I love chili. In writing this post, I realized that I rarely order chili at restaurants. I'm not really sure why that is. Anyway, I do make it at home pretty often and this green chili is one of my favorites.
I've never tried making it with dried beans, but I bet it would work since the chili simmers for a couple of hours.
Canned tomatillos will do the trick.
Add as much cayenne as you can handle. I think I usually use between 1/8th and 1/4 tsp.
White Bean Chili Verde
1 TB olive oil
1 onion, diced
3 green onions, sliced
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 small cans of chopped chilies
2 cans Great Northern beans
4 tomatillos, chopped
2 cups chicken broth
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
some black pepper
Heat the olive oil and saute onions, garlic and red pepper for 2 minutes. Add everything else. Bring to a boil and then let it simmer for a couple of hours until it gets to your desired consistency.
Wasn't that easy? Maybe that's why I love making chili!
