feeding the family II

February 3, 2010

I had no idea so many of you are serving soup to your kids and they are eating it. Where have I been? I am going to try this and see if I can pull it off.  My friend Mandy told me this is a recipe she makes all the time.

White Chili

8 – 10 Servings

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

3 cloves of garlic, minced

2 ½ cups chopped fresh tomatoes, or 2 10 oz. can tomatoes with green chilies, chopped

6 tomatillos (fresh or from a can), chopped

1 medium jalapeno, seeded, minced (optional – I usually don’t put it in)

2 cups chicken stock

1 (17 oz.) can chopped green chilies

2 cups chopped cooked chicken

½ teaspoon oregano

½ teaspoon cumin

½ cup (heaping) chopped cilantro

2 (19 oz.) cans cannelloni or Great Northern beans

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Salt and pepper to taste

Sour cream

Shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

Tortilla chips

Heat the olive oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add the onion. Saute for 3 – 5 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic. Cook for 1 – 2 minutes more. Do not brown.

Add the tomatoes, tomatillos, and jalapeno. Cook until the tomatillos are tender, stirring occasionally.

Add the chicken stock, green chilies, chicken, oregano, cumin, cilantro, beans, and lime juice. Cook until heated through, stirring frequently. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve with sour cream, cheese, and tortilla chips on the side.

    White Chili rules!

    My kids won’t eat anything “mixed up” but that doesn’t stop me from making this taste chili. Sooooo good.

    Hey Suz-I LOVE white chicken chili- just learned from a friend that McCormiks sells a white chicken chili spice mix- just add that and skip all the spices from the recipes. SO easy and tastes great. My kids won’t eat it though….ugh.

    Too funny–we just had white turkey chili last night…but a pretty mild (and pretty easy version) that Eli eats. It is a really old Sunset recipe.

    Soup is the king! You can slide all their daily veggies in, plus you can make it once and eat it for a couple of meals, then freeze the rest for when you don’t want to cook (that’s big in my book). Add a little half panini, grilled cheese, or quesadilla on the side and: hog heaven.

    The white chicken chili spice pack from McCormick’s is excellent–
