White Chicken Chili
Fall is in the air - for some of the country! -- and some are definitely NOT! - But likely will be soon...
In my neck of the woods, we are most certainly entering the season of Comfort Food!
I am wanting to hear all of your go-to, 'hunker down on a chilly evening' recipes! Please share your favorites and we will all have some new good food to try out this fall and winter!
I will start us off! - One of my family's favorites (and it's SUPER easy) is White Chicken Chili - it is not tomato based and it is much more brothy than traditional chili. It is also happens to be quite healthful and light (BONUS!) - and warm you to your bones! There's hardly any dishes to clean up and you hopefully will have leftovers for the next day!
1 Package of the rotisserie chicken from Costco, or several cooked and shredded chicken breasts
1 Cup Chopped Onions
1 Finely chopped garlic clove (or garlic powder if you don't have any fresh garlic)
2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
2-3 15oz. Cans Great Northern Beans
2 cartons of chicken stock (I sometimes use more if I want more broth)
2 4 oz. Cans Chopped Green Chilies
1/2 Teaspoons Pepper
1 Teaspoon Oregano
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (add more or less to your liking)
In a large stock pot, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil until translucent.
Add the chilis and allow to sweat down with the onions and garlic for a minute or two.
Add the spices, then add the chicken and stock.
Add in the beans and allow soup to simmer for about 30 minutes.
Plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
