Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats: White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili

 
I know...another soup recipe.  Sorry!  I just cannot get enough of soup.  Our family loves soup and when I find something we love I tend to go overboard.  And then they get sick of it.  So pretty soon, I'll be moving on to more variations of pizza or something.
 
Another thing, they and I love.
 
A good friend, old co-worker, who I haven't seen in ions, but thanks to the world of social media I still keep in touch with, gave me this recipe a few weeks ago.  She posted a picture of it on her page and I immediately messaged her for the recipe.
 
I'm a recipe stalker.  Beware if you post a photo of food and it's looks even halfway enticing, you'll soon have a message from me, begging for the recipe.


 
I did make a few variations because I was lazy and didn't want to make a trip to the store, but for the most part kept the recipe close to how she made it.
 
It does have a kick!  If you can't handle the smoky, spicy flavor, I'd just cut back on the green chilies or omit the cayenne pepper.  But, you know me, I love a good nose run while hovered over a bowl of soup.
 
White Chicken Chili
3 c. cooked shredded chicken
1 med. onion, diced
1 t. garlic powder
1 T. olive oil
1 can great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies
1 t. salt
1 t. ground cumin
1 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. pepper
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1 C sour cream
1/2 C whipping cream
 
In large saucepan, saute onion in oil until soft. Add in chicken, beans, broth, chilies and seasonings. Bring to boil, then reduce to a simmer for 30 minutes, uncovered. Remove from heat and add in sour cream and whipping cream. Serve immediately.  Serves 4.


I'm officially starting to get into the holiday spirit.  I won't be shopping any of the Black Friday deals, but I will be mentally preparing what I need to make and buy for all our loved ones.

I've got some great ideas!

Plus, I've got our 2nd Annual Holiday Dinner Party to plan.  Argh!  But, it is so much fun, that it doesn't really seem like work, you know?

So, are you ready for Thanksgiving this week, U.S. readers?  I personally cannot believe it is here already...

Just yesterday it seemed we were outside playing in the sprinkler with the kids.  Long are those days!

  2. That looks delicious Ally - of all the chilis I've made, I don't think I've ever made a white version!

    I am ready for Thanksgiving, because I gave the grocery list to my husband and he shopped last Friday and the store was not crowded at all. Although he did come with a 19 pound turkey for five people - I'll have lots of leftovers!!

  3. I've made white chicken chili before but it's usually really brothy. What a good idea to add the cream!

    Thanksgiving is over in Canada, but it is a much lower key holiday here ...

    Thanks for coming by and checking out my soup. I came to your blog to see the soup that is similar but had a hard time finding it. You should add a list of categories so it is easier to find. This chili looks yummy. Perfect for these cold winter days.
