This chili is as easy as YOU want it to be... use all canned items if you prefer...throw in some cut up rotisserie chicken or cooked cubed chicken - whatever you want, We grilled chicken a few night before I made this so, I made sure to save enough for chili!! We love this as its got the right amount of spice and kick that warms you up on a cool Fall day! I do use my own home-canned products in this but, I understand that most folks won't have ALL the canned items that I make... My home canned chicken stock, and tomatoes are lower in sodium then the stores too...as well I make my own condensed soup as its quick and easy and I see what goes IN to my version! When it comes to the beans in this recipe - I do use Kuner's White Chili Beans (in chili sauce) you add those into the pot - undrained... White Chicken Chili seems to be popular these days but, has been around for a long long long time. I serve this chili with homemade cornbread and a side salad for Dinner. ~Enjoy! Diane
