1 tbsp neutral oil and two 15-ounce cans white beans or 3/4 pound dry great northern beans
1 pound cubed skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 yellow onion, peeled and diced
3 husked, cleaned, and finely diced tomatillos.
1 jalapeo, trimmed and minced
6 garlic cloves, peeled and minced.
1 tablespoon of butter.
2.5 teaspoons -Sweet Chilifire Spice Blend
hot green chiles, diced in two 4-ounce cans.
5 cups of chicken stock or water.
1/3 cup of heavy cream.
pepper and salt.
As a serving:
cut up avocado
Leafy cilantro shredded cheese
Put dry beans in a big pot, then add water to cover them. Soak overnight OR heat in a pan until boiling.Simmer for one hour on low heat, after which you reduce the heat. Drain and set aside.Return the pot to the stovetop after cleaning it.
After thoroughly patting the chicken dry, season it with salt and pepper. In the pot, heat 1 tablespoon of neutral oil over medium-high heat. The chicken should be added in an even layer, and it should be cooked for 5 minutes on each side, or until it is mostly done and starting to brown. Transfer it to a bowl after being removed from the pot.
Cook for 5 minutes after adding the onion, tomatillos, and jalapenos to the pot. Cook the garlic for a minute after adding it. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add the aromatics to the melted butter. Add the spice mixture once it begins to bubble. Cook until fragrant, about 45 seconds.
Add the canned diced green chiles and chicken back to the pot. Add the soaked beans and then pour in the water or stock. Make sure there is just enough liquid in the pot to cover everything; if necessary, add a little more water. Add salt and pepper to taste.
After bringing it to a boil, turn down the heat to a simmer. For 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until thickened and the beans are very tender, simmer covered.
To thicken the chilli, mash a few of the beans against the pot's side with a spoon. Taste it and adjust the seasoning to your liking. Spend an additional 10 minutes cooking after adding the heavy cream. Cut the heat off.
Pour the chilli into bowls and top with your preferred garnishes. Enjoy!
