mash the beans to make the stock a little thicker. And I eliminated the sour cream and cilantro as I’m not a fan. This will be on regular rotation.

    I did it on the Crock-Pot, and it was delicious. I didn't cook the onions or garlic ahead of time, and threw everything but the cilantro in at the same time and let it go for 2 hrs.

    For how very simple this recipe is, it's really interesting and delicious. I used a rotisserie chicken (and saved some chicken, didn't need to use it all). I also added a red bell pepper just for color. Skipped the sour cream to cut a few calories. Overall this recipe is perfectly easy, quick, spicy, and savory on a cold day.

    I thought it was wonderful! I used boneless thighs, no lime, no sour cream, no jalapenos but I did add lots of celery and it was delicious. Its a keeper!!
