My friend, Ashley, shared this recipe with me recently and I had to make it ASAP because although I’ve saved countless recipes for it, I’ve never actually made it or even tried it! I have to say it’s very tasty, especially made her way with corn chips on the bottom and cheese on top (usually around here this is called a Frito pie). You just can’t go wrong with salty corn chips and cheese in your chili! Sooo good! Unless of course you’re watching your calories, then you’d be better off sprinkling a bit of cheese on top with just a few corn chips for garnish, as I did above. However, the chili is so good it can totally stand on it’s own. Any way you serve it would be great!
So here’s the recipe Ashley’s sister gave her when she got married (awww, those recipes are the best!) and that she has graciously permitted me to share with you! Enjoy!
White Chili (crockpot recipe)
2 large white onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cups cubed (raw) chicken
2 cans white kidney (great northern) beans, drained & rinsed
1 can garbanzo (chick peas) beans, drained & rinsed
2 cups chicken broth
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilis (I used 7 ounces)
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until tender. Transfer to slow cooker. Add all other ingredients; except cilantro, corn chips and cheese. Cook on low 6-7 hours (high for 4 hrs). Stir in cilantro and serve over corn chips with cheese on top!
