Two nights ago, left work around 5pm b/c I went in around 8am. Note to self…leaving at 5pm in Atlanta isn’t going to get you home faster. I left and realized I left my glasses at work..Wes said go back, I said no thanks. I then called Jenny and (as it was dusk) she could relate to the whole ‘not being able to see so well’, as she has been in glasses denial until about last week. Jenny was freezing her ass off getting her tree and some garland – that is 2 stops in the cold in NC for Jenny who hates the cold people, take note!
Talked about what I had made the night before – overnight of course – White Chicken Chili. Jenny, at this point, lamented that she could be enjoying the chili if I was there but that I could also be enjoying the wine she was drinking in Charlotte while I was STILL in Atlanta traffic. Jenny was planning on enjoying some ravioli from Trader Joe’s – ain’t nothing wrong with that!
I haven’t made this chili in quite some time, so I kind of ‘winged’ the recipe:
Saute 1/2 a white onion, chopped with about 3-4 garlic cloves and some chopped jalapenos or green chilis – throw those babies in depending on how spicy you like things
4 cups chicken stock (homemade…but of course) 🙂
4 chicken thighs (you can also use chicken breasts, but I didn’t have any of those around)
2 cans white corn, drained
2 cans white beans – I used white pinto (I know…who knew?) and white northern beans
About a half a bag of frozen spinach from the freezer – just found that and threw it in for color
Ground Cumin, Ground Coriander, Some ground Red Pepper, White Pepper, Salt
I pulled the chicken out after about 2-3 hours and removed it from the bone and put it back in. Now, you could also do this with ground turkey-about a pound
I let it cook overnight…
Turned it off in the AM and put it in the fridge and then skimmed the fat off when I got home and reheated in the microwave in bowls
Served it with tortilla strips (you can crush up tortilla chips), shredded Monterrey Jack cheese, and a dollop of sour cream – Wes added a little Sriacha – loving the Rooster Sauce!
Had it again for dinner tonight – YUM!
