“The whole house smells delicious while this is cooking. It's simple to make and has a nice variety of textures and flavors. I used white beans and chicken that I cooked previously which saved time. The cilantro and the jalapenos are the secret ingredients...don't leave them out. I would add more jalapeno next time because it wasn't enough heat to notice. Recipe from 2009 Taste of Home Annual Recipes courtesy of Kristine Bowles, Albuquerque, New Mexico. She doubles this recipe and throws in an extra can of beans and serves it with biscuits or warmed tortillas.”
