White Chicken Chili With Tomato Salsa

8 servings/serving size: 1 cup

Leftover of rotisserie chicken and canned chicken broth speed up this amazing chili. Serve it with a dollop of salsa and sprinkle of shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese. The salsa is great with chicken or fish, too.

1 onion chopped

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 (15 ounce) cans Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained (divided use)

4 cups fat-free low sodium chicken broth (divided use)

1 teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon dried oregano leaves

1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilies, drained

1 cup corn

1 ½ cups cooked , chopped, skinless chicken breast

1 ½ cups chopped tomatoes

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

½ teaspoon minced garlic

¼ cup chopped red onion

In a large nonstick saucepot, sauté the onion and garlic over medium heat for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring constantly.

In a blender or food processor, blend 1 can of beans and 1 cup broth until smooth. Add to the saucepot, then stir in the other can of beans, 3 cups broth, chili powder, cumin, oregano, chilies, corn and chicken. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, cilantro, garlic and red onion to make the salsa topping. Top individual servings with 2 tablespoons salsa.

Refrigerate remaining salsa for another use.
