|Ken's White Chili|
1 lb great northern beans
5 (3 ounce) cans fat-free chicken broth
2 onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
2 teaspoons cumin, ground
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 cups monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 (7 ounce) can green chilies, chopped
Soak beans overnight. Combine beans, broth, onions and garlic in large
(boil, then simmer) for 1-2 hours until beans are done. (Do not
stir too much or
the beans will fall apart). When beans are done, add
chicken, spices and
Simmer for approximately 1 hour and add grated cheese last. Simmer until
is melted; stir or cheese will sink to the bottom and scorch.
NOTE: Cooking times are approximate. Basically cook until the beans are
spices have "soaked in", then until cheese melts.
Sometimes not all of the chicken broth is necessary.
You don't want it too soupy, so I usually add about 4 cans of chicken
add the last can as needed.
This will make a large pot. Serve with a salad and garlic bread and enjoy!
