White Chili

White Chili

You will need:
4 garlic cloves
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 cups sliced green onions
4 oz. can of chopped green chilis, drained
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp ground cumin
2 15 oz cans of navy beans (or if you're like me and want to cut down on sodium buy one 15 ounce bag of navy beans and cook them--this increases cooking time by a lot)
10 oz. cream of chicken soup
10 oz can of chicken broth (or save the water you boiled your chicken in when you cooked it--again cuts down on sodium intake)
1 1/2 cut water
4 chicken breasts, chopped and cooked in boiling water
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1 cup of Monterey Cheese (or really whatever cheese you want)

Cook the chopped chicken. Saute the garlic in the olive oil for one minute. Add green onions, green chilis, oregano, and cumin. Saute for four minutes. Put the ingredients in a large pot. Add chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, chicken, beans, water, and cayenne pepper. Boil for one minute. Add cilantro and cheese and simmer with the lid on for 15-20 minutes.

It's good with tortilla chips, sour cream, cheese, etc. Brandon loves it! Enjoy!
