White Bean Chili

Can you tell I needed a few days to recover from the Christmas high I was on! It’s been a whirl wind of a week! We returned from a beautiful week with family where we witnessed the last of the in laws getting hitched! It was a great gathering. It’s not often we can
all be together like that!

We got home just in time to finish last minute details before the Jolly Fat Guy came for his visit! The girls were happily slumbering while we stuffed the stockings and placed Santa’s presents under the tree! I still have to laugh! I can’t believe I’m in
the “Being Santa”stage of my life!CRAZY!!!

So here I sit still practically enclosed in trash and Christmas remnants! Don’t you think it would be a great idea for trash day to automatically be moved to the day after Christmas! We have to wait a week to get the evidence of over indulging completely out of here! And just when I think it’s all collected and bagged there’s more!!!

ok…moving on…

So if any of you cooked a Turkey for the big day and your left overs are staring at you every time you open your refrigerator I have the perfect little recipes for you!

I had this White Bean Chili at a friends house and fell pretty hard for it! I’ve made it a few times now and have adjusted it to work without fail and I have to say it’s a new family fav! So grab that Tupperware of Turkey and put it to work! You won’t regret it!

White Bean Chili

5 Cans White Beans
4 Cups Chicken Broth
1 Large Onion Chopped
1 Large Can Diced Green Peppers
2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 Bag frozen Corn
3 cups Chopped Cooked Chicken or Turkey

Saute your chopped onions in 1 Tablespoon Oil until soft. Add it to your Large pot of simmering Chicken Broth. Add three cans of drained Beans. Take the other 2 cans of beans and BLEND blend in your blender. Add them to the large pot! This is the perfect way to thicken your Chili! Combined the remaining ingredient and simmer for approximately 20-30 min or until the corn and chicken is heated throughout! Serves about 8!

    Question for ya…do you drain the beans before blending them?

    I personally HATE that thick oozy juice that is in canned beans…i usually ALWAYS drain them…but wondering if it might be helpful to keep it when blending?

    thanks! LOVE your blog!

    I always drain off the beans and after everything is hot and has simmered for a while I add sour cream and heavy whipping cream, that adds so much flavor and makes it a little thicker too :)
