White Chili

Another great dish from a client! As with anything involving beans or other seeds, it is important to soak them at least overnight the day before. Even better to give chili beans a bit more time to “sprout” or germinate by starting in the morning covered with water, then drain and rinse, then let them sit damp (covered with a damp paper towel) overnight.

Ingredients:

3 cups white beans (soaked and drained)
3½ cups chicken broth (enough to cover to about 2 inches above the beans)

1 cup onion, chopped
salt, pepper, cumin, oregano, allspice to taste (any are optional)
Optional: 6 slices of un-sugared bacon or 2½ cups chicken, cubed

Place all ingredients in a crock pot and cook covered on low heat for 8 hours (or all day while you are at work)…
