Sprout loves Dora too!

And I love White Chicken Chili...
Fast, flavorful and filled with fiber! Traditional chili takes a twist with ground chicken, white beans and green chilies. From eatbetteramerica.
Prep Time:35 min
Start to Finish:35 min
makes:6 servings (1 1/3 cups each)
1 lb ground chicken
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
3 cups Progresso® reduced-sodium chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
2 medium zucchini, chopped (about 3 cups)
2 cans (15 oz each) Progresso® cannellini beans or 2 cans (15 to 16 oz each) great northern beans, drained, rinsed
1 can (4.5 oz) chopped green chiles
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese

In 4- or 5-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, cook ground chicken, onion and garlic over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly, until chicken is no longer pink.

Stir in all remaining ingredients, except cheese. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until zucchini is tender.

Remove from heat; stir in cheese until melted.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): In step 1, cook chicken 6 to 8 minutes. In step 2, cover and simmer 12 minutes.

  1. Cute picture!

    And you just reminded me with your recipe, that's what I'm suppose to be making tonight. Looks pretty close to the same recipe too but instead of ground chicken (our supermarket didnt have any) I'm using boneless thighs. And I haven't decided if I'll be using the crock or the stove top method. But really, the same ingredients....I hope mine turns out as good as yours did.
