Blanco Chili

I have been wanting to try a white chili for some time.  Plus, I had some cooked up great northern beans sitting in my freezer that really needed to be used.  This past week I finally did it, and I am wondering why I waited so long?

Hubs was very impressed.  He asked where I got the recipe from and I told him I didn't have one.  I glanced at a couple different recipes several weeks ago, but this recipe was entirely my own creation.  Not bad, if I do say so myself--and Hubby thought so too.  ;)

Blanco Chili

2 Tbsp olive oil (you could use butter too)
1 cup chopped onion
2 Tbsp flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans (or about 3 cups) great northern beans
1 1/2 cups cooked turkey, chopped (chicken would be just fine)
6 cups turkey stock (again, chicken works too....just using up Thanksgiving leftovers from the freezer)
1 4 oz. can diced chilies
1 1/2 tsp cumin
3/4 tsp ground coriander
Salt and pepper, to taste

Sour cream and chopped cilantro for garnish--avocado and monteray jack cheese would be wonderful as well!

In a large stockpot over medium high heat, saute onions in olive oil.  When onions are tender, add in garlic and flour and cook for 1-2 minutes.  Add in stock and heat through.  Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Soup should be nice and thick when ready to serve.

This sounds scrumptious! My son detests regular chili and he just might eat this! :)

I love the clean inviting look of this chili. Everyone in my family enjoys chili - which is unusual because most nights I find I have to make AT LEAST two dinners. I've clipped the recipe and look forward to trying it (once I can plow my way out of the driveway and to the grocery to restock).

This one sounds like a winner for sure. I've got to try it while we're having some cool weather.

I think I have everything in the recipe already in the house. I could make this tomorrow or New Years Day!

Happy New Years!
