This recipe is right on the can of Bush's Great Northern Beans! Why do I post it then? So you can take a looksee before you go out and buy a can...and because I've tweaked it ever so slightly! It really is very tasty, and our kids love it! It's embarrassingly easy since you basically just dump, heat, and eat. A fine friend for busy moms!
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 TBSP olive oil
1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies, do not drain
2 TBSP all-purpose flour
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 (15.8 oz.) cans northern beans, drained & rinsed
1 (14-1/2 oz.) can chicken broth
1-1/2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
Shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, optional, especially for my LactIntol husb!
Sour cream, optional
In large skillet, cook onion in oil for 4 minutes or until transparent. Add chilies, flour and cumin; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add beans and chicken both; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened. Add chicken; cook until hot. Garnish with cheese, sour cream and salsa, if desired.
LACTOSE FREE: Do not top with sour cream or shredded cheese...OR live it up and take a lactase supplement if they work for you!
