We are finally going to get some cool weather this weekend. I am so excited! We sure do need a break from this South Georgia heat. I am so sick of it. My mood seems to change with the weather. According to the weather report I should be in a great mood this weekend. I love to cook and eat soups and stews but I don’t like to cook them when it is so hot outside. I have been super stoked about fall. My plan for the weekend is to relax and cook. I thought it would be a perfect weekend for White Chili and Beach Bread. Both of these recipes are “Get in my Belly Good”! I hope you and your family will enjoy it. This recipe can also be done in your crock pot.
White Chicken Chili
5 chicken breasts
1 large onion, chopped
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of cumin

1 can of rotel tomatoes
Cup of diced fresh tomatoes

1 can white kidney beans

Cut chicken breast in bite sized pieces and sprinkle with cumin, chili powder and garlic powder.
Heat oil over medium-high heat in a Dutch oven; add onions and chicken and sauté until chicken is cooked. Add ranch packet, green chilies, Rotel tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, beans, salt and pepper to taste and chicken broth. Lower the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for approximately 1 1/2 hours. Cut cream cheese into little chunks. Slowly add cream cheese to soup stirring constantly.
