Default White Chicken Chili

Anyone have a good recipe? I tried one last night and my kids vetoed it (I don't blame them-wasn't great, kinda blah). I am looking for one that doesn't call for chiles or peppers. They do not have hot/spicy taste buds-neither do I.

OK-I'm giving out my secret recipe so you should feel really special
It's won 3 first place prizes and one second place prize in cook-offs
I just combined my favorite things from different recipes and made my own.

4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1 onion chopped
1 48oz jar great northern beans (undrained)
16oz salsa (i use fresh but use whatever your family likes)
2 4oz cans mild green chilies chopped (optional)
2t ground cumin
1 can 14oz creamed corn
3c chicken broth
2c Monterey jack cheese (or pepper jack)

Saute chicken with onion until just cooked. (I usually add a little garlic for flavor too) Combine with all of the rest of the ingredients and either cook on stove or I usually throw it all in a crock-pot and leave it on low all day.
Often times I make up a huge batch of chicken breasts in the crock-pot seasoned with a little garlic/onion and shred it and keep it in the freezer. I often use this instead of doing the sauteing when I make it. It's a lot easier and takes less time.
If you like a little creamier broth add a brick of cream cheese (cut up) and melt it in. If you like it thinner just add a little more broth.
I usually serve this with extra cheese, cilantro ( I LOVE cilantro!) sour cream and chips.
And now I'm hungry for white chicken!!!

Thank you! I'll have to give it a try in a few weeks, so they can forget about this last one first.

Have you frozen this with good results? I have made it once and my family LOVED it. I want to make it again and portion some out for DH's lunches.

I'm not sure if I've frozen it or not...we usually just eat the whole thing up before it gets bad

White Chili Recipe
• Yield: 8-10 servings
Add to shopping list
INGREDIENTS
• 1 lb large white beans, soaked overnight in water, drained
• 6 cups chicken broth
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 2 medium onions, chopped (divided)
• 1 Tbsp olive oil

• 2 tsp ground cumin
• 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
• 1/4 tsp ground cloves
• 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
• 4 cups diced cooked chicken
• 3 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese

METHOD


1 Combine beans, chicken broth, garlic and half the onions in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until beans are very soft, 3 hours or more. Add additional water (or watered-down broth), if necessary.
