Mexican Chili

Originally a lot of similar recipes are called "White Chili" which irked me because they seemed like a mexican stew to me. So I named 'mine' a Mexican Chili. Call it whatever you want, just make it!

10 oz. white northern beans, soaked overnight, drained and rinsed
1 large onion, chopped
1 or 2 jalapeno peppers, diced
2 t cumin
heavy dash of oregano
1 chopped red bell pepper
1 chopped green bell pepper
2 T fresh minced garlic
3-4 cups chicken broth
2 c diced cooked chicken
salt to taste

Combine everything in a crockpot and cook on low 8-10 hours in an older crockpot or 6 in a newer (newer crocks are much much hotter!). Serve with a sprinkling of cheese, some cilantro, crushed tortilla chips and sour cream and salsa.Print Friendly and PDF
