White Bean Chicken Chili

White Bean Chicken Chili

Introduction

By using the Poblano Cream Cheese Sauce submited by MIJAHA1 as the base, I created this hearty Chicken Chili. By using the Poblano Cream Cheese Sauce submited by MIJAHA1 as the base, I created this hearty Chicken Chili.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    8 oz. dry, Small White Beans
    1 lb. (raw weight) Chicken Breast
    2-3 Poblano Peppers, roasted & peeled
    8 oz. Low Fat Neufchatal Cream Cheese
    1 qt. Chicken Stock (Kitchen Basics), divided
    1 Garlic Clove, peeled
    1 cube Chicken Bouillon

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees or warm bbq grill.
~
Coat poblano peppers with a little bit of oil. Either grill directly on a bbq grill or place in a heavy, oven-proof pan. Roast for 20 minutes or until skin starts to char and bubble.
~
Immediately remove and place into sealed container or plastic bag. (Hint: Roasted peppers can be prepared and frozen at this point for several months). In about 10 minutes, skin should peel right off the peppers. Split and remove seeds.
~
~
(I have never tried, but I would imagine canned, chopped chilis and canned beans would be an easy alternative to making them from scratch. I just like to make things from whole foods.)
~
~
Cook beans according to package directions until tender.
~
In a blender place peppers, cream cheese, 1 cup chicken stock and garlic. Blend until smooth.
~
Cut chicken breasts into small pieces and brown in a soup pot sprayed with cooking spray. Add remaining stock and chicken bouillon and simmer until chicken is tender. Add beans and chili mixture. Simmer until warm.
~
1 cup = 1 serving
