Delicious Recipe: Kate's Double Award Winning Chicken Chili

Yum yum yum yum yum!!

This Chicken Chili is so good, it might as well be chocolate. Seriously, this is a recipe you don't want to ignore. Put it on your menu and scribble the ingredients on your grocery lists.

Last February, I won the coveted St. Andrew Lutheran Church Chili Cook-off Award. That same week, my mom won an award for it at her office! Thus, you have...

Kate's Double Award Winning Chicken Chili

1 Large Garlic Clove
1 T oil
2 12-oz cans of great northern beans
1 4 oz. can of diced green chilis
1 16-oz jar mild to medium salsa
1-2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 C chicken broth
1 t cumin
1 T chili powder
2 C grated cheddar cheese
sour cream to top and corn chips to munch on the side

Cut chicken into bite sized cubes, then cook in fry pan till just done.

Puree salsa. (A hand blender works great!)

In large saucepan, add all ingredients except cheese and simmer gently for 1 hour, stirring often.

10-15 min. before serving, add the cheese, again stirring often. (If you add the cheese too soon, it will burn.)

Sorry, but there is no photo of the finished product! We were so excited to eat that I didn't get a chance to snap a photo before it was...
