The Great White Chili

Over the years I've seen several recipes for this chili...each one varying a bit from the other...but all relatively similar in their ingredients. I've always wanted to try to make it but was a bit hesitant because my hubby isn't a fan of "beans" or chili. One day, I thought I would just bite the bullet and surprise him with this delicious dish. Much to my surprise he loved it and asked if he could have some for lunch the following day. It has just a hint of "spicy" to it, but I think it's actually the swiss cheese that tops this chili off and makes it superb!

The Great White Chili

1-2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed into small pieces
2 t. garlic powder
2 cans great northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilies
3 c. chicken broth (I just used water and chicken bullion cubes because thats what I had)
1 t. cumin
1 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. pepper
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
1-2 c. grated swiss cheese

In large frying pan put a small amount of oil and heat. Cook chicken until well done. In a large saucepan, add beans, cooked chicken, garlic powder, chilies, broth and remaining seasonings. Bring soup to a boil, turn down heat and let soup simmer for 30 minutes, stirring periodically to keep from burning. Add whipping cream and sour cream. Stir until sour cream is melted and soup thickens slightly. Top with a generous helping of swiss cheese. Serve immediately.

Happy Cooking~
