    Made this chili for a teacher appreciation lunch at school, and ended up with lots of requests for the recipe, which I was happy to provide as it was new to me! I used cans of Kroger mixed beans (black, pinto kidney), a roasted bbq chicken from the deli, and put the lime juice directly in the chili. Outstanding!

    This was a delicious chili. It was pretty simple to make (especially if you use the rotisserie chicken). Hint: Look for the McCormick spice packet in the bean aisle of your local grocery. . . not the spice aisle). I would definitely make it again. I used Heineken for the beer and felt like it was a good complement for the chili.

    This is a delicious chili that I have made several times. It is somewhat spicy but not overly so, easy to make, and keeps well for a couple of days. Good for family or an informal gathering like a football game viewing party. Make sure to have plenty of the toppings on hand as they complement the chili well. I use low fat greek yoghurt in place of the sour cream and it is delicious!

    Pretty easy! I substituted with things I already had: chipotles in adobo sauce instead of poblano, green bell pepper instead of red, Rotel instead of chili-style tomatoes, kidney beans instead of navy. I also added corn. It was super spicy, but delicious!

    I've made this twice. A winner - the toppings really make it. To turn down the spice, I substitute one can of the chili-spiced tomatoes with a small can of tomato sauce. It's still very flavorful, and my husband spends less time picking out the tomato pieces (he's not a tomato man). We eat this with cornbread. I would serve this for casual company any time, but it's also simple enough for a weeknight.

    This is a delicious chili recipe! My husband and our guests thought the heat was just right. I used shredded turkey from our local bar-b-que restaurant to make it easy on myself, and it worked really well with turkey. The toppings are perfect additions. Will make it again and again.

    This is a great recipe and what a life saver when you have purchased chicken left over. I did add about 10 Chocolate chips at the end and I did garnish with sour cream and cilantro..... I also added 2 packages of Sazon and cumin

    Made this, exactly as directed, for a Chili Cook-Off. It was on the spicy side, and I like spicy. I didn't win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, but my Mexican girlfriend said pot #7 was one of her favorites of the table. So I'd say it's a winner.

    This chili is easy but unique and delicious. I substituted one can of corn for the navy beans and garnished with cilantro and sour cream. Yum! On a side note, it was a little too spicy for the children.

    Very good chicken chili; I served with cornbread instead of tortilla chips. My store did not have the white chicken chili seasoning packet, so I subbed w/ chicken taco seasoning mix and added cumin and chipotle chile powder. I wil keep this in my fall/winter chili rotation.

    This was delicious! I did make a few adjustments: I added 1 pound of ground turkey and two jalapeno peppers and sauteed along with the veggies. I used a bottle and a half of Abita Purple Haze beer, half of a can of yellow and white shoepeg corn and I added a teaspoon of cocoa powder, cayenne and chili pepper and salt and pepper to taste. Served with corn bread and suggested garnish.. yum!!

    My family loved it! My husband wasn't too happy I used his last beer, but he soon got over it. I'll double the recipe next time for leftovers.
