I skip the tomatillos (can't find them here) and use an extra can of green chiles instead. Make this recipe quite often as it's so simple to throw together.

Great recipe! It is spicy but has a great depth of flavor.We loved it.It is so versatile because you can add corn, or change the beans to pinto, kidney or black beans. I used tomatillo sauce.You can add a dollop of sour cream to your bowl to cool your palate. A definite keeper for our family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tweaked this recipe just a bit - added a can of diced tomatoes,as I didn't have any tomatillos, and added a can of cream of chicken soup to thicken instead of cornstarch. It was really good - spicy enough for the folks that like it hot, but still edible for the rest of us!
sandy October 4, 2010 COMMENT: Any suggestions on how to make this recipe diabetic friendly? For example substitute the sugar and cornstarch.

I have cooked this at least a dozen times. Everyone LOVES it! I follow the recipe exactly - I don't cut any of the spices. It's got a kick - but I like spicey. And it freezes well. Highly recommend trying this recipe!

I used rotisserie chicken and won first prize at a chili cook-off with this recipe.

I made this recipe last night and it was pretty good! I did read the reviews and cut most of the spices (cumin, chili powder, garlic, red pepper, paprika, and basil) in half and it turned out exactly how I wanted it. I also couldn't find canned tomatillos so I used fresh and crushed them myself. All around good recipe.
mack July 2, 2007 COMMENT: For the chicken base - I assume that you can use 4.5 cups of chicken broth as a substitute to the base and water ingredients

I've made this recipe twice. I was looking for a recipe to Jason's Deli Southwest Chicken Chili and by cutting some of the spicey things in half it was a perfect match.

I have prepared 3-4 different chicken chili recipes and this is the best by far!!! Even my picky eater loved it! I was not able to find canned tomatillos, I ended up using fresh tomatillos from the produce department and chopped them up, fresh just maybe better than canned.

I used this recipe and changed a couple of items. I used mild rotel tomatoes and also a can of petite diced tomatoes. Both drained.
It is a little spicey for those whom don't eat spicey foods. I would cut in half or omit the red pepper for a milder chicken chili.
I also omited the white beans.
It is a very good recipe
Eggplants are a good source of potassium. If you find them to be too bitter, try buying smaller ones and sprinkle the flesh with salt and let it drain before cooking. This is a common reason why people shy away from eggplant but it is so easily remedied!
