Remember those picture flipbooks from when you were younger, that told a story using just pics? Well, here goes “the story” of tonight’s White Chicken Chili!
Hey, how’d that get in here 😉
P.S. This Pinot Noir I picked up during our JMU girls reunion trip to the Warwick Winery in NY is freaking amazing. I gotta find a way to get my hands on it down here from VA!!!
Layer ingredients into slow cooker
Dump chicken broth over top, set to medium (setting 4 on mine) and let it slow cook away for 2 hours
Remove chicken and shred (2 fork method – my new obsession?)
Add back to slow cooker for another hour or so – I also removed some of the beans and smashed them with a spoon at this point…. Why you ask? To thicken up the soup, this does a perfect job!
Bowl it up
Top with diced tomatoes, shredded cheddar, hot sauce, crushed tortilla chips & sour cream (don’t forget this part, it makes the dish!)
This recipe was awesome!!!! You can check it out here – and below are a few modifications I made as well – along with the fact that the time it took was nowhere near as long as this recipe calls for (I think less than 3 hours total?) 🙂
- 2 cans (15 oz. each) white beans (Great Northern)
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 can (4 oz.) diced green chilis
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp dried oregano leaves
- 1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 to 1.25 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
- black pepper
I adored this recipe! Not to mention that The Man told me at least 3 times how good it was while he was eating it…. 🙂 Winner in my book.
So time to get ready for another week, Monday rolls around faster each time it feels like! I had an absolutely fabulous weekend though, so no complaints here.
Tomorrow’s plans are to hang out with my homegirl Cindy and do a heart pumping cardio routine – esp bc we just finished up our exercise room today and it looks awesome!!! Hope she isn’t too mad at me for ditchin’ her today for the food festival 😛
See ya’ll tomorrow for some Monday love!!
