Cold front coming...

Even though our cold front tomorrow will only bring our "high" temp down to 70 degrees - you might still consider this recipe. We had it awhile back when it was really cold and it really hit the spot. It is a combination of several white chili recipes I found. It was wonderful!!!
Creamy White Chili

3 chicken breasts, cut into 1/2" cubes
1 medium onion, chopped
3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
1 can (15 1/2 oz.) Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) chicken broth
2 cans (4 oz. each) chopped green chilies (or jalapenos if you prefer)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
8 oz. Monterrey Jack Cheese
Garnishes: sour cream, avocado, cilantro, and fried tortilla strips

In a large saucepan, saute chicken, onion and garlic in oil until chicken is no longer pink. Add beans, broth, chilies and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese, sour cream and cream. Add your garnishes at this time. Serve immediately. Makes about 6 servings.
