Chunky Bean and Chicken Chili

If you are looking for a chili recipe without the tomato base, try this hearty soup that calls for cannellini beans, green chiles, and Monterey Jack cheese.

  • 3 cups tortilla chips
  • 1 lb. chicken
  • 2 tsp. cooking oil
  • 2 19-oz. cans cannelini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 6 oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers (1-1/2 cups)
  • 1 4.5-oz. can diced green chilies
  • 1 14-oz. can reduced sodium chicken broth
  • Fresh Cilantro (optional)
  • Preheat broiler. Coarsely crush 2 cups of the chips.
  • In 4- to 5- quart Dutch oven brown chicken in hot oil over medium-high heat. Add beans, 1 cup of the cheese, the chilies, broth, 1/2 cup water; and crushed chips. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, for tortilla crisps, place remaining 1 cup chips on baking sheet lined with nonstick foil. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Broil 6 inches from heat for 1 to 2 minutes, until cheese is melted and begins to brown. Serve chili with tortilla crisps. Sprinkle cilantro. Makes 4 servings.
