YuM! Added baby brown bella crimini, garbonzo beans, white northern, hominy extra spices and more cayanne. Based on other reviews I smooshed light kidney beans, did use all the broth and added salt and simmered down. The peppers are a winner, will make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty, I haven't changed 1 thing in this recipe. My family is changing into healthy eating life style. So I'm looking for healthy versions of things we love. This light white chilli not only WASN'T watery, it was very flavorful, with perfect amount of spices (including coriander). I did serve it with small dollop of plain, fat free greek yogurt, cilantro. Very satisfying meal. Thank you Ellie!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing! I love, love, love this soup! I did substitute roasted chicken breast (cubed) for the ground turkey, subbed corn for the hominy and added a jalapeño. I also added fresh spinach. I pureed some of the beans to make the soup a little thicker. This recipe is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing, a must make! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good. My husband really liked it, but I agree with the others in that it was somewhat bland and watery. I was surprised at this because of all the spices. I would substitute sweet corn for the bland hominy and purée some of the beans to make it thicker. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was a hit in our household. We did add jalapeno peppers and chile powder to give a kick. The call for hominy was a pleasant surprise in this chile recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very tasty! I did make some minor changesone additional hot pepper, some chili powder, some more cumin, less cayenne, and fresh corn instead of hominy. Like other reviewers suggested, I also pureed some of the beans to create a thicker chili. Would still decrease the liquid by a half cup or more next time. Thanks, Ellie! You never disappoint. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So tasty! I added chopped jalapeño peppers and extra garlic. i also pureed about 1/2 cup of beans and homily mix to add thickness to the chili. My family loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family found this bland and watery, very disappointing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic recipe! I didn't have hominy on hand so used canned corn instead. Has a bit of heat so not ideal for young kids (at least mine is a 3 yr old but the parents loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just okay. Probably won't make again, but if I do, will use shredded smoked turkey for more flavor, and canned chiles for a bit of their salty brine. Reduced broth to 3 1/2 c. thanks to reviewers, so the consistency was nice and chili-like. Added more cumin & cayenne plus some white pepper, and some sweet corn, but the flavor was still lacking, one-dimensional I'm sorry to say. I still don't understand how all these ingredients produced such a flat flavor? The yogurt+lime+cilantro topping; however, was awesome! And I liked the hominy, so won't ever be shy about using it again. I'll be trying Giada's and Paula Deen's next, on my winter's quest for a tasty white chili ... item not reviewed by moderator and published
So...just made this chili for the first time. YUMMY!! However, I will agree with other reviews, very soupy - even with just using 2 1/2 c. broth. I tried to find Masa Harina, to no avail. So I added corn meal during the last 10 min of cooking. Perfect! Also added more cumin, coriander, and cayenne pepper, and a little seasoned salt - I prefer more on the spicy side. But overall...very delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband protested my making this for days, "white chili, I don't like white things like that", blah, blah, blah. After three days of eating other things, I just made it and he regrets having me wait, it is great! Thanks to the poster who used tamale masa for thickening, it works perfect. I mixed it with broth and added until I was happy with the consistency. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious. Leftovers are even better. I garnish mine with cilantro, lemon juice and sour cream. Served with cornbread. I was a little skeptical about trying the hominy but it went well with the other flavors. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been using "The Pioneer woman's," Chilli recipe and wanted to use ground turkey and a healthier side of Chilli. Finding this recipe was a great choice. I followed the recipe, but made a few changes according to what I had handy, but I have to admit I did buy the poblano peppers which I think is a must. I used 3 cups of low sodium vegetable broth and used white corn instead of hominy and used kidney beans instead of the cannelini beans. Aside of using cayenne pepper I also added 1/8 tsp of ancho Chilli powder and to thicken it as one previous post suggested I used 1/4 cup masa flour moistened with water to thicken the Chilli and it gives a nice corn taste to the Chilli. Also I pulsed the garlic, onion, peppers in a food processor. Must try this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have won the same chili cook-off for 2 years now with this recipe! It is easy and very yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So simple and tasty. Nice to have a chili that isn't tomato-based for a change. Like some others I like chili a little thicker so I cut the broth to 3 cups and added masa to thicken. You stir a couple of tablespoons of masa with just enough water to moisten it and add it to the chili in the last 10 minutes or so. Thanks for the great easy recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe; rich, complex flavors! I made it exactly as written except for the hominy. Instead I added some pre-cooked rice from a white/wild rice blend. