I know that's not the most appetizing image, but trust me, it's delicious!
It's storming reeeally hard in Ohio, and this would be so good right now! I don't know why, but hearty soups and stuff like that sound yummy when it rains.
This is a conglomerate (cool word!) of recipes from around the interwebs. I wanted to make white chili, so I found a recipe and wrote down the ingredients. But I forgot to bookmark the recipe and I couldn't find it again, so I just threw together what I had bought, plus a few other things I found lying around.
- Fat free chicken broth
- Canned sliced carrots
- White beans
- Chicken breast
- Chopped spinach
- Fat free sour cream
- Any kind of white cheese
2. While the chicken is cooking, saute the chopped onion and garlic in butter
3. Put the cream, beans, spinach, carrots, and broth in a stockpot to simmer.
4. When the chicken and onion/garlic is finished cooking, add them to the stockpot.
5. Remove from heat. Just before serving, stir in the sour cream and cheese.
That's it! Mine turned out a little grainy, which my husband didn't mind but kind of bothered me. I'm all about texture. I think it might have been because I put the sour cream in too soon. Sometimes when I cook with fat free ingredients, they make the texture a little off. (Or sometimes very off!) Maybe it was because I used grated parmesan? It was all I had on hand.
Well anyway, it tasted wonderful. I think it's pretty low fat and packed with protein. You can make a huge batch for about $15, and have yummy leftovers for several days!
