White Chili: Go Fix It

Below is an email I wrote to Brett and Morgan because they like to cook foods that are for tough guys. I wasn't going to post it but then someone asked me to... so I was all... "sure thing!". Please excuse my language here. This wasn't originally supposed to go public. I was speaking "man" language. That's "manguage".

Listen up!

Drop what you're doing and go to the store and buy:

1 onion
2 garlic cloves
2 cans cannelini beans
Baby spinach
Chipotle chili powder (or reg chili powder but chipotle rules)
14-16 oz of broth (veg or chicken)
Sour cream (optional)
Shredded cheddar (optional)

Now go home.

Walk in the door and drop your things (not the groceries) one at a time to form a trail to the kitchen (bc that's what you menfolk do).

1. In a soup pot, chop then saute the onion in olive oil.
2. Chop and add the garlic.
3. Add 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp chili powder. Mix it about. Just for a minute.
4. Drain your beans and add them to the pot, also add your broth.
5. Rip about 1 cup of the baby spinach into even smaller pieces. Be fierce. Drop that in there.
6. Stir. Bring to a boil, then simmer.
7. Go kiss your wife.
8. After 30 minutes, with occasional stirring, it is ready.

Serve with a scoop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cheese if you're not vegan today.

Thank me later. Fo rizzzzzle.

ok, here's one of the best however you could substitute other beans I guess

1 pound large white beans
6 cups chicken broth (veg broth)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium onions, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
2 4-ounce cans mild green chilies, chopped
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 cups diced cooked chicken breast (optional if you want veg)
optional toppings:
3 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
Salsa (see note)
Sour cream

Sherri,

Awesome. I'll try it :) I'm scared to put cloves though...

afraid of the cloves? I really like this recipe. Before drastically lowering my meat intake I liked soaking/simmering the beans in chicken broth, but veg broth is good too. I love the flavors of all the spices. Let me know how you like it!
