I Never Knew Chili Could be WHITE!

I recently found out how much Greg loved Chili so I decided to make some more. While Googling for a recipe, I found something that sounded really interesting...White Chicken Chili. I seriously never knew chili could be any other color but red so I was curious to try it. (I also had the last of my slow-cooked chicken to use up so it was perfect!) I pretty much combined a bunch of recipes I found online and made my own. I also served it with more cornbread muffins but this time using Bisquick instead of Jiffy. This was definitely a new take on Chili for us but a yummy one! It almost tasted like a chowder...nice and creamy. Now our tummies are warm and stuffed so we'll be vegging on the couch to watch 3 hours of Lost now!

White Chicken Chili

1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped

1 Tbsp minced fresh parsley
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 c cooked chicken, shredded
1/2 c sour cream
1/2 c shredded Pepper Jack cheese


1. In a large saucepan, cook onion and jalapeño in oil until tender, about 5-8 minutes. Add garlic and cumin; cook 1 minute longer.

2. Stir in the broth, beans, parsley, lime juice and chicken; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream and cheese.

Corn Muffins

1 Tbsp minced fresh parsley

3. Bake muffins 14-17 minutes or until golden brown.

Actually, white chili is my fave. I like how it's a little bit lighter than the red kind. Well, "light,'' if chili can actually ever be considered that. Hah.

This white chili looks great. It's such a great change from the norm. I love the addition of pepper jack in the corn muffins. Yum!