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this recipe! I did change it a bit though. I used cut up chicken breast instead of ground turkey. I'm planning on making this recipe again after thanksgiving and adding the leftover turkey to the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! I do wish it was a little less "soupy" though. I also add a little bit more cumin due to personal preference. For people that are having a hard time finding hominy, it is in the bean aisle usually a few feet down. Happy Eating! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very yummy. My hubby and I loved it. Will definitely put this on the keeper list. The changes I made were using four stalks of celery instead of two, four cloves of garlic instead of one because we love garlic, and we did not add hominy and only added two and a half cups of chicken stock because otherwise it would have been a soup and not a chili. We also didn't add any of the extra toppings to it like yogurt, etc. Just ate as is when it was done. It was still delicious and flavorful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent recipe. Wonderful flavor. This is the recipe that started me using pablano peppers. I use them in many dishes now. I substitute cubed chicken breast or thighs. I also top it with Colby and Monterrey jack cheese. This is a wonderful warm meal for a cold or rainy evening. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really good and super easy! my only substitutions were green pepper for poblano and corn for hominy as I couldn't get these where I live. The only thing I would change next time, is to take one can of beans and some of the ch.broth and pulse in my food processor before adding to the pot. This gives the dish a creamier base, less broth like. And I lost a pound last night!! Thanks Ellie! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We really loved this as with anything, your own tweaks make it. I too prefer a thicker consistency so I let it simmer down with the lid fully off. We are spicy freaks so I added 2 finely chopped habaneros (seeded of course and a serrano with seeds. At first it seemed almost too hot, but in the bowl with cheese, sour cream and cilantro, it was great for us. Could not find hominy, and used northern white beans as that's what I like. It does seem to need a lot more seasoning than called for here, I like a major flavor bomb. Also put in a tsp of Worcestershire. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was totally delicious and was enjoyed by my entire family. I added a little more cumin than the recipe said due to personal preference. I used No Sodium chicken broth and dried beans to make this dish nearly sodium free. Fortunately, this dish was not short on taste. The most refreshing part of the dish was the yogurt, cilantro and lime. It balanced the chili out nicely. Great, fresh tasting dish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
With a lot of "healthy" recipes, I find myself qualifying them by saying, "That was good......for a healthy recipe". Not with this chili. It's good - period! The name may be somewhat misleading since it has more of a soup consistency but that hardly matters. It's packed with flavors and textures and has just the right amount of kick to it. The only thing I'm on the fence about is the hominy. I liked it but I may substitute another can of beans for it next time. Oh and once the chili's done, remove from heat and toss in a handful of chopped cilantro. It's a great fresh finishing touch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the first recipe of Ellie's that I've tried and it is superb. It's fast, easy, and inexpensive to make, and a pot will last several days. It's just wonderful and doesn't taste healthy at all. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Nice change of pace if your sick of the regular chili. Deep complex flavors, and while it's "healthy" it still has that cozy comforting feeling. What more could you want from a chili? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wholesome and Healthy!! Chopping in fresh Cilantro in each bowl before eating is so pleasant!! The children put a dab of fat free sour cream in it .... loving every bite of it! Thank you for the wonderful share! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I try to always work with different recipes, but this is one I keep coming back to over and over again! Its such a unique tasting chili.. I can never get enough. Dont let the 'intermediate' rating fool you either, its very simple. I would agree with some other users to mush up 1/2 a can of the beans to add some thickness as this does tend to be a soupier chili. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe exactly as is. I found poblano peppers at Whole Foods. It was absolutely delicious! The portion size was perfect to make it a meal and I'm sitting here quite content. Definitely a winner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVE it! I had never made white chili before, This is now my favorite! I like mine with a little kick, so I will add a jalapeno or serano next time, I was afraid to go too crazy with the cayenne. I was leary about hominy as I have never been a fan, but it was good in this dish. I like my chili a bit soup like, but agree with a few reviews that it would be a good idea to make slurry with one of the cans of beans. I did this as a dry run for a chili cookoff at work, I will make it again tomorrow with some of the tweaks and hope I can win the cookoff, especially since no one has ever made white chili. Thanks Ellie! