White Chili

1 (14 1/2 oz.) can chicken broth
1 cup water
Put pre-soaked beans in a medium pan and cover with water.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat and allow to simmer 30 minutes.
Discard water. Cut chicken into 1" pieces and brown,
if desired, or simply put directly into crockpot.
Put all other ingredients into crockpot.
Stir to mix thoroughly. Cover and cook on

Greetings Lora! I'm Lora too! And I make this recipe as well - I was thinking about posting it and looked at the linky thing and thought "Well, I've already posted it!" Ha! It is the best white chili!
I'm a homeschooling mama in the south too! I'll have to stop back by!

After the little frozen blueberry issue, I'm going to ask before I even start...how long do I need to pre-soak the beans? The good news is that pre-soaking beans is supposed to take some of the whatever out of them that can irritate Hubby's gout.

Thanks for posting this. I've been watching for it and already printed it. Have a fun time!

Hi, Kayren,

I usually pre-soak my beans overnight and then proceed the next morning with my recipe. I'm not sure what the recommended soak time is, I'll try to google that and find out if there's a specific time frame. Good question!!:)

YUM! I am definitely going to save this recipe for later. I love White Chili.

Lora said...

OK, I googled the pre-soak time for dried beans. The site I looked at said to soak at least 6 hours or even up to 24 hours. The beans will double or triple in size depending on how long you soak them. Hope this helps!

This recipe sounds great! I have actually never tried white chili, but it sounds so good, I think I'll try to make this next week.
