White Chili

I adapted this recipe from one I found on the internet, and YUM! This uses chicken from the Just Chicken recipe, but you can use whatever you happen to have. It's a nice change from traditional chili, and if you want to kick up the heat, just add more cayenne and chipotle seasonings.

White Chili

1 tsp. canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
2 cups chicken broth
1 7-oz can diced green chilies, undrained
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp cilantrao
1/2 tsp. chipotle chili powder
1/8 tsp cayenne
2 15-oz cans cannelinni beans (great northern), rinsed and drained
8 oz block pepper jack cheese, divided
sour cream, optional

Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan. Add onions and cook until tender. Add chicken, broth, and spices. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Cut block of cheese in half. Shred one half and set aside for garnish. Cut the other half into small cubes. Add cheese cubes and beans to chili. Stir well. Cover and simmer 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and can be stirred thoroughly into chili.

Stir in beans and cook until warmed through. Garnish with sour cream and shredded cheese. Serves 6-8.
