White Chicken Chili by Carol M

a few months ago we had a potluck at work. we each were assigned to bring our best dish. i brought these, and a co-worker brought white chicken chili. this was something i had never even heard of. but boy oh boy is this good! with highs only in the teens lately this definitely has helped keep me warm. i hope you make it and warm up too!
What you will need:
1 1/2 cup diced cooked chicken, 4 cans Great Northern beans (do NOT drain juices),
2 cups chicken broth, 2 seeded jalapeno peppers (chopped),
1 can (4 ounce) chopped green chilies, 2 cups grated low-fat cheddar cheese,
6oz. low fat cream cheese (do not use non-fat or the texture will be lumpy)

cut up and cook your chicken. season with what you like.
i seasoned mine with salt, pepper, and chili powder.
in a large saucepan mix in the beans...
...green chilies, chopped jalapeno peppers...
...chicken, chicken broth, and bring to a boil.
Then add the cheese...mmm cheese...
...and cream cheese. Stir until melted.
turn down heat to medium.
once cheese has melted, reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

mmm tasty!

4 cans Great Norther beans (do not drain juices)
2 cups chicken broth
2 seeded jalapeno peppers, chopped
1 can (4 ounce) chopped green chilies
2 cups grated low-fat cheddar cheese
6oz. low fat-cream cheese (do not use non-fat or the texture will be lumpy)
(since i cook for 1 i cut the recipe in half, and it still makes a lot)

Cook diced chicken.
In a large saucepan, mix the beans, green chilies, chopped jalapeno peppers, chicken broth, and chicken cubes. bring to a boil. turn down heat to medium and add the shredded cheddar cheese, and cream cheese. once cheese has melted, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Thanks for the recipe, April. I LOVE trying new recipes. This is what I'm making for dinner tonight! I read the recipe before I went to the grocery store and thought there was only 2 cans of northern beans, so that's all I bought. I have some white kidney beans, though, so I hope those will work. Thanks again!