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is awesome! My family is trying to eat healthier and this really fits the bill. The only thing I did differently was used two 7 oz. cans of diced green chilies instead of the poblanos. There's never a problem eating all the leftovers with this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe and so did my family! My daughters asked for it in their school lunches. I used leftover smoked turkey and only used 1 poblano chili to keep it more 'kid-friendly.' The smoky infusion from the turkey and gentle heat from the poblano created a lovely dish for a chilly winter night!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Surprisingly good, I was skeptical. I didn't use that much poblano and added more garlic. It was a littly "soupy" but I mashed some of the beans to help with consistency. I enjoyed it over lime flavored tortilla chips topped with cilantro and cheese. Even better leftover! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent taste and texture! Didnt have chic broth so i used water and bumped up seasonings and it was great. My family loved it and asked me to make it again. Thanks Ellie for another winner! Aod item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing! Another wonderful, tasty, healthy recipe from Ellie. I did reduce the chicken broth to about 2.5 cups because I like my chili a bit thicker and tripled the coriander and cumin. My husband, who's not in to "healthy" food, said it was delicious. This is going to be one of my go-to recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh Man! Fine Chili! Love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful! Our store did not have the poblano chilis so I used one anaheim chili and a half of a jalapeno....I also did add salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This has to be the best tasting white chili I have ever eaten!!! Thank you Ellie Krieger : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious. I will make again and again. A little soup-like but the yogurt, lime and cilantro somehow mask this. Even better the next day and thicker. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading reviews, I was expecting a chili that would blow my mind. It ended up being just a "good" chili. I followed the recipe as is and think I prefer the traditional red chili. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used left over turkey instead of raw nd it was fabulous. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow!! Absolutely amazing. The combination of flavors is perfect. It is a must though, to top with the yogurt, cilantro, and lime; this is the real kicker. Great dish : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good chili. I take out some of it and put it in a separate pot before I add the spicy stuff. My husband likes it really spicy but the rest of us do not. I broil the poblanos and then put it in a brown paper bag to "sweat" to take the skin off and add a smoky taste to it. Yum. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love the chili and will certainly make this one again! Thanks Ellie for another great healthy and delicious recipe! I made it exactly per the recipe. Agree with another reviewer that made cornbread to go with it. Perfect fall/winter dinner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this chili! I sometimes substitute chicken for the turkey and diced green chilis for the poblanos, still delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best chili I have tasted or even made! As with all of Ellie's recipes, it was straight forward and once finished, I couldn't stop eating it. I can't wait to make it for a tailgate event. My husband asks for this dish all the time in the Fall and Winter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My go to white chili recipe. I've been making it for 3 years now. I absolutely love this recipe!! Delicious healthy spin on chili. Its different than most chili recipes, another reason I love it. The depth of flavor is amazing!! And its healthy too!! Win win! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this dish! I have made it several times as well as I brought it to a super bowl party last year. It was a huge hit. I make it with ground chicken breast instead of turkey. I like the taste of chicken better then the occasional gamy taste from the turkey. My family loves it when I make this dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. Did not use the yogurt or lime but it was great. Even my kids (6 & 8 liked it. It could use a little thickening (and I will probably do something to make that happen next time, but the flavors are fabulous. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent, very hearty, love the lime juice and yogurt on top really brings all the flavors together. I've been making this a several years now Ellie this is a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is mighty tasty. I only used 2.5 cups of chicken stock since pretty much everyone said it was too soupy and it turned out great. I used 2 yellow chili peppers and 2 jalapenos instead of poblanos because that's what I had in the fridge and I like spicy. So no cayenne... it was hot enough! LOVED the hominy idea. I never would've thought of that. I'll probably be adding that to my regular chili as well. But hey, maybe with a few tweaks this will become a regular of mine too : Also, I used diced leftover chicken from a roast chicken instead of ground turkey. Turned out pretty well. It still feels like it's missing something... