If Popa were Italian his Simple White Chili would make him Pope. YUM. I made this recipe because the name had simple in it, there is no added salt, no cheese, it called for low-sodium seasoning and the recipe submitter is not known to scrimp on flavour. My problem is I don't have access to canned green sauce or canned green chiles; so I improvised. I thought that not using the canned ingredients would have taken away flavour, not so. I made my own green sauce and roasted my own green chiles then added the liquid from a jar of jalepenos. Man, is this a good chili. Easy comes to mind as well as simple but tastes like one of those dishes that someone slaved over a hot stove for hours. I refuse to tell my family that it only took an hour. The house filled with an aroma that sent all the family in the kitchen for a taste. Simple, delicious, easy, low sodium, rich flavour and filling. What more could you want? Thanks bd.weld for your great recipe.
