Can you believe, up until a few years ago I had never heard the term "white chili?" I was always used to your old fashion tomato based version chili that my mom so lovingly prepared every winter and served up with saltines or grilled cheese. Staying away from beef more often, even though now in my regular chili I usually use ground turkey and some good ground sirloin, I needed to start making chili recipes with chicken. Chicken and regular red chili bases just don't jive, so a yummy white-based sauce with the chicken broth, canned cream of chicken, and beans is perfect and no white flour needed. I especially love this one, for it is cooked in the crockpot on low all day and has a tad bit of Mexican flair. It makes for great versatility other than just heating up bowls of it. I like dunking tortilla chips in it or crushing them for the top.
Another thing I like to do wth the leftovers, is put inside tortillas for either chicken soft tacos or grill in the skillet for quesadillas. Just add some cheese fold over and heat on both sides in a lil olive oil til a little crispy, then cut in 3rds and add some sour cream, salsa, etc...
CROCKPOT CHUNKY CHICKEN CHILI
1 1/2 lbs uncooked chicken breast (can be frozen)
2 – 15 oz cans of white beans (drained)...I like
1 package taco seasoning
1 – 7 oz can of chopped green chilies
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 – 14 oz can of chicken broth
2 Tsps good chicken base
1/2 cup sour cream (I used low fat)
Fine shredded cheese (I used Colby-Jack)
Place chicken in the bottom of the Crock Pot. Add 1 can beans and the green chilies. Mash the other can of beans with a potato masher and add to a medium bowl. Add the broth, chicken base, taco seasoning, and cream of chicken; mix well and pour over the top. Cover and cook on low in the Crock Pot for 8-10 hours. Before serving use a fork to break up the chicken.… the consistency should change from brothy with chunks of meat and beans to a very thick and even consistency. If desired, Add sour cream and stir until mixed. Add shredded cheese, a and either crushed chips on top or I like to dip my chips in it. YUM!
