White Chicken Chili

I have a friend who has been dying for this recipe for a long long time. I was going to post it in the fall but, she won't leave me alone. She has been asking for it for about a year so I decided to get with it and post it.

I don't have my own original picture of the dish so, until I get one here is a picture of my brothers white chickens. (they are hiding, they know they are white and I am writing about white chicken Chili.) There's a Rooster in there too. He thinks he's quite the Cock of the walk with all of his lady friends there.

Now of course you don't need white Chicken's for this recipe. Any old chicken will do. Maybe even a Rooster.

Here goes:

1 1/4 lbs. boneless skinless chicken

2 (15 oz.) can great northern beans or navy beans

1 (15 oz.) can hominy or white corn

1 (1 1/4 oz. envelope taco seasoning

1 (4 1/2 oz.) can of chopped green chilies

1 (10 3/4 oz.) can condensed cream of chicken soup

1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth

1/2 cup sour cream

chopped green onion (optional)

Monterrey jack cheese (optional)

1. Place chicken in your slow cooker.

2. Top with beans and corn.

3. In a medium bowl, combine taco seasoning, chilies, condensed soup, and chicken broth. Pour over top of ingredients in the crock pot.

4 . Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hrs.

5. Before serving, stir gently to break up chicken, then stir in the sour cream.

6. Serve topped with green onions and jack cheese, if desired.

This is easy, easy, easy, my son in law is who actually found this recipe, made it and won a contest at a church party with it. That's where my friend Julie tried it and loved it. Here it is Julie Enjoy!!!!!

I also have a question to my bloggy friends and some statements.

Papa has always liked to pop by the house with guests unannounced. You know, to give them a tour of our house. (What an idiot) Our house is an ordinary house. He has been doing this for 30 years and I have been killing him over it for 30 years.

One day he brought over a co worker. I had a green facial mask on and the house was a mess.

There have been many other incident reports I could give you but, I know you are all already bored. So I will move on.

He came home yesterday and told me he invited a bunch of guys over for a B.B.Q. Monday night. Did he call me and say "Hey, how do you feel about this?" Are you up to having this on Monday night?" Is it Monday or Tuesday night that you shave your mustache and beard?" NOTHING, just the announcement.

I was p.o'd and let him know. I didn't have the energy to fight it out. We had a squabble. Plus my DIL's were here and (whatever, I was drunk on Cheesecake. We had just gone to lunch.)

Today however, on the way from Cabela's where Papa bought his new beverage cart for said party. I was in the mood.

I told him HE knows not to invite people over w/o discussing it w/ me first. I don't have to discuss when I invite people over most of the time because a. they are always our kids and 2. He doesn't have to do a thing to get the house ready for such events.

He said to me " So, you are telling me I have a house that I cannot invite anyone over to w/o your permission?" I said " Yes, that is what I am telling you!!!!" DUH. I have been telling him that for 30 years. These are not drop by friends or what have you. These are invited guests who I need them to know my house is spotless. My toilets are clean, my mustache hair is not in the sink. I have make up on etc. He doesn't get that the way a home looks (like it or not) is reflected on the woman of the house.

So my question is: Am I wrong women of America? Should I let Papa run amuck and invite everyone over willy nilly? I have to say I don't care what you say. I will still feel the same. I am just interested in your thoughts and Papa is still in the dog house.

First of all - I have never met anyone who does not like White Chili - it is so good! My recipe is different from yours so I will give yours a whirl too - I love new recipes! Thanks for sharing :D

I TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY AGREE on the houseguest thing. I actually do not like people just dropping over at all. I am not that kind of girl because I often come home and if nothing is planned I will totally relax and not worry if the dishes are done right away, etc...
So if someone stops by unannounced it can get embarrassing. I have been known to just let the doorbell ring and pretend no one's home. I know that's bad but sometimes...
I would be furious if my husband invited people over without my knowledge - You are totally correct the house is a reflection on the woman!

You really do post the best recipes.

