I've been wanting to make some white chili all season. This sounds amazing. Love my slow cooker and can't wait to make this!

This chili was originally called Saucy Blonde Chili on Mr. Food a LONG time ago, and it called for ground pork. I made it that way once, but after than started using ground turkey. I double the amounts of cumin and chili powder, and also double the green chilies. The original recipe didn't have tomatoes in it either, and I've never used them. This chili is famous now with my family, they love it! I will try it sometime this way with the chicken and tomatoes.

A very good chicken chili. I used 3 cans of cannellini beans---5 just seemed like too much. For our tastes, 1 TABLESPOON of chili powder (not 1 teaspoon) gave about the right amount of heat/flavor.

I used white and red kidney, northern and cannellini beans -- delicious !

I used sliced can tomatoes instead of whole ones and Tyson grilled chicken breast torn into pieces. Then i cooked this all day in the crock pot. mmmmmmmmmmmmm!

I didn't make it with 5 cans of beans I used only two but this is a keeper!. It's very tasty. The only thing amiss was it took 2 hours instead of 1 but since we were not going anywhere there was no problem. I used no salt/sodium whole tomatos and chicken broth - to cut sodium level and calories.

I made the saucy white chili late one Sunday afternoon after my husband and I had been out most of the day. It was quick, easy, and delicious! I recommend it. Next time, though, I think I'd cut the recipe in half. It was too much for just two people. But if you'd like to share, most people would enjoy it!

Nikkiakiva 2487029 and everyone. I've made this chili several times...and yes, it is too much for 2 people at one time..but..this recipe freezes well. I tried it with Deer Meat and Smoked Sausage, too. It's awesome!!!

I love to make more so I can freeze the other half.
