white chili...

i made this last night for dinner and it was delish. if you own the dodge family cookbook then it is on page 57. it's my cousin, brooke's, recipe...

  • 2 lbs. chicken (can use two cans of costco chicken or 2 whole, already cooked chickens)
  • 2 med. onions, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • olive oil to saute
  • 3 c grated jack cheese
  • 2 (4 oz.) cans mild green chilies
  • 6 c chicken broth or stock
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 cans northern beans (14-16 oz)
  • 1 can butter beans
  • 1 can navy beans
*i couldn't find butter beans at walmart so i just used two cans of navy

cook chicken and shred. i cooked a whole chicken in my crockpot all day with celery, onion, thyme, 2 bay leaves, oregano and salt and pepper so that i could make my own stock. saute onions and garlic in olive oil until soft. add chilies, cumin, pepper and oregano. add broth and beans, heat through. i actually brought mine to a boil and simmered it for 10 min. take off stove and add cheese, let melt. salt and pepper to taste. garnish with sour cream, red onion, avocado, and cilantro.

moi delicioso! it has the best flavor and was just perfect for a cold winters night when i have a cold!! it makes a ton of soup...i fed us, two of my friends, dave's uncle and two police officers and had some left over. so you could probably half it. i don't think it would freeze well beause of the beans.
