This is such a chaotic time of year, running from holiday parties to concerts to the mall. I don’t know about you, but sometimes my stress level can go through the roof and dinner just seems like one more thing on my to-do list. During the holidays, I look for easy, comforting meals for my family to eat on the run. This is one of our favorites and I keep the ingredients on hand all winter long. You can throw it in the slow cooker ahead of time or just warm everything up on the stove a half-hour before dinner.
Warm-up White Chili
2 cans white chicken, drained (rotisserie works great too)
2 cans white corn, juice and all
2 cans white beans, drained and rinsed
2 cans chicken broth
2 (4 oz) cans diced green chilis
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 c. minced dried onion
1 clove chopped garlic
2 to 4 chopped limes
white corn chips
grated cheddar and monterey jack cheese
Mix all ingredients except the lime, chips and cheese in a large pan. Bring the chili to a boil then turn down the heat and simmer 30 minutes. Cut the fresh lime in quarters. Fill the bottom of each bowl with broken corn chips and ladle chili on top of chips. Squeeze fresh lime juice on top of the chili and top with cheese.
