We are in the middle of a wintery blizzardy snow-pocolypse ’round these parts of Michigan as I type this. In fact, today I have a snow day–which doesn’t happen much in my urban district.
What is perfect for cold, yucky winter weather? CHILI! and CORNBREAD!
I love chili as much as the next warm-blooded American, but if I am honest, I love white chili even more, so I am sharing with you my favorite white chili recipe that I was given by my aunt.
- 2 jars Great Northern Beans (large jars)
- 1 stick butter
- 2 red peppers
- 1 large onion
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon white pepper
- 2 cups water
- 1 packet Mexican Velveeta Cheese (cubed)
- 1 can green chilis (optional (I don't use because we don't like the heat))
- 2 cans chicken (optional (I use because the hubs likes meat in his chili))
|in a large pot (I use my dutch oven) saute the peppers and onions in the butter for about 10 minutes|
|Add water, drained beans, chicken, chilis, cumin, and white pepper. Let simmer for about 15 minutes.|
|Add cubes of Velveeta and allow to melt through.|
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup yellow corn meal
- 2/3 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 cup canola oil
|Mix all ingredients together in a bowl|
|pour into a greased 8x8 (or 9x9) pan and bake at 400 degree F for 20-25 minutes|
