My Step-Mom sent this to me a while back (I think it is a WW recipe) and I make it all the time- is is SOOOOOOOOOO good!!!! Her variations are in () and I follow those as well. :thumb

White bean Chili

3 medium onions, chopped (1 large is usually good too)

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon olive or canola oil

4 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey (I use one of the big bags from Costco – already cooked chicken strips – and put the other bag in the freezer…)

2 cans (15 oz each) white kidney, or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained

2 cups chicken broth

1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies

2 teaspoons ground cumin

˝ teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro or parsley (I usually skip this part…)

Corn chips, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and sour cream

In a skillet, sauté the onions and garlic in oil until tender. Transfer to a slow cooker. Add the chicken, beans, broth, green chilies, cumin, oregano, salt and cayenne; stir well. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until bubbly (or slightly less or more…).

Stir in cilantro (if you desire). Serve over (or with) corn chips; top with cheese and sour cream.

Yield 8 servings (2 quarts)

Enjoy! :)
