White Bean Chili

White Bean Chili

You just can't beat a great bowl of chili this time of year!   And a chili that the kids LOVE just as much as the adults is a definite favorite!  Another added bonus...this is a 'one pot' soup!   Serve this soup with some homemade bread, bread sticks, or rolls, add a great salad and your family will love you!  The Bergun  Family made a version of this chili for my husband and sons after a day of fishing in Utah.  They loved it so much they came home with the recipe!  (...and I only made a few changes. )  If you want to kick the heat up a notch, add 1/8 teaspoon (or more if desired) red pepper flakes to the chicken broth. 

1 lb. ground turkey or 4 chicken breasts, chopped
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
2 ½ cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon cumin seed
18 ounces frozen or canned corn, drained
8 ounces canned green chilies
30 ounces canned white beans, like Great Northern or cannellini
1 teaspoon cumin
3 tablespoons lime juice
Blue Corn Chips
2 avocados

In a large pot add olive oil and sauté onion and garlic with the ground turkey or chopped chicken until meat is cooked through.  Add chicken broth, lemon pepper, cumin seed and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 20-30 minutes.  Add beans, corn, cumin and lime juice and simmer 5 minutes, top each serving with blue corn chips and chopped avocado.
