and get a flat belly too*!
Really, though, white chili is always a high ranking dish at chili contests. This was a winner last week. We could eat this every week - easy, quick (well, it sits in a crock pot for 8 hours but otherwise quick), delicious.
Also, a shout out to the People's Choice winner of said chili contest - a great chili recipe with no meat or beans. No, really.
White Chicken Chili
1 c butter
1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c chicken broth
4 c milk
2 tsp Tabasco
2 onions, chopped
2 T chili powder
1 T cumin
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne (red) pepper
8 oz canned green chilies, chopped
2 lbs chicken breast
3 c shredded Monterey Jack cheese
4 cans white beans (I use Great Northern and white kidney beans)
Melt butter and whisk in flour followed by chicken broth and milk. Add Tabasco, onion, seasonings, chilis, and chicken and cook in crock pot all day. 1 hour before serving, pull out chicken breasts and shred (should come apart easily). Put back in crock pot and add cheese and beans. Cook 30-60 minutes more.
*Okay, am I the only one who constantly gets this ad about getting a flat belly by following a super weird rule. I don't know what the rule is because I've never clicked on it. But I'm secretly dying to know.
