Recipe Friday - White Chicken Chili

When Butterbean was born one of Chris' co-workers brought us White Chicken Chili for dinner, it was awesome! I had almost forgotten about it until I was trying to come up with something different for dinner. I tripled the recipe and left out some of the heat but it was great.

White Chicken Chili

1 lb ground chicken or turkey
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans chopped green chilies
3 cans white beans (cannelloni or great northerns), 2 cans drained, the third can pureed.
1.5 qts chicken stock
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
Montery Jack Cheese, shredded

In large stock pot over medium heat cook onions until soft, add chicken and garlic. Cook until browned through. Add chilies and seasonings, saute 5 minutes. Add beans, chicken broth and pureed beans. Simmer over medium-low/low heat for 30 minutes. Serve topped with cheese.

Warning: this will make your house smell really good!
