White Chili Recipe

Sour cream, whipping cream, and melted Monterey Jack cheese are stirred into this white chili recipe, making it extra rich and creamy. Rotate white chili into your menu as a substitute for chili with beef and kidney beans.

1 tablespoon oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 onion, chopped
14-ounce can chicken broth
2 (15 .8-ounce) cans Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
2 (4 1⁄2-ounce) cans chopped green chiles, undrained
1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
8-ounce container sour cream
1 cup whipping cream
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Garnish: cilantro sprigs

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add chicken and onion.

Sauté 10 minutes or until chicken is done; set aside.

Combine broth, beans, chiles and seasonings in a large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Add chicken mixture; reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. Add sour cream and whipping cream, stirring well.

Top each serving with shredded cheese; garnish, if desired.

Serves 6 to 8.