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't like white chili. That said, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this white chili!!! I made the recipe exactly as written with only two changes. I used whole cumin and coriander, toasted first in a dry frying pan and then ground in my molcajete. 2t whole cumin ground down to 1t. 1t coriander ground down to 1/2t. Also, my grocery store had no 15.5 oz cans of hominy so I used an entire 29 oz can. Came out fabulous. Some other comments said they felt the chili was soup-like, not thick. The rinsed, drained hominy thickened the chili nicely. Sauce-like not soupy. Liked the cilantro garnish. Although I might use lime as a garnish again, I will not squeeze it into the chili again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I chose this recipe based on the five star rating, but I ended up being very disappointed. It seems that the liquid ratio is off because mine turned out very very dry. The recipe calls for coriander but unless you have a taste for this I would leave it out - its a very distinctive flavor that over-powers the other spices. I used all fresh ingredients from the farmers market and organic ground turkey. I would not make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was ok. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars. One clove of garlic is not enough. I added 2 but feel with the amount of beans and turkey, it needs at least 3. Also, it seemed more like a thick soup then a chili. If I make this again, I will take a half can of the cannellini beans and puree with some chicken broth to make a slurry. It really needed to be thickened up a bit. Chili made with ground chicken and a tomato base is better tasting and still healthy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Definitely a delicious recipe! I made some cornbread croutons and added them in at the end as well and it was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved the extra touches of cilantro, lime juice and yogurt on top. This is such a fresh and filling healthy dish. We will definitely have again and again. We kicked it up a bit by adding a chopped jalapeno pepper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great! change from red chili, I like doubling the cumin, You have to season it to your own liking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made a vegetarian version of this for a pot luck!!! (leaving out the turkey and using different kinds of white beans and the hominy) It came out fantastic! Everyone lovedddd it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love love love this recipe. The only thing I do differently is make a slurry out of Masa and water to thicken the broth. Makes it thicker plus adds mucho flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good if you're in the mood for a light chili. The lime and greek yogurt are a must, though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious!!! Thanks Ellie for this hearty & healthy chili. I'm not usually a fan of white Chili's, but my husband and I loved this. I did have a hard time finding hominy, I think if you live in the south its easier to find. I topped with avocado slices along with the cilantro, yogurt, and lime!!! Can't wait for leftovers!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this chili, find myself craving it. I did make a couple changes. I substituted one poblano with a red bell pepper for color and added a hot pepper (jalapeno-like) from a neighbor's garden. I also added some smoked paprika (~ 1/2 tsp.) for added flavor. Did find the chili a little thin, so I pureed a third can of beans and added it. This thickened the chili nicely. I am now wondering about adding some tomatillos, think I'll give that a try next time. Thanks Ellie, I've had great success with your recipes that I've tried! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband said this recipe was a keeper. Even my brother loved it and went back for seconds. I wonder if he knew ground turkey was in it. I didn't tell...I made Ellie's Fried Rice with Scallions, Edamame and Tofu last night. It was a keeper as well. Keep those delicious recipes coming Ellie. You are such an inspiration. I found this recipe on the other cooking channel where I could not find any reviews (or did I miss them there?) So, I come back to this website before I make the recipe to see what other people thought or changes they may have made. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very good but I did use half white ground chicken breast and half ground dark chicken, just for more flavor and honestly, it probably didn't even need it. The chili was super flavorful on it's own and I'm sure it's even better today. You know how chili always seems to be better the day after you make it. My hands are hurting from the Poblanos though. The winter makes my hands dry and the spice from the Poblanos irritated them for hours. I never knew Poblanos had some heat to them. Perfect heat though, not spicy like a jalapeno! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a DELICIOUS recipe - don't feel constrained to follow the amounts of the ingredients exactly as it's listed...you can't really mess it up...love veggies? Add more! It is one of my absolute favorite soups to make - my husband LOVES it (a year ago he wouldn't eat soup at all!) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is my new favorite soup!! The broth has such a great flavor, which I think can be credited to the hominy of all things. I wasn't expecting to love this as much as I did, I was just looking for a quick dinner idea. I will definitely be making it again and again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! It is one of my all-time favorite soup recipes. I made a couple changes and made it with shredded chicken instead of turkey and it turned out great.

