Kalli thought this was a fantastic idea (even though she didn't want her picture taken). It's crazy that it was 66 degrees yesterday in the middle of December, but I'm not complaining. After lunch we went to the park - the kids had a blast.

White Bean Chicken Chili

This was DELISH! We all loved it. Parker loved it the most!

1 lb ground chicken (or turkey)
2 cans green chili
28 oz chicken broth
2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1-2 cans white beans (I used Northern Beans)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 onion
Shredded Monterey Jack
Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
Fresh Cilantro for garnish (optional)

Cook the onion and ground chicken until cooked thoroughly. Add the garlic and sautee about 1-2 mins. Add the spices and cook another 2-3 mins. Combine the broth, beans, sauteed chicken/onion and simmer for 10-15 mins. Add 1 tbsp of shredded Monterey Jack to each bowl and squeeze generous amounts of fresh lime juice on top.
