{White Chicken Chili}

This is one of our favorite family recipes, it has actually expanded to becoming one of our favorite meals when we get together with our entire family, which is a huge group. This recipe works really well when doubled or even tripled. Its hearty and delicious!

2 tsp olive oil
4 chicken breasts, cubed
1 can navy beans
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can white beans
2 cans hominy
2 cans white corn
1 cup diced onion
2 cans chicken broth
4 cloves garlic minced
2 cans diced green chilies
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp oragano
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup sour cream
16 oz monetary jack cheese
1/4 cup fresh cilantro

Saute the onion and garlic in a large pot over medium heat. Add the green chilies and spices along with the chicken cubes. Let cook for about 4-5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and all the cans. Simmer on low till hot. Stir in the sour cream and half of the cheese until melted. Simmer about 15 minutes. You can either add all the cilantro to the pot (which I do) or in each of the serving bowls. Serve with the rest of the cheese, sour cream, fresh salsa and chips
