Why I Love This Recipe

I like this even better than traditional red chili. It's every bit as spicy and warming.

Ingredients You'll Need

16 oz. dried white beans
at least 6 cups chicken broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 chopped onions (I like Vidalia onions)
2 4-oz. cans green chilies
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 to 6 cups chopped chicken breast
3 cups grated Monterrey Jack cheese
garnish: sour cream, cilantro, chopped green onion, tortilla chips, whatever


Soak beans according to package directions.

Drain beans; put in large pot with 6 cups chicken broth, garlic and onions.

Simmer 3 hours or until beans are tender.

Stir in green chilies,cumin, oregano, cloves and pepper.

Add chicken and simmer another hour.

Add more chicken broth if needed.

Ladle chili into bowls and top with a handful of grated cheese.

Garnish with sour cream, cilantro, chopped green onion or whatever you want!