This is FANTASTIC. We thought it was the best white chili we had ever eaten. Most white chili's don't have too much flavor. This was perfect for our taste. This is good enough to even feed guests!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fabulous. I roasted the poblanos and then peeled and diced them. I doubled the recipe but didn't have enough poblanos so I put in a small can of chilies. I didn't have hominy so I put in canned corn. Other than that, absolutely wonderful recipe!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I loved it. Used left over cubed turkey breat insyead of ground turkey. Also did not have ground coriander, so used 1 T chili powder, and added a diced jalepeno and a bay leaf. Omitted the hominy as I'm always looking to decrease carbs. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is fantastic, love all the flavors together. Easy to make. The yogurt really sets it off. Next time, I'll add the lime & fresh cilantro). item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! Just make sure to wear gloves when cutting the poblano peppers -- my hands burned for 10 hours afterwards since I cut them bare handed, even though I washed my hands and soaked them in milk multiple times...oh well. It was worth the meal...very tasty, and my husband loved it! This recipe makes quite a lot, and we've eaten it for 2 meals already. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have been making this for over a year and I absolutely love it! I haven't changed a thing because Ellie has it mastered! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! Had to adjust the amount of coriander and cumin, used chipotle powder instead of the cayenne pepper, and threw in a chopped jalapeno for added intensity of flavor. The yogurt, cilantro and lime add the most amazing depth of flavor. I know this is supposed to be a healthier version of chili, but could not resist crumbling some tortilla chips and adding a tiny bit of Monterey Jack over the whole thing: A tear rolled down my cheek in culinary pleasure! Will make this over and over again. Thanks, Ellie! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this. I made it during a weekend of soup making and had it two days in a row. I will make again very soon and freeze for the winter. Using organic ground turkey make me feel a lot better about my choice. item not reviewed by moderator and published

sometimes I use left over chicken but everyone loves this chili! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy! I love to try new recipes and loved this one. You definitely need to serve with the yogurt and lime because if not, the chili will taste like it is missing a layer of flavor. My infant and toddlers inhaled this, which I was very surprised about. And, more importantly, my husband said, this is different, but I love it! Can't get better than that. I did substitute green chilies for the poblanos since my grocery store didn't have any in stock and it was still great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was absolutely delicious! I do agree with the other reviewer who said it wasn't the prettiest dish but who cares because it tastes great. Plus, the cilantro, yogurt, and lime wedges at the end did add a nice touch! I had never cooked with poblano peppers before but I was glad I did- they were delish! I re-heated this for lunch/dinner for the next couple of days and it tasted just as good reheated as it did freshly made. Definitely a keeper and you must make this! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't use the Poblano peppers as I don't like anytihing hot, I replaced with green peppers. My Husband's comment: " that was pretty daggone good" and " that recipe is difinantly a keeper recipe"! I will be fixing White Chili again! Thanks Ellie! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I substituted 2 leftover chicken breasts for the ground turkey. I cut it into chunks and them slow cooked everything in my crock pot! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Did a little ingredient swapping due to availability: Had a ton of roasted turkey breast leftover so used that in place of the ground turkey - added it when I added the broth Couldn't find poblanos so used 2 jalepenos Couldn't find hominy so used canned corn Didn't have coriander so omitted it AND IT WAS DELICIOUS. Cooked up quick with tons of flavor. LOVE what the lime and cilantro did for it as a finish - wouldn't leave that out. It's more a cross between chili and broth soup but that doesn't bother me. This one's a keeper and a great way to use up extra turkey/chicken that you have around as leftovers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this last night for dinner and the family loved it! Very easy and very tasty. My older daughter does not care for leftovers but she had some more today for lunch. Its great to have a recipe that is not only tasty but good for us too. Thanks Ellie! item not reviewed by moderator and published

