Recipe - Danny's White Chicken Chili

One of the tastiest recipes ever!  It has more of a soup than a chili consistency, but it is amazing.  I like to bake some Rhoads Rolls to go with it and dip in the juices.

Ingredients -

3 lbs chicken breast, cut into small cubes
1 chopped yellow onion
1 14oz can chicken broth
1 4oz can mild chopped green chilis
1 4oz can hot chopped green chilis
2 15oz cans Great Northern Beans (white), rinsed and drained
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp chili powder
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup whipping cream

In a large soup pan add 1 tbsp olive oil and onions, cook over medium high heat until they are soft and just starting to brown.  Add the chicken and cook until no longer pink.  Add all other ingredients EXCEPT the sour cream and whipping cream.  Bring to a boil, then bring the heat to low.  Let simmer without a lid.  The longer is cooks, the better it is, I like to let mine cook for at least 2 hours.  Just before serving, remove from heat and add sour cream and whipping cream.

Recipe - Ultra Healthy Chili

One of my favorite recipes.  So tasty, even the guys won't mind that it's made with turkey.  I don't like a lot of heat, so for extra kick add more chili powder.  Serve topped with cheese for extra protein  :)

Ingredients -

2 lbs ground turkey (I use 1lb 99% and the other 92% or similar)
1 chopped medium onion
1 28oz can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 15oz can pinto beans, washed and drained
1 15oz can black beans, washed and drained
1 14oz can low sodium chicken broth
2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground sea salt
1/2 cup sliced olives
1/2 cup chopped green onions

Spray a large soup pan with olive oil.  Add the onions and cook over medium-high heat until they're soft and just starting to brown.  Add the ground turkey and garlic powder and let cook until no longer pink.  Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for at least 30 minutes.
