*Added 10/7/10 - be sure to read over here as there were some changes that were made ... this recipe definitely needs to be played with*
One of the guys in the office brought this in. We all requested the recipe. The wife made a joke in the email about it being one of her sister wives recipes … for those who don’t know, multi wives living in the house are a/k/a sister wives … She’s from Utah, living in Paradise now … (I still laugh at this, her Husband didn't know what the heck she was talking about, they DO have 4 kids AND her sister DOES live next door, but it really is a separate house!)
5 whole cooked chicken breast, cut up and cubed (thinking of using some of the hurricane supply canned stuff)
3 tbs onion powder
7 cans of great white northern beans, rinsed (you can use less if you don't want it as beany) (I only have Cannelini beans and am considering using them up in this)
1 ½ cup chicken broth
12 oz green chilies diced
2 tbs ground cumin
1 tbs ground red pepper (cayenne or if not as hot, use chili powder)
16 oz sour cream. Full fat recommended, not as creamy if less fat
2 lb Monterey jack cheese, shredded
Combine chicken, beans, chilies broth and spices. Bring to a boil. Simmer 30 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in sour cream and cheese. Heat until cheese is melted. Do NOT boil as the sour cream will separate.
We had these in bread bowls, which, really, were just oversized Kaiser rolls. Delicious!
