This white chicken chili recipe was adapted by my lovely sister Hilary, and ever since she served it to us my husband keeps asking for it. Even our family's resident picky eater approves of it (probably because there's nothing green in it).
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey or chicken breasts
1 2/3 cup onion
3 garlic cloves
2 cans cannellini beans
1 can chick peas (garbanzo beans)
2 cups chicken broth
2 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp cumin (I use a little less)
1/2 tsp black pepper
salt to taste
Serve with purple corn chips and cheese
If you are using ground turkey, brown the turkey and then add the onion and garlic and cook until tender (10 min) in a large saucepan. I normally use leftover roasted chicken, so I just cook the onion and garlic by themselves. Add beans (drained and rinsed), broth, spices, and meat if not already in the pot. Simmer approximately 20 minutes. Serve with grated cheese and purple corn chips. And just in case you are wondering, I like the purple corn chips because they show up so nice and pretty against the white chili. Much better than yellow corn chips. Yes, I'm one of those people...
As I already mentioned, I normally use leftover roasted chicken for this dinner. I hate having to cook chicken, and then cook dinner. It just seems like too many steps. Since I am so
Until next time, MaryAnn
