white chicken chili

it turned temporarily colder than usual for early november so chili made it to this week's menu. white chili trumps regular chili all day every day and i maybe changed ed's mind on the matter as well. i'm probably late to the ball game with this tip, but using an already prepared rotisserie chicken from the store is kind of genius.

white chicken chili
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 cups cooked chicken, shredded (use a rotisserie chicken from the store)
2 cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen sweet corn
1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1 box (32 oz) chicken or vegetable stock
1 lime
dash of red pepper flakes (if you like some heat)
salt and pepper to taste

1. saute onion in a few glugs of olive oil until translucent. add garlic and cook for another minute.
2. add shredded chicken, rinsed beans, corn, green chiles (with juice from can), cumin, oregano, and red pepper flakes.
3. stir to combine and add chicken/vegetable stock.
4. bring to a boil and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
5. add salt/pepper to taste and juice of 1 lime.

top with cilantro (gross), sour cream, tomatoes, tortilla chips, and an extra dash of lime juice.

Yum! I made a white bean chili the other day that we all enjoyed, but I think our favorite chicken soup so far has been Lemon Chicken Soup with Orzo. Such a delicious combination of flavors! Here's the recipe: http://makingroomwithus.blogspot.it/2012/10/lemony-chicken-orzo-soup-with-sweet.html.

This sounds super yummy. I'm a big fan of the white chili as well. Did you eat any? Did you just leave the chicken out of your portion? I'm trying to incorporate a few more vegetarian recipes into my winter-weather recipe index.
