Chicken Chili with Beans Recipe


Make a different kind of chili. This chili is made with chicken and great northern beans. It is thick and hearty like beef or pork chili in red sauce, and just as good.

INGREDIENTS

4 Cups cooked chicken, roughly cubed*
3 Cans (10/11 oz.) chicken broth
3 Cans (15/16) great northern beans, drained
2 Cans chopped jalapeno Chiles
1/2 Tspn cayenne pepper
2 Medium onions, coarsely chopped
2 Tbspn cooking oil
5 Cloves garlic, finely minced
1-1/2 Tspn dried oregano
2 Tspn ground cumin
1-1/2 Cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (or white cheddar cheese)
Salt and white pepper to taste
Green onions, diced for garnish (optional)*

DIRECTIONS

All oil to large heavy pan with cover and saute onions until softened and translucent. Add jalapeno's, garlic, cayenne, oregano and cumin to onions, stir and cook a few minutes.

Add chicken broth, beans and cooked chicken, stir and simmer over medium high heat for 10 minutes. Turn heat off and add shredded cheese. Stir to melt and mix, then cover chili for 5 minutes.

Spoon chicken chili into large soup bowls and garnish with diced green onions. Serve with toasted English muffins or buttered corn bread, or corn muffins.

Serves 6 to 10 (will freeze well)

*Hint*
*A large roasted chicken will yield 4 cups chicken with leftovers for another meal. See recipe below.
*For an unusual and tasty garnish, mix sour cream and green onions together and put a dollop on chili chicken.
