There is a chill in the air and you know what that means? It’s Chili weather! When the weather changes, the kids belts warehouse stays on the cold side because it’s a warehouse and and by nature they are difficult to keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer. So what is my method of warming up? Making a nice big pot of chili! I love chili, but not your standard, run of the mill chili, I am in the mood for some White Chicken Chili.

I came across this recipe and had to share…

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups finely chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 (4.5-ounce) cans chopped green chiles, undrained
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 (15.5-ounce) cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions

Preparation

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; cook 10 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently.
  • Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; sauté 6 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add garlic; sauté 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in cumin, dried oregano, and coriander; sauté 1 minute. Stir in chiles; reduce heat to low, and cook 10 minutes, partially covered. Add the chicken, water, cannellini beans, and broth; bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in hot sauce. Ladle 1 cup of chili into each of 8 bowls; sprinkle each serving with 2 tablespoons cheese, 1 tablespoon cilantro, and 1 tablespoon green onions.

I even like to serve this with a little sour cream and shredded cheese on top. Mmmm… my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
