White Chicken Chili
Howdy friends! I’m still here. I know you all probably thought I had finally sold out and bought a one way ticket to the Virgin Islands. Hey, when I do that, you will be the first to know. Pinky swear.
They have internet in the Caribbean, don’t they?
Since I’m here, and it’s freezing cold, thought I would share this awesome White Chicken Chili recipe.
It’s delicious AND easy!
And it will warm your bones.
My sister-in-law first shared it with me last year, and it became an instant favorite.
White Chicken Chili
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (4oz) chopped green chilies
3 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons cumin
2 cans (16oz) Navy or Great Northern Beans
1 can chicken broth (14.5oz)
*1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
In a dutch oven, cook onion in oil for 5 minutes or until transparent. Add chilies. (I use “hot” chilies, ’cause we like to keep things spicey around here) heehee.
Add flour and cumin; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add beans and chicken broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened. Add chicken; cook until hot. Garnish with whatever makes your boat float.
*Note: I take a couple of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, drizzle with olive oil, then season with chili powder, garlic powder and salt. Then bake them for 20 minutes, or until cooked through. I love the flavor of the chicken so much, that, I usually bake a few extra to use during the week.
Here is a picture of some of the ingredients, for friends in other countries 🙂
That does look very warming. I'm not sure what canned green chillies are – don't think we can buy those here. xx
Charlie, I'm adding a pic of the ingredients to the end of the post. I bet you can find them in Australia 🙂
Actually, they're pretty easy to find. Look in the Mexican food section….they come in a little 4-oz. can. I always buy the diced style, but you can get them whole, too. They have a mild flavor. Sometimes I mince up a fresh jalapeno and use it instead if I want it a little spicier.
Hello! Found you via BigMamaLisa. Will add you to my list of frequent haunts. I will also add this to my recipe pile.
If I cooked, I'd definitely be trying this! (My cooking is grilled cheese sandwiches and a can (gasp!!) of soup!
