White Bean Verde Chili Recipe

Personal Chef Austin Texas

White Bean CHili
Here is a very easy recipe that you can set and forget while you are away at work to be able to enjoy a nice warm dinner after a long day. This is also a good recipe for almost any cool weather occasion. I had kinda had it with regular meat chili no beans, or the regular chili with beans they seemed a bit boring. I love a good verde sauce and decided to play around a bit with a recipe to make it more like a suiza or white bean verde chili. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. YUM!

Ingredients

2 cans (15 oz each) Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, medium dice
4-6 cups chicken broth, use the 4 if you want a thicker chili
1 can green enchilada sauce, or verde sauce
1 /2 cup chopped sweet onion
1/2 cup of Mexican or Fiesta cheese blend
1/2 cup frozen sweet corn
1 poblano charred, roasted over flame on gas stove, seeded and diced
1-2 Tablespoons of rinsed, patted dry, and fine chop of fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons of chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano leaves

Directions

** You can use a cooking spray to lightly coat your Crockpot for easier cleanup.
Drain and rinse your beans and then add all ingredients to crock pot except the cheese and cilantro you will add just before serving to help thicken the sauce. If you want a little thicker chili add less broth or you can add more cheese if you wish and then garnish with the fresh cilantro and onions and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

Cover; cook on LOW 8 hours or on HIGH 4 hours. If cooking on high you will need to check the water level and make sure that it does not overcook the beans and totally remove all the broth so that it burns, and make sure to stir it occasionally if you are cooking at the higher setting. Enjoy!!!
