  • Slow Cooker White Bean Chili

    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.

    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)
