RECIPE: White Chicken Chili and Meal Plan Monday 11/25/13

This is going to be a crazy busy week.  Since the kids are out of school all week, I'm working nights with the exception of Thursday.  I'll be working all day Thursday.

Yesterday I made a White Chicken Chili using leftover chicken.  Here's what I did:

In a Dutch oven, over medium heat pour in...
1 tablespoon vegetable oil and then add
1/2 onion, finely diced
1 celery stalk, finely diced
1 green tomato, finely diced
1 jalapeno, seeds removed and super finely diced
2 garlic cloves,  minced
Stir well and saute for 8-10 minutes.

Add the following spices and warm through for 1 minute, stirring well...
2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon Mexican oregano, crushed

Next, add
1 can Great Northern beans, mashed
2 cans Great Northern beans
1 can filled with water
3 teaspoons chicken bouillon
2 cups shredded pre-cooked chicken

Simmer over low heat for 15-20 minutes.  Stirring occasionally to avoid burning.

Taste and see if it needs extra salt.

Enjoy with tortilla chips and diced avocado.

Here's what we're going to eat this week:

Monday:  BBQ Meatballs and Pineapple over rice with green beans

Tuesday:  Hot Wing Chicken Casserole with celery & carrot sticks

Wednesday: Scrambled Eggs, Biscuits, Gravy and Bacon

Thursday: Tacos and Rice and Beans

Friday:  Pizza and Salad

Saturday:  Tuna Sandwiches for lunch; Crock Pot meal for supper Chicken Teriyaki with rice, sesame roasted carrots and steamed broccoli

Sunday:  Special Assembly Day

Have a great week!
