    Too much salt! The recommended seasoning mix is mostly salt and there is salt in the broth. Would be better with a list of herbs and spices instead of the mix.

    Use low-sodium broth, and season and grill the chicken before shredding. When sautéing onions, brown them a bit more to develop flavor. Also, bloom the seasoning with the browned onions and chiles. Highly recommend making the salsa - it's an excellent accompaniment. Outstandingly easy and delicious recipe, will definitely add it to our list of great weeknight dishes.

    Excellent and easy. Especially liked salsa that accompanied the chili---sweet and salty.

    I always use low sodium broth so I didn't run into the salt problem. I did do a variation in that I used a can each of red kidney beans, black beans, and navy beans (the navy beans were the can of beans that I smashed up). I also used a can of tomatoes and chilies instead of just the chilies (because they were on sale). I also lightly drained everything that was in a can. Overall, it was a great bowl of chili that my household has thoroughly enjoyed and has asked for again. Although, my version wasn't very "white" I think it was close enough : )

    GREAT recipe. I followed it to completely except pureeing the 3rd can of beans. Next time I will drain that can before pureeing for a little more thickness to the chili. I used a whole rotisserie chicken from Costco - about 18 ounces of shredded chicken and more than 4 cups. The combination of jack cheese/salsa and chili was fabo! No sour cream needed.

    I loved this, easy, tasty and really good! I used the salsa idea provided and really loved it. It was a huge hit with the family and one pot lasted for four days. Made some jalapeño cornbread to go with it since the chili is not super spicy, just the right amount of heat.

    DELICIOUS!! Especially topped with Monterrey Jack cheese and diced avocado...YUM! Highly recommend recipe as is.

    This is delicious! I sauteed the onions and garlic and then just threw all of the ingredients into the crock pot for a couple of hours. It came out a little more like a soup than a chili, but I loved it that way! I also used low sodium chicken broth, and didn't find the soup to be too salty. The diced avocado on top is a nice touch.

    Great recipe! I made it exactly according to the directions and it was fantastic. A healthy, fast option to add into my weeknight rotation.

    Super simple and quite tasty! I didn't even need the third can of beans...thought it would have made it too thick! Will try the salsa idea next time!

    Delicious! It was so easy to make. I used a store cooked rotisserie chicken so it made cooking this after work super easy and fast. I also forgot to cut up one can of the beans. Really good dish. I also served it with brown rice.
