the soup/chili looks yummy, i do have a problem using canned anything….
so, are these navy beans? or the Italian white bean cannelini?
Any white beans would be nice, but I would use cannelini or White Northern beans.
We use a lot of Busc’s Beans, especially during the winter.
Your site is gorgeous and this chili looks amazing! So filling!
Oh, thank you!
Do you feel that the dried cilantro adds much flavor?
I do, but I like cilantro. If you don’t care for cilantro you can delete it. You can substitute parsley for it as well.
As an FYI, this is not vegetarian. Bush’s White Chili Beans contain chicken base. I’ve tried this recipe and it’s delicious, but it’s not vegetarian.
Chicken base is not listed in the ingredients. Is it part of the “natural flavor?”
Does this chili freeze well?
I have not frozen it before, but I think it should freeze well.
THIS RECIPE IS NOT VEGETARIAN!! The beans contain chicken base which I didn’t realize till I was recycling the cans. Wasted my time making this soup that I will not eat.
Nowhere does is say that this recipe is vegetarian. I did say that it is meatless. To make it more clear, I added a note to the recipe stating that while this recipe is meatless, it is NOT vegetarian.
