Delicious White Bean Chile!!!

White Bean and Chicken Chili

Great on a chilly fall night.

Works great in a Dutch oven when you are camping.

6 cups white beans (We use White Navy beans but when short on this kind, I have used whatever is in the pantry. If using dried beans wash, soak and sort before using. This recipe also works with canned beans).

6 cups chicken broth (Pacific Natural is GF and available at Costco)

2 medium onions, chopped

3 minced garlic cloves

2 T olive oil

1 1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1 4 ounce can diced green chilies

2 t ground cumin

1 1/2 t dried oregano

1/4 red pepper flakes


black pepper

Heat olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat.

Add garlic and one onion and sauté' until tender.

Add chicken and sauté' until thoroughly cooked.

Add green chilies, cumin, Oregano and red pepper flakes. Stir until well combined.

Add beans, chicken broth and one onion.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for one hour. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve warm with Tostitos and garnished with sour cream and cheddar cheese then dig in!!!
