Warm weather and fabulous produce are making their way into Georgia (I am SO excited about spring veggies and new recipes)!! But, before asparagus season is in full force, I have 2 great, satisfying soup/stew/chili recipes that I want to share to get you through the last cold front of the season :)
This chili recipe is one of my favorites. Its incredibly easy but it tastes like you slaved away for hours! It’s both light and filling at the same time…its hearty with lots of delicious flavor from the hominy and green chillies and full of protein and fiber from the chicken and white beans- its definitely a crowd pleaser and it freezes really well…what’s not to love?!
White Chicken Chili
1/2 C onion, chopped
1 C celery, chopped
1 C potato, chopped
1 t salt
1 t cumin powder
1 lb ground white meat chicken (you can use turkey too)
1 T sugar
4 cans white northern beans
2 cans white hominy
1 small can diced green chillies
1/2 t pepper
2 cans chicken stock
In a large pot over medium heat, sauté the onion, celery, potato and salt for 5 minutes.
Now, add the ground chicken and ground cumin and cook for 5 more minutes.
Now for the easy part! Add the sugar and then the cans of white beans, the hominy, green chillies, the pepper and the chicken stock.
Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes.
Store in the fridge or freeze for later use!
