martha moments: white chicken chili

This is best when paired with a great football game. :-)


White Chicken Chili

You'll need:

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small cubes
1 onion, chopped finely
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 T. vegetable or canola oil
1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
2 cans (15.5 oz size) of great northern beans, rinsed and drained
2 (4 oz) cans chopped green chilies
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. black pepper (more if you want)
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1 (8 oz.) cup sour cream
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

In a saucepan, sautee the chicken, onion and garlic powder in your oil until the chicken is cooked. Add beans, broth and chilies. Stir well, then add in all seasonings. Bring to a slow boil.

Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about half an hour. Remove from heat and stir in the cup of sour cream and heavy cream. It's ready to serve immediately! Serve with crushed tortillas or fritos.

**If you want, you can transfer everything (minus the sour cream and heavy cream) into a crockpot on low until you're ready to serve. When you get ready to serve it, just add in the creams.
