To Prepare
  1. Add 2 T. Olive oil to pot over medium to high heat.
  2. Add in cubed chicken, sprinkle generously with cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
  3. Cook chicken until you no longer see any pink. (The chicken will continue to cook in the chili)
  4. Remove the chicken and place on the side.
  5. Add 2 T. butter in the same pot.
  6. Cook onion and 1/4 tsp. salt for a few minutes until translucent.
  7. Add minced garlic.
  8. Cook 1-2 more minutes.
  9. Add cumin, paprika, chili powder and oregano, cook 1 minute.
  10. Add corn, green chilies, great northern beans and all but 1/2 cup of your Cannellini beans.
  11. We will use them, so put them aside for later!
  12. Pour in 4 cups of Chicken broth.
  13. Simmer for a half hour.
  14. Do not bring the pot to a boil, you don’t want to make the chicken tough.
  15. At this point taste the chili and season to taste.
  16. Take the 1/2 cup of reserved beans and remove a ladle of broth from your chili and blend so that you have a paste.
  17. This is how you are going to thicken the chili.
  18. While the chili is simmering, add the bean paste slowly into the pot until you reach the desired thickness.
Notes
  1. This would be a great option for vegetarians as well. Instead of chicken stock add vegetable stock and skip the chicken! Garnish with whatever your favorites are. Enjoy!
