White spicy Chili

"This was awesome! My 2 & 4-year-olds it was too hot, but my 6 and 8 year old LOVED it. I'm serious...so much flavor!!! I double the recipe because I had guests over, but the only thing I didn't double was the jalapinos, one can was perfect :)
Was actually a fast meal to put together because it didn't take brewing in the pot for a long time :)
Definately a keeper on our regular meal circuit!"

Very flavorful. Tasted like a Mexican soup which I definitely liked! I had cut cayenne in half but still found it a smidge to spicy that I couldn't finish my bowl. I served wheat flour tortillas on the side to help cool down the spices from the soup. Very good, will make again with some tweaking

This recipe is very flavorful, and perfect if you're on a budget and need to stretch a meal out over a few days. Personally, I would add a few more cans of beans, and cut the cayenne pepper way back to half tsp (for the little tykes)

I liked it. I should have read the comments before I made it though. Not kid friendly.

Overall I felt this recipe was very tasty. Although I made a few small adjustments. I used two cans of White Northern beans and one can of white lima beans. I also topped each bowl with srhiracha chili sauce, sour cream, cheese and chives.

Great recipe and I use left over turkey in my crock pot, had to keep it on high for 5 hours to soften beans. Should have pre-soak bean. Will be on my winter cooking list.
