White Chicken

Chili Recipe

By David Angell

1 1/2 pounds chicken, cut up into small chunks

1 cup chopped onion

1 can chicken broth

2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely

2 teaspoons cumin seed (Angell said the whole seed is important; the ground type will not withstand the long cooking time and will make your chili "muddy.")

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves (use the leaves, not ground)

3 15-ounce cans great northern beans

1 chopped yellow bell pepper

3 fresh jalapeo chili peppers

4 ounces Pepper Jack cheese (Monterey jack with jalapeos)

In a five-quart pot combine the chicken, onions, chicken broth, garlic, cumin and oregano.

Let cook until chicken is done (about one hour on low heat). Add drained beans. Refrigerate overnight.

One hour before serving time, add the bell pepper and jalapeno peppers.


Ten minutes before serving, top chili with pepper jack cheese.
