White beans and chicken are a perfect alliance in this hearty, savory chili with just the right amount of spice. All topped off with colorful veggies!
2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 cups finely chopped onion
½ cup chopped celery
½ cup chopped carrots
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2 (4.5-ounce) cans chopped green chiles, undrained
1 cup water
2 (15.5-ounce) cans cannellini or white beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
Few splashes of hot sauce such as Tabasco (season to taste)
1 cup shredded light cheese (cheddar, Mexican blend or Monterey Jack)
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; cook 10 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently.
2 Heat a large Dutch oven or heavy pot over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion, celery and carrots to pan; sauté 6 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently.
3 Add garlic; sauté 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in cumin and dried oregano; sauté 1 minute. Stir in chiles; reduce heat to low, and cook 10 minutes, partially covered.
