White Chili

This chili is a Paula Deen recipe and it is SO good. I made it last week for company and it was a hit. The leftovers are even better. With all the overcast weather we've been having lately, it's the perfect idea for dinner. Pair it with some homemade cornbread (see recipe to left) and some tortilla chips to help eat it up! This recipe is for the crock pot, but I did it in a dutch oven on the stove for 2 hours.

5 Cups chopped, cooked chicken (I was in a hurry, so I bought a rotisserie chicken at Sam's)
3 (15 oz) cans Great Northern Beans, drained
1 (32 oz) box chicken broth
1 (16 oz) jar mild salsa
1 (8 oz) pkg Monterey Jack Cheese (you can use the one with peppers), cubed
2 tsp ground cumin
Garnish: cheddar cheese, sour cream, jalepenos

In a 6 qt slow cooker, combine chicken, beans, broth, salsa, cheese and cumin. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low; simmer 2 hours, stirring ocasionally. Garnish with cheddar cheese, sour cream and jalepenos, if desired.

I love this, too! We made it in Colorado for Ben's family (11 of us), and it was a hit. I added a can of green chiles also.

Hi there!! Cissie just let me know that you are her sister in law!! Such a small world--a friend of mine told me about your dinner blog and I make most of the recipes--my husband loves the variety!

I heard about your blog swap, as well, and took a look at the site--such a great idea-the presents were so cute--then i realized I was a "unknown lurker"-YIKES!! Maybe one day Cissie and I will get in on the action!! Thanks for great recipes, can't wait for more!

This looks great. I am on the look out for crock pot soup recipes that are healthy and low fat. So if any of you have any I would love to see them posted.
