White Chicken Chili

There’s lots and lots of snow happening in my neck of the woods. Nineteen inches and counting. Just when I never thought it possible, we got a snow day from work! Woo Hoo!

So, I’m snuggled up inside with a hot cup of coffee and dreaming about soup. This one, in particular…

It’s a white chili made with chicken and topped with cheese and tortilla strips. Mmmm…

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups water
1 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
1 tsp cumin seed
4 chicken breast halves
1 tsp olive oil
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 cup onion, chopped
2 (9 0z) packages frozen white corn (thawed)
2 (4.5 oz) cans chopped green chiles, undrained
2 (15.5 oz) cans white beans, undrained
1 tsp cumin
1 lime, juiced
Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
Tortilla Chips

Instructions:
-Combine water, lemon-pepper & cumin seed and bring to a boil
-Add chicken, cover, simmer 20-30 minutes (until chicken is cooked through)
-In medium skillet, heat olive oil & cook garlic for about 1 min
-Add onions and cook until soft
-Remove chicken from cooking liquid (don’t toss your liquid, you need this!), shred and return to pot
-Add onion and garlic as well as corn, chiles, cumin and lime juice to pot
-Bring to boil, then add beans and cook until heated through
-Ladle soup into bowls, top with cheese and tortilla chips & serve

It’s the perfect way to warm-up and re-fuel after battling drifts of snow. It’s also perfect if you have no intention of leaving the confines of your house and dealing with snow in any way…so…really, perfection all around!

Stay safe & warm out there, my friends!
