I had chicken chili last week with white beans... incredible! Anyone know how to make some?

It had a little bit of a southwestern flair and was yummy!

    This one doesn't contain tomatoes. You can substitute turkey for the chicken.. good "after thanksgiving" option.

    Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili


    1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    1 onion, chopped

    3 cloves garlic, crushed

    1 (4 ounce) can diced jalapeno peppers

    (you can substitute mild green chiles for jalapeno)

    1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers

    2 teaspoons ground cumin

    1 teaspoon dried oregano

    1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

    2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth

    3 cups chopped cooked chicken breast

    3 (15 ounce) cans white beans

    1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


    Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Slowly cook and stir the onion until tender. Mix in the garlic, jalapeno, green chile peppers, cumin, oregano and cayenne. Continue to cook and stir the mixture until tender, about 3 minutes. Mix in the chicken broth, chicken and white beans. Simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Remove the mixture from heat. Slowly stir in the cheese until melted. Serve warm.
