White Chicken Chili - with a hint of lime!

To me... 
there's nothing better than sitting on the couch
 to watch your favorite game - with a BIG bowl of chili.

For this "White Chicken Chili" you'll need:

1 rotisserie chicken (shredded)
1 jalapeno pepper
1 green pepper
1 onion
4 cloves of garlic
1 can of white beans
Shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
4 cups of chicken stock
2 limes
Sour cream
Lime flavored tortilla chips

First up - 
Finely chop the garlic, green pepper, jalapeno and onion.

Put them in a DEEP pot with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil.

After the veggies have cooked for 5-10 minutes,
add coriander, cumin and chili powder.
(Also add salt/pepper to taste.)

Stir for another 5 minutes.

Then, add 4 cups of chicken broth - along with the juice of one lime.
(Depending how much "lime" taste you want, feel free to juice two.)

Let this simmer for about 20 minutes.

Add your chicken - and ONE can of white beans.

Cook for another 20 minutes.

Now - it's time to dish it up!

Get out your lime tortilla chips.

Put some chili in your bowl.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.
Add a dollop of sour cream.
Put some chips on the side.
Squeeze HALF a wedge of lime on top.

Sooooo yummy in your tummy.
The perfect bowl of chili for a cold day - 
sitting in front of the TV!
