White Bean Chili

Recommended by an Aspen friend, I tried this chili last December at Bonnie's and had it again during our visit in February.  I've yet to make it myself, but it's on my list "to try" using,  instead of the sour cream, 12 oz (1 1/2 c) non-fat yogurt whisked with 2 t  cornstarch - NB To keep yogurt from "breaking down" whisk with cornstarch before adding to pot and avoid high heat after adding yogurt.   Recipe is from Bonnie's at 1:00* Bonnie's serves soup topped with multi-colored, thinly sliced, fried tortilla strips
