I don’t know where you live, but where I live it is cold! The high today is going to be 45 with wind gusts up to 30 mph! With weather like that all I can think about is soup. And the spicier the better! This white chili is the perfect solution to the cold day. The bread bowl isn’t absolutely necessary but you will thank yourself for it.
3 cans white beans, rinsed and drained
1 large onion finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T olive oil
4-5 cups chicken broth
2- 4 oz.- cans diced green chilies
1 1/2 t. ground cumin
1 t. oregano
pinch of red pepper
8 ounces of cooked chicken, shredded
round crusty loaves of bread or cornbread squares
Heat oil in a large pot. Saute onion and garlic until onion is tender. Stir in beans, broth, diced chilies, cumin, oregano, and red pepper. Bring to boiling and simmer for 20 minutes. Mash beans slightly to thicken soup. Add chicken. Check seasonings. Hollow out round loaves or split cornbread and serve chili in bread bowls or over cornbread. Top with sour cream, cheese, and jalapeno.
