Friday Foods ~ White Chili

Hi Everyone!
Today we are making White Chili.

  • White Northern Beans, 15.5 oz. or larger to keep it around 2 lbs of beans (same amount for home dried beans)
  • 100% Natural Diced Tomatoes, 1 Can, 14.5 oz OR 1 Jar home canned diced tomatoes
  •  100% Natural Pureed Tomatoes, 1 Can, 14.5 oz OR 1 Jar home canned Pureed tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons of dried Onion Powder.
  • 2 Medium size diced Onions (yellow, white or sweet for less heat)
  • 1 packet of Chili mix (heat optional) or 1/2 Cup Home Made Chili Mix
  • 1 Pepper Ancho, Pablano, Anaheim, or Bell Pepper for less heat, seeded & diced. * wear gloves to cut up the hot peppers.
  • 5 Garlic Cloves minced or chopped.
Optional:   Beef - Ground, 90% lean meat / 10% fat, raw (hamburger), lean Chicken diced, ground Elk or diced Pork.

My White Chili starts with 2 lbs/2 bags of White Beans, Navy Beans or Great Northern Beans.

 I wash the beans and pick out any shells.
Then I strain the beans and put them in a large pot of  room temperature water to soak overnight; at least 9 hours.

In the morning I drain and rinse the beans again. (*I save the old water to use on my outdoor herbs)

Then place the beans in the large pot with at least 1 1/2 inches of water over the beans and bring to boil. Rapidly boil the beans for 5 minutes, then turn down the heat to med or a gentle boil. Boil for 2 hours. In the last hour, add the chili mix & onion powder. Stir really well. Then add the chopped tomatoes & pureed tomatoes. I then cook the meat (if Vegetarian, leave meat out) with a bit of olive oil, add the onion, 5 garlic cloves, chopped pepper and cook till brown. Add the this to the chili and continue cooking for 1 hour. It is good just with beans too!

Serve with Tortillas or Crackers.
