Leah Behr: White Chicken Chili Orr What?

White Chicken Chili Orr What?

I had a plan last Friday to set out to make some sort of chicken soup. As usual, I went to Pinterest to compare recipes. After stumbling upon what I thought to be the perfect one, I headed to the market and picked up all the ingredients. 

Bran's roommate came home and asked me what I was cooking and when I told him, he told me that his mom makes his favorite white chicken chili. He happened to have her recipe on hand and when I compared the two...they were almost identical! Hers actually sounded a little better, including the addition of green enchilada sauce; and since family recipes are always the best...I set off to make her version. It was soooo good!

Here's the Orr Family's White Chicken Chili Recipe: 

1 medium onion
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 jalepeno (seeded & diced)
32oz box of chicken broth
15oz can green chile sauce (Hatch or Las Palmas)
11oz can corn (white or yellow, drained)
15oz can great northern or cannelloni beans (drained & rinsed)
juice from 1/4 lime
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
2-3 Tbsp Cilantro

I actually used 2 cans of Great Northern Beans, and 1 Large Shallot instead of the onion & minced garlic. 

Top with Pepper Jack Cheese, Tortilla Strips, Cilantro & Sour Cream.
