- 1 lb. dry white beans shopping list
- 2 tablespoons olive oil shopping list
- 1 large white onion, diced shopping list
- 2 yellow bell peppers, chopped shopping list
- 1 l.b frozen white corn (or one 15-oz. can, drained) shopping list
- 1 cup chicken stock shopping list
- 2 cups whole milk shopping list
- 1/4 lb. (one stick) butter shopping list
- 5 tablespoons flour shopping list
- 1 or 2 tablespoons ground cumin shopping list
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger shopping list
- salt and pepper shopping list
- 8 oz. sharp, white cheddar cheese, grated (the sharper the better) shopping list
- 8 oz. cream cheese, cut into cubes to help it melt. shopping list
- (optional) ground red pepper shopping list
- 2 chicken breasts, cooked, diced shopping list
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.
