White Chicken Chili

So apparently it is supposed to snow today. I realize that now that it is a complete blizzard outside. It’s a soup day for sure. Nothing warms me up on a cost, blustery day like a hot bowl of soup. This one has a little kick to it, just like I like it.

White Chicken Chili
Olive oil
2 pounds of Chicken Breasts
2 t. Cumin
1 T. Chili Powder
1 t. Oregano
Pinch of cayenne pepper
2 T Butter
2 T Olive Oil
1 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans fire-roasted green chilies
2 T flour
1/4 cup Salsa Verde (optional)
Tabasco – 5-10 splashes
1 cans of cannellini beans
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
Garnish: Sour cream, Green Onion, Cheese, Rice
Heat oil in stock pot. Combine chicken with spices in bowl. Brown chicken to about 3/4 done.

Remove chicken from pan. Heat additional oil and butter. Sauté onions until translucent. Add garlic. Add poblanos and green chilies. Add flour, stir to incorporate, cook for 2 mins.

Add chicken stock a little at a time. Add salsa Verde and tabasco. Allow soup to come back to a simmer and add chicken back to pot. Simmer for 5 mins and add cream and white beans.
