White Chili - From Leanne at

White Chili - great way to use up some of that leftover Turkey :)

2 pounds chicken breasts, no skin, no bone, cut into pieces (Yes, go ahead and substitute Turkey here!)
2 onions, chopped
2 1/2 cups chicken broth, canned or homemade
1 (7 oz.) can green chiles, chopped
1 (16 oz.) jar salsa verde (green salsa)
1 teaspoon each: cumin and garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano
3 cups white beans, cooked (use canned or make yourself)
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped--optional
1 pound low-fat jack cheese, grated

In a large saucepan, heat a small amount of oil and saute the onion. When the onion is translucent, add chicken. Cook for a couple ofminutes, max. Don't let it stick and don't add a ton of oil to keepit cooking either. Add everything else, except the cilantro and cheese. If you want, after sauteeing the chicken and onion together, you could finish the recipe in a crock pot. If you do, cook on high for about 3 hours or so, if you want it to cook all day, put it on low. You just need to get it nice and hot. If you are doing this on the stove top, simmerfor about 20 minutes. Serve in nice big bowls, sprinkle with cilantro if you like, and some grated cheese. We like cornbread and a big salad too!

Love, Leanne

(*note from SupercoolHotmama - Yeah, Leanne, Kelly, and even Marla herself email me daily. They just can't get enough of me. Shhhh, don't tell them, but sometimes I even have to delete some of them without responding.)

Another great way to use up some of that turkey is by making Chicken/Turkey Enchiladas! YUM! (Didn't know I have a Recipe blog? Yep. I'm Chock full o' Secrets. Just scroll down a bit - but you could actually substitute Turkey in any of those fabulous Chicken recipes!)

Happy Thanksgiving All! Sure Love Ya!
