“This is our tried and true white chili that folks have raved about - this recipe has been handed out many a time. Very, very tasty! You can substitute cubed chicken for the pork, if you like. It is ABSOLUTELY delicious. :) I've made it, friends have made it... you should make it.”

  1. Over medium heat in a heavy pot, sauté the pork (or chicken) and onion in oil and butter for 8 to 10 minutes or until the meat browns and onion softens.
  2. Add the rice and barley stir to coat, then stir in the cumin, salt, garlic, white beans, garbanzo beans, chilies, hominy, Tabasco, crumbled bacon, chicken broth, tomatillos, lime juice, and basil.
  3. Bring to boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 40-45 minutes.
  4. Serve each portion topped with about 2 Tbsp cheese and together with good, crusty bread and a salad.
  5. If the chili is too thick for your preference, you can add chicken broth to the desired consistency.
