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. ;)
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.
