Danny's father's mother is Grandma Great to the kids. And she is a wonderful resource for yummy recipes. This is one of our favorites from her. It's even less expensive to make if you prepare your own beans. It freezes well too.
5 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
3 tbsp. onion powder
9 cans Northern beans (approx. 14 oz. cans)
1 1/2 c. chicken broth
3 4-oz. cans green chilies drained (I recommend buying whole and then chopping them. The pre-chopped tend to have hard pieces.)
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
16 oz. sour cream
2 lbs. monterey jack cheese-- grated
Combine everything except sour cream & monterey jack cheese. Bring to boil. Reduce to simmer, and simmer 30 minutes. Add sour cream. Add monterey jack cheese & serve.
If you're going to freeze it, don't add sour cream & monterey jack cheese. Add those later when serving. You could grate the cheese and freeze it in a separate container from the chili. Don't freeze the sour cream though. ick.
We like to eat it with Fritos. I think it kinda has a chicken enchilada taste to it. If you don't like beans (or just want to see them suffer), click here. hehe
