White Bean Chili
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast cubed
1 med onion, chopped
1 ½ tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2-4 cans great northern white beans, rinsed & drained
1 can chicken broth
2 cans green chiles
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp pepper
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
*1 c sour cream
* ½ whipping cream or canned milk
Cook chicken, onion, garlic powder in large pot until chicken is no longer pink. Add beans, broth, chiles, and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat until simmers and let it cook for 30 min. Take off heat and add sour cream and whipping cream.
PS. I used home-canned chicken and did not have cumin. I did not have broth, but used the liquid the chicken was in as well as about a cup of water, plus a cube of chicken boullion. Also, I did not add the optional ingredients, but did add a splash of 1% milk to add some more liquid. My chili was thick, but that's the way I like it. It got a stamp of approval from the roommates and boyfriend. :)
PPS. If you haven't already, read the post below this one.
Yesterday, I wrote a sad post.
It was kinda depressing.
I posted it.
I got more sad.
So I deleted it.
Today, I just want to say:
Sometimes, life really sucks. (excuse the language)
it will always get better.
Now, my day wasn't the worst I've ever had.
But it sure seemed pretty dark.
And it reminded me of this quote:
"Each of us will have our own Fridays—those days when the universe itself seems shattered and the shards of our world lie littered about us in pieces. We all will experience those broken times when it seems we can never be put together again. We will all have our Fridays.
But I testify to you in the name of the One who conquered death—Sunday will come. In the darkness of our sorrow, Sunday will come.
No matter our desperation, no matter our grief, in this life or the next, Sunday will come."
-Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin-
