Cooking

It is that time of the month again to replenish my freezer with meals. Today I have made four meals of fajita's, three of split pea soup, two of white chili, 2 of chicken tacos, and 2 of chicken burritos. It is tiring but really I have only been in the Kitchen for about 5 hours and I am just about done. Tomorrow I will do Tortilla soup and then just a few crock-pot meals for the month makes about 22.

Here is a great recipe I found and Love it! It is from a lady in my ward. Try it, it is so good!

Hi,

I'm glad that you liked the chili, it is one of my family's favorites! Here's the recipe:

Creamy White Chili

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes*
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cans (15 1/2 oz each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14 1/2 oz) chicken broth
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1/2 cup whipping (heavy) cream

In a large saucepan, saute chicken, onion, and garlic powder in oil until chicken is no longer pink. Add beans, broth, chopped green chilies, and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream and heavy cream. Serve immediately.

I have used chicken tenders that I cut up and cook with the onions, but I have also bought a rotisserie chicken and just used some of the meat from that, and I have also just put two cans of Swanson chicken in. If you use chicken that is already cooked, just brown the onions and garlic a while before adding the chicken.

Enjoy!

Hi Bonnie! Thanks for your comment on my blog, The Craft Patch. I DO have my own laminator. My husband got it for me for Valentine's Day...isn't he sweet?! I think he bought it at Wal-Mart and I buy the laminating sheets in bulk at Sam's Club. If you like to make preschool-type projects, I would definitely recommend getting your own laminator! Hope that helps!

I like this kind of chili but my family dislikes it. I would still like to try this recipe. Looks great!
