From the Test Kitchen

There’s nothing quite like a big bowl of chili, piled high with delicious toppings. White chili is unique in a few ways: it typically showcases poultry (we chose turkey), and swaps out darker beans for white, like cannellini. Most notably, it doesn’t use tomatoes. Here, that allows other flavors to shine, from the hearty vegetables to the classic spices (like chipotle chile powder and cumin). We’re also topping off our chili with aged white cheddar—along with strips of oven-toasted blue corn tortillas, common in traditional Mexican and Southwestern dishes.
