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


    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


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

    Wow...I really liked this soup. It has a creamy taste, but it's not too heavy. It was really easy too. I didn't include the pepper portion of the recipie, just chicken, cream cheese, broth, beans & garlic...but it was absolutly delicious! Thank you so much...this is a favorite of mine! - 1/19/11