The snow is falling and the inside of my home smells like I never want to leave, this chili smells so good. I had a turkey breast to use up and used it with the recipe this time. I have also used the ground. Can not wait. Thank you item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband gets this look on his face whenever I tell him I have a recipe that I am trying from food network. He is a meat and potatoes type that resists anything that isn't standard fare--- "Turkey is for Thanksgiving" and such comments are common my house, but I cook on. And this time we have a winner. I still have try cooking the whole recipe on the stove ( let my slow cooker do most of my work), but I bet it is every bit as good. I ran into the same problem that one of the other reviewers did; apparently pablano peppers are a little to progressive for my small town stores so I replace the pablanos with a green bell pepper and 2 jalapenos to achieve around the same heat and amount of pepper. We are a garlic loving family so I took the garlic up to 4 large clove. I don't remember having put coriander in any other dish I have made, but this is a wonderful spice-don't leave it out. If you decide to make this in the slow cooker you still need to saute the onions, peppers, and garlic; put in the spices, and cook the turkey a bit so that it has some color to it. Put all the rest of the ingredients except the hominy in to the slow cooker. Leave the hominy out until a couple of hours before you are ready to serve. I cooked this on low for about 8 hours. Works good for work or church potlucks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for dinner tonight and it got rave reviews, even more than my traditional chili recipe. I will definitely make this again. I did use a little more garlic and plenty of cayenne, but otherwise stuck to the recipe, and it turned out great. I did simmer uncovered to boil off some of the liquid. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made two batches of this tonight; one for my new husband and myself and another for my parents. Absolutely delicious! I decreased the chicken broth to 2 cups per recipe so it has more of the chili consistency vs brothy soup. Kicked it up a notch by stirring in 1 tablespoon of Frank's Hot Sauce, few sprinkles of tobasco sauce and a tsp of sour cream to the chili itself. Am sure it would be fine tho without doctoring it up if you like it mild and more soup-like. Agree that the garnishes add the right touch to the dish, Topped the bowls with a dollop of sour cream, fresh cilantro, lime wedge (no, don't leave it out), and crushed tortilla chips for crunch,. Served with Aunt Jemima corn bread and honey. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe exactly except I used Jalapeno peppers instead of the Poblano (I could not find the Poblano peppers at my local grocery store or the Mexican grocery store.) It was the first time I have used Greek yogurt and I was surprised at how much it tasted like regular sour cream. I used the lime. My husband absolutely loves this recipe and I do too. I will make this again and again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I would give this recipe a ten star rating. I followed it without any subsititutes. I did not use lime. It was easy to make, with a heart healthy food that had alot of flavor, tecture. It helped me with a filling food that kept me satisfied. Another bonus is it is glutten free. My husband, who really loves tomatoe-based red meat chili, said he was surprised at how it tasted better than any chili he had ever eaten. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This chili tasted great, I agree with other comments in that the lime is necessary. I couldn't find poblano peppers at the store so I used 2 serranos and one can of Rotel (tomatoes and green chilis). I loved the hominy and actually added a little more than the recipe calls for. I used sour cream instead of yogurt at the end and also added tabasco sauce. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is wonderful! I did substitute chicken thigh meat for the turkey as that is what I had to work with. Not too spicy, not bland at all! I didn't use low sodium chicken broth as per a previous review that stated it still needed salt after cooking. Will make again, soon!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is definitely our new favorite Chicken Chili recipe. It is healthy and flavorful! We did top this chili with shredded jack cheese and a little sour cream, in addition to the cilantro and lime. Surprisingly, the lime makes the dish.....don't leave it out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The whole family enjoyed this. I omitted the peppers and used a small can of green chiles instead. Also left out the coriander and added an extra 1/2 tsp of Cumin. It was PERFECT! Served it over steamed rice, topped it with sourcream and shredded jack. Along side some garlic cheese toast...perfect for a cold night! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used Jenny O's taco seasoned grount turkey in this, reduced the chicken broth to two cans, and the result was perfect. I had never used hominy before in my life, but I'm glad I did. I've also made it subbing 2 cans of roasted green chilis for the poblano peppers, and it turned out just as tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
