White Chili

Not to compete... but I also have a white chili recipe I've been meaning to post. So to make it not a competition I would like to say that i don't know if its soul warming or will fill you with love but it is SUPER easy. And all canned, which is cheating, and that also cuts down my competitive edge.
Here goes

2 cans white beans (northern)
2 cans chicken (costco is usually cheapest)
1-7 oz can diced green chiles
(if you want to give it extra kick add a 4 oz can of diced jalepenos)
16 oz tub of sour cream
4 tsp minced garlic (it comes in a jar at the store... i saw it once in the produce section, but i'm not sure where it usually is carried)
2 TBSP dried minced onion
2 tsp cumin
3 tsp oregano
1 cup of shredded cheese (i use fiesta blend or mexican or something)
1 can diced tomatoes i do drain this but you don't have to (if you want to use mexican stewed that gives more kick too)
i think that's all

dump it all in a crock pot (don't drain) 2 hours on high.
the end. YUM. :)


I have always used Ragu spaghetti sauce. I never thought that I could make a marinara sauce that would taste as good as the store bought. I also disliked homemade sauce that was too watery/runny. One day I went down to the basement to get a jar of spaghetti sauce and we were out! *gasp! I wasn't sure what to do. But I did have a can of crushed tomatoes... So I started an adventure of making my own recipe. And guess what- it is the BEST spaghetti sauce that I have ever had... if i do say so myself. :)

What you need:
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
3 carrots (cubed)
3 sticks of celery (chopped)
1 onion (finely chopped)
3-4 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 red pepper (cubed)
a hand full of basil leaves (minced)
oregano 2 teaspoons
garlic powder
sausage or ground beef/turkey
(i use chicken sausage)

Start by sauteing onion, garlic, carrots, celery, and bell pepper. In a separate sauce pan add crushed tomatoes, and when the veggies are finished sauteing add to sauce pan. Add seasonings. Saute the meat of your choice and let it rest for a few minutes. Add to sauce.

Add to noodles, and top with Parmesan cheese and enjoy!

White Chili

I love white chili, it is creamy and delicious. It fills your soul with happiness and your family's tummies are filled with love.

What you need:

4 cans of White Beans
3-4 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 red bell pepper (cubed)
3 sticks of celery (chopped)
3 carrots (cubed)
1 can of corn
1 onion
1/4 cups of sour cream
1 cup of cooked chicken
chicken bullion
ground pepper
garlic powder

Start out by sauteing the onion, garlic, celery, and carrots. On a separate burner on a medium heat add the beans and when the other veggies are finished sauteing add to the pot. Add seasoning and let it simmer for 30 min or until beans are soft. Add chicken, corn, and sour cream toward the end so you don't over cook them. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or cheese.



This looks like a great guacamole recipe. I don't want to lose the link, so I am posting it here. Haven't tried it yet.
