Jill's Chicken Chili For the 1998 Chili Party

Sister-In-Law Chili!

My sister-in-law, Sue Linster, is a fabulous cook and is an endless source for great chili recipes.  Last chili party my Green Hornet Chili recipe was derived from one of Sue's all-time greats.  This is my first try at chicken chili but, knowing what a great cook Sue is, it should be fabulous!!  Only modification I'll be making to the recipe is to UP THE HEAT!  Perhaps a dash of chipotle chili powder or two & some more fiery peppers added to the pot for all the heat fiends.  Stay tuned for the results!!

1 lb Great Northern White Beans (or 3 - 16oz cans)
1 T olive oil
2 medium onions
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 - 4oz cans of chopped green chiles
2 t ground cumin
1.5 t dried oregano, crumbled
.25 t cayenne pepper  (or more, depending on your heat tolerance!!)
6 cups chicken stock or broth
4 cups chopped, cooked chicken breast
3 cups grated montery jack (12 oz)
sour cream

Heat oil in large heavy pot to med/high.  Add onions & saute until translucent (about 10 mins).  Add garlic, chicken, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper.  Saute 2 minutes.  Add beans & stock & bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer 2 hours or more.  Add 1 cup of cheese. Stir until cheese melts.   Season with salt & pepper.  Serve with remaining cheese & sour cream.
