White Chili

My friend Paula made this last week for our homeschool group. Its beyond amazing! I just lifted this off her email so I won't lose it again. You know, I really need a "recipe" blog ...

White Chili

5-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 onion, chopped
1 small carton half and half
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 8 oz. carton sour cream
2 small cartons heavy whipping cream
4 cans Great Northern beans
1 can Rotel
1 can corn, drained
1 1/2 tsp. salt, garlic powder, and onion powder
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. cumin

Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Saute chicken and onion until chicken is no longer pink. Add all other ingredients and heat through.
**You can lighten this recipe up by using more half and half and less whipping cream, using fat free sour cream, and low fat soup. Also, you can control the heat of it by using milder Rotel instead of regular Rotel.


Tell you what I did, I set up a gmail account (LeniCooks) just for recipes, so I can mail them to myself, and the list is searchable. No more losing recipes in computer crashes!

Also makes it easier when someone asks for the recipe!

Actually, I made this last night. I decided I like it better with SIX cans of beans.

It'd be good with sour-cream and cheddar sprinkled on top. Maybe.

I finally decided to make this last night. It was delicious but I made so many modifications that it was definitely not White Chili. No beans, Rotel, cumin, chili powder nor canned soup. It included basil, red pepper and homemade chicken broth and roux. I guess it was more chicken corn chowder Italian style. Thanks anyway for pointing me to the path of a great creamy chicken soup.

UPDATE: Crazy ice-storm in the Mid-west killed my internet :(

Anyway, and you think I'd remember the url to post but I don't right this minute ... here's my thought for today ...

You know how sometimes you get a great new haircut or a fabulous dress and you actually have to ASK out loud "Don't you just love this hair cut (or dress)!?!" ... and then even if they agree with you there's always that other question in the back of your mind "Did they honestly mean it, because if they had wanted to say something they wouldn't have needed prodding?"

I really really really hate that feeling.
