Recipe for White Chili

Several people asked me for this recipe – so here it is. I soak the beans in chicken stock in the crock pot the day before I make the chili, then finish it up about 3 hours prior to serving on Low in the crock pot. I figured this was about 6 points/serving on Weight Watchers. It makes about 8 servings.

White Chili

1 lb large white beans

6 cups Chicken broth

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 medium onions, chopped (divided use)

1 tablespoon oil

2  4-oz cans chopped green chilis

2 tsp ground cumin

1 1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste)

4 cups diced cooked chicken breast

Combine  beans, chicken broth, garlic and half the onions in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until beans are very soft, about 3 hours or more. Add chicken broth if necessary. In a skillet, saute remaining onions in oil until tender. Add green chilies and all seasonings, and mix thoroughly. Add to bean mixture. Add chicken and continue to simmer 1 hour. Serve with grated cheese, chopped onion, tomatoes and chopped avocado. Good with cornbread!
