Lori's White Chili and a New Year Commitment


I was looking at Lori's White Chili pictures and recipe and thinking how good it looked and decided I would make it for dinner.   It called for cooked chicken so I poached three chicken breasts and then on my way to work I stopped and picked up the other ingredients I needed.
This is definitely a keeper.  Not only is it delicious (Moe called it incredible)but really easy and quick to make. Took less than 30 minutes to prepare. I also got to thinking about all the other wonderful recipes I've seen this last year on other food blogs and decided to make a commitment to try at least one new recipe a week from a fellow blogger's website.

Lori and I chatted about my new commitment and came up with an idea that we thought we would share.

Lori (of All That Splatters) and I are introducing Saturday Blog Showcase.  This is a wonderful opportunity to credit the many blogs we 'borrow' recipes from by sourcing that recipe and showcasing the originating blog as well as your own.  The recipe you choose to make from another blog can be anything from soup to nuts, from appetizers to desserts and everything in between!  You may, of course, make the recipe any day of the week; however, we'll set up Mr. Linky for you to sign in and link your post to on each Saturday.  Your post should include the actual recipe, as well as a link to the post of the originating blog for that recipe.  This way, all will be credited for the wonderful dishes created.  Also, please include the Saturday Blog Showcase logo in your post.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either myself or Lori via the email through our blogs.  One week I will be providing the link-up and the next week Lori will be fulfilling that function. Don't worry about trying to remember who's sponsoring the event that week - a link will be provided from either blog to whichever of us is hosting Saturday Blog Showcase!

We look forward to much participation and a lot of great cooking!!

The Dove's Nest White Chili
==========================
Source:  Lori at All That Splatters
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2-1/2 cups tomato, chopped or 2 cans (10 ounces each) of tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
6 fresh tomatillos, chopped
1 medium jalapeno, seeded, minced
2 cups chicken stock
1 7-ounce can green chilies, chopped
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup (heaping) chopped cilantro
2 19-ounce cans cannellini or Great Northern bean, undrained
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
salt & pepper to taste
sour cream
shredded Monterrey Jack or Cheddar cheese
Fried tortilla strips (optional)

Heat the olive oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat.  Add the onion.  Saute for 3 to 5 minutes or until softened.  Add the garlic.  Cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer; do not brown.

Add the tomatoes, tomatillos and jalapeno.  Cook until the tomatillos are tender, stirring occasionally.

Add the chicken stock, green chilies, chicken, oregano, cumin, cilantro, beans and lime juice. Cook until heated through, stirring frequently. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Ladle the chili into serving bowls.

Serve garnished with a dollop of sour cream, shredded cheese and fried tortilla strips (if using).

  2. I look forward to taking part in your new showcase. Just to clarify, when you say the post should include the actual recipe, do you mean the recipe as I prepared it with any modifications I made or the original recipe?

    Also, I take it the recipe can be from any food blog, not just a participating one, right?

    Thanks
    Robin

    p.s. I put it tin a comment so others could see if they also wanted clarification. Hope that's okay.

  3. Thanks Linda, The chili is so good and so quick I know that we will have it often. Going to pass the recipe on to Matthew. I know he will love it too.

    Robin, yes, the recipe can be from any food blog. Doesn't matter if they are participating or not. And since you are also linking to the Blog where the recipe originated from, you can post the recipe with your modifications and indicate "Adapted from" and the source.

    I'm glad you are going to participate.

  8. I have been visiting your site for months now and have finally got the gumption to comment. I love your recipes! Your philosophy that recipes should be shared is exactly how I feel.
    It's surprising here in Texas how many people refuse to share recipes. Seems such a waste! Thank you for a lovely web site.

  9. This looks yummy. I make a similar dish, but with out beans. Excited to try it with the beans. Instead of frying the corn tortillas, a healthy alternative is to slice into long strips and back at 225 for about 30-40 minutes until dry and crisp.

  10. Ann leave it to you and Lori to come up with such a great idea!

    Well, right off the bat you know I love the way you've captured the images; it looks positively irresistible. Those are such adorable bowls/casseroles, too.

  11. Lisa, Thank you. I've never understood the "not sharing" of recipes.

    Jain, you have to give Lori's chili a try. I know you will love it.

    Kate, Zurin, I hope you will participate in the Showcase.

    Mary, thank you for adding the logo to your sidebar. Your continued encouragement and support really means a lot to me.

  12. Such a terrific idea to prepare and showcase recipes from fellow bloggers, and thank you for hosting this event. I'm not much of a joiner but just wanted to commend you for creating and hosting this event. I know it's going to be fun and delicious to follow.

    This chili looks super. Going to save it for the allergic to everything kid. She could have this sans tortilla and dairy, but the base recipe is perfect for her. Thank you sooo much!
