What's for supper?

Tonight we are having White Chili with lime, sour cream, cheese and blue corn chips. For dessert we are having fudge.

White Chili

3 cans drained and rinsed canellini beans
1 onion diced
3 tsp garlic
2 Tablespoons butter
4 cups chicken broth more as needed
1 small can green chilies

1 full chicken breast
1 chicken drumstick

boil and shred chicken

Saute onion and garlic in butter. Add chicken broth and canellini beans.

1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. cilantro

In a large heavy pot saute onion and garlic, Add the beans, the 4 cups broth, chilies, oregano, cayenne and cilantro and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer gently, adding more broth as needed, until the beans are very tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Add the shredded chicken and continue to simmer. Serve with tortilla chips, Cheese and sour cream. I think a squeeze of lime would also go well with this Chili. We also will add Louisiana Hot sauce to taste to our bowls.
