This recipe is for those cold, snowy nights of winter when you just want to warm your insides. Actually, this dish is also a great way to use up leftover turkey from the holidays (but hopefully you’ve already gotten ride of that a long time ago!).
2.5 cups of cooked chicken breast or turkey (skinless, boneless and cubed)
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cups chicken broth
2 cans of cannelloni beans (white kidney beans), undrained
1 can cream of chicken
2 oz (1/2 can) of chopped green chilies
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t ground cumin
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t cilantro
1/8 t ground red pepper
- Sauté the onion in olive oil for a few minutes or until they appear clear and somewhat golden.
- Stir in broth, chilies, spices, and meat. Simmer for 15 minutes.
- Stir in beans and simmer for 5 more minutes or until completely warmed.
- Serve with shredded cheddar or Monterrey jack cheese (optional).
