How to make it

  • Soak the beans in water overnight, cook until tender, drain. Speed-soaking is an option - bring to a boil, remove from heat, cover, let stand one hour, then finish cooking - but I think this is not much better than canned beans.
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, just hot enough to cook the onion and bell pepper; stir to heat them evenly. Cook until tender. Set to the side.
  • In a saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil. Add milk, heat carefully to just short of boiling, remove from heat, set to the side.
  • In another saucepan (one large enough to also hold the milk/stock mixture later), melt the butter; heat gently until the water boils out (be gentle, butter scorches easily).
  • Reduce the heat to low, add the flour to the melted butter, stir until smooth; add the hot milk/stock, whisk until smooth.
  • Add the grated cheese and the cream cheese, whisk until smooth.
  • Whisk in the cumin and ginger. Add salt and pepper to taste. For a fiery chili, add 2 or three teaspoons of ground red pepper, more if you know what you are doing; omit for a mild chili.
  • In a crockpot, layer in about a cup of beans, about half cup of onion-bell pepper mixture, about a quarter of the white corn, about a quarter of the chicken with enough cheese sauce, to cover; repeat layers, ending with cheese sauce to cover.
  • Ready to eat right away, or let stand in a crockpot on low - the longer it stands, the better it gets.

    this was amazing..only thing missing was..in the ingredients you listed corn, drained...well in the instructions you never included the corn...being someone who cooks a lot..i just included the corn with the onions and peppers...BUT some people follow recipes to the T..so you might want to include this somewhere!! OUTSTANDING recipe though!! cant wait to make it again!!