And your husband is wrong. I would give him a swift kick!

You are totally right! The only people I don't mind dropping by are my parents because of that unconditional love thing, but everyone else needs to call at least an hour a head of time. I have been known to not shower until later in the evenings on cleaning days and that could be kind of stinky too! Come to think of it I was embarrassed yesterday when you came over and had to come in and wait for my dad to get here because my house was messy.
P.S. just so you know my house was messy because Tuesday I had cleaned the bathroom walls, sink cupboard, and the hallway walls, and weird vent thing with q-tips, and I was to tired to clean the rest of my house.

Papa better get his mail forwarded to the doghouse!
You are so totally right!!!!
Sheesh there is nothing worse than finding the houseguest walking into a bathroom with your mustache evidence in the sink.
Is there nothing holy anymore???
Besides, what if they came home and found you drunk of cheesecake? Then the coworkers would be all feeling sorry for Papa. "oh, his wife is a closet drunk" and stuff like that.

No, I think you should whip Papa into shape. Give it another 30 years and he may just get it!
Good luck.

I love White Chicken Chili by the way!

Connie said...

I would die if my hubs just walked in with people to see the house/watch TV/eat PB&J/etc.!

What if I was sitting on the couch wearing just my underwear and a full beard, reading a trashy novel, eating bon-bons and picking my nose! Hmmm...I think I know what I'm going to be doing today!

Love the recipe. Crock-pot recipes are the best and I find white chicken chili to be delicious!

Have a question. How long does the cougar urine last? Do you have to buy a refillable gallon size or does a purse size last a while?

I had to go back and reread. Is "Pops" your husband or dad or father-in-law? Oh well, doesn't matter. NO unexpected company at all for any reason. I like for my home to be in perfect order for me to show it off. I would say the next time he does this, have suitcase ready (as a prop of course) and a hat and coat. When he brings the unexpected "guests" in... grab all three and your purse and head out the door.. slamming it of course!! Now he can entertain on his own.
Okay... well, this is a little much but I would at least consider it.
Yummo on the chili!
Thanks for the visit.

Okay, between your post and Tauna and Connie's comments...I am laughing so much I can't even think of a coherent thing to write!
Can't wait to try the recipe...
And the doghouse for that man, for sure! :)

Thanks for the recipe Tami! Wahoo!!!!

Lorilee said...

I agree with you! He should check with you unless HE wants to do the cleaning and preparation!

Mimi Sue said...

I love chicken chili too but I agree it is a recipe for cold weather not hot. You are so right to be ticked. There has to be rules! Like give me a weeks notice and Papa must clean 1 bathroom and do all the vacumming and take you out to dinner for two weeks straight. Or something like that. Make him suffer just a little. Mimi

Deanna said...

That white chili sounds awesome. The first sign of Fall weather, it is going in my crock pot!

This papa here would be totally in the dog house if he pulled that stunt. Actually, neither of us make plans without consulting the other. That's just the way it is!

Barbaloot said...

I had trouble getting past "drunk on cheesecake." That sounds like the most wonderful feeling in the world.

Debbie said...

You are, of course, completely in the right. First of all, you're the woman so you are correct! Secondly, they never quite understand all that goes into having people over. Stand your ground!

Grand Pooba said...

Dang, how did I miss this post?

I whole heartedly agree. I have to have the house, myself, and the animals all purdied up before I let anyone come in. I need at least a 24 hour warning. Unless I still haven't shaved my mustache, then I need a 72 hour warning.

So are you saying I need to call to make sure you aren't hairy, scary, dirty, or green before I make a surprise visit?

Nonna Beach said...

I detest it when people drop by unannounced.I think it's rude and I have no obligation to invite them in for anything. In fact, I get rid of them ASAP. ( hardcore, I know )

If my Hubs ( He's called Papa too ) invites without my O.K. he's in deep Doo - Doo!!! Announcing he's having company over instead of asking if it's O.K. isn't acceptable and he would be in the doghouse too !
