Creamy White Chili

My mother-in-law has been telling us about a white chicken chili she had at her cousin’s house a few weeks ago, Mom and Dad both keeps saying how great it was and how they really liked it. My husband loves a good chili too so I look through my new cook book and found a recipe that I think sounds similar to the one they had. I made a few additions and one subtraction and it really turned out wonderful, very creamy, very thick and just enough kick to know you were eating chili.

2 - Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (cubed)
1 – Medium Onion (chopped)
1 – Small Can Mushrooms (chopped…optional)
1 ½ Tsp. - Garlic Powder
1 Tbs. - EVOO
1 – 15 ½ oz. - Great Northern Beans
1 – 15 ½ oz. - Cannellini Beans
1 – 14 ½ oz. - Chicken Broth
2 – 4 oz. - Green Chilies (chopped…I used 1 can)
1 C. - Frozen Corn (optional)
1 Tsp. - Salt
1 Tsp. - Cumin
1 Tsp. - Dried Oregano
½ Tsp. - Pepper
¼ Tsp. - Cayenne Pepper
8 oz. - Sour Cream
½ C. - Heavy Cream

In a large soup pot sauté the chicken, onion, mushrooms, and garlic powder in EVOO until the chicken is no longer pink. Add the beans (liquid too), broth, chilies, corn and seasonings, bring to a boil. Simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream and heavy cream. Serve immediately with a side salad or good crusty bread.

I make a chili almost identical to this and it is incredible - the kick of the cayenne and the chili's really put this one over the top!!

if i had to pick between white chili and beef chili (and i hope i never do), i'd be really, really tempted to choose white chili, especially your version. that's a lot of creamy goodness. :)

Now only if all the food I cooked looked like that. ;)

Mmm, that looks good but looks more like a soup than a chili. Either way, it looks delicious!

Mom said...

This is a really good chili. Had some Saturday afternnon, and it was just right - not too spicey.
Thanks for the sample.
Loved it.

I've been looking for a good white chili recipe for a while. This one was quite good. The consistency was more like a chowder when I made it, so I pureed a third can of beans to thicken it and served it with shredded cheese - it was fantastic and will remain in my recipe box! Thanks!
