Sandahl's White Chicken Chili

Our friend, Sandahl recently shared her recipe for white chicken chili, a perfect winter-time lunch or dinner.  We made it for the first time last weekend and boy, are we hooked!  It's fabulous (and easy)!  With her blessing, I'm sharing the recipe with you!  

First, gather your ingrdients...(oops, just realized the onions are missing from the photo...)

3-4 cans white kidney (cannellini) beans (we used 3)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. oil
2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
4 cups diced cooked chicken breast
6 cups chicken broth
2 medium onions, chopped
2 - 4 oz. cans green chiles
1 1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
grated monterey jack cheese
sour cream

First, drain and rinse your beans...

Next, combine beans, broth, garlic and half of the onion in a large pot.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer.

Saute rest of onion in oil until tender; add chiles and seasonings and mix well.

Add mixture to beans and broth. Add chicken and simmer for 1 hour.

Top each serving with sour cream and grated cheese, the perfect finishing touch.  Enjoy!!!  I'd love to hear what you think if you try this.  Thanks again to you, Sandahl!

that is one of my families favorite meals, we also use a jar of salsa and a jar of spicey cheese too, it makes it a bit more creamy for chip dipping. So very good on a cold winter day!

I have all the ingredients for this soup and have intended to make it several times yet something has always come up. I love this recipe... it's a great one... a family favorite. I add tortilla chips to it after serving it in the bowl... It's so yummy!

Hope you are doing well, dear friend

This sounds a lot like our favorite white chicken chili! With snow falling today, soup sounds delicious! You've put me in the mood to make white chicken chili.

Every time you post a recipe on your blog I get hungry and actually want to try to make them (something that would shock and awe my fam, I'm sure *wink*). I'll have to get us to try this over here. It looks good! :)
