Creamy White Chicken Chili

The first time I made my White Chili I was just hoping that the kids would EAT IT. I have some VERY picky eaters that can make dinner time... interesting. Imagine my surprise when they devoured the chili, asking for 2nds & 3rds! I wasn't even there to witness it, I was at a class.

After making it again tonight.... one of my kiddos told me that my White Chili has healing powers! He said it made him feel better and that it made his cold go away. (WOW! *Blush*) I don't know about that, but our almost 2 year old ate almost a full cup of it and he hardly eats ANYTHING! My husband and I tend to do a little victory dance every time we get him to eat more than a couple of bites of something! I guess this recipe is a keeper! We hope you like it!







Creamy White Chicken Chili

6 Cups Water
2 Cups Heavy Cream
8 Chicken Bullion Cubes, peeled and crushed
½ Cup Flour
6 Tablespoons Onion Flakes
2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
A Pinch Of :
    Mrs. Dash
    Cayenne Pepper
2 Cup Sour Cream
4 pounds cooked boneless skinless chicken breast, diced (4 breasts)
4 Cans Cannellini Beans, Rinsed and drained
4 Cans Great Northern Beans, Rinsed and drained

In a LARGE saucepan, whisk together water, cream, bullion cubes, and flour. Add all the spices (everything else except the sour cream, beans, and chicken).

Bring sauce to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Sauce should have thickened a bit. Add sour cream and stir again, until sour cream is well incorporated. Add beans and chicken. Simmer for another 10 minutes, stirring frequently. The sauce should have the consistency of gravy. If  the sauce is too thin, simmer longer. If the sauce is too thick, you could add a little milk. Serve hot.

Note: If you want you can add a can of green chilies and some diced green peppers, but as I mentioned, our kids can be picky eaters. As is, every single one of them ate it. YEA!
