A proper chili doesn't have to be thick.

Contrary to popular opinion, a great chili recipe doesn’t have to be a thick, red beef-based cocoction served with shredded cheese and sour cream. Fans of juicy, tender chicken breast, rejoice! Down in Tennessee, “white chili” is more like a hearty chicken stew with the toasty cumin and rich bean flavor you love…served with shredded cheese and sour cream. Plus it doesn’t involve three hours of simmering, if you find yourself short on time. Either way, if you want to go all Top Chef at your tailgate and present “Chili Two Ways,” learning our classic slow-cooker recipe and Tennessee white chili puts you two steps ahead of the game.
