Carol's Spicy Chipotle Chicken Chili


I realize this is not a food blog, but I have had several requests for my recipe for my chicken chili so I decided to put it here so that it would reach more people who might enjoy it.

Ingredient List:
3 cooked chicken breasts, chopped
3 15oz. cans Northern white beans
1 can mild Ro-tel
2 15oz. Cans chicken broth
3 chipotle peppers in adobo, chopped
Garlic powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to taste
1/2 small can chopped green chiles

Cooking Directions:
Place all ingredients in large pot and bring to gentle boil. Reduce heat to low or medium low and simmer at least 30 minutes. Serve with chopped cilantro, sour cream, grated sharp cheddar, chopped onions, or any garnish of your choice.

(This chili is fairly spicy. You could probably substitute regular diced tomatoes for the Ro-tel and cool it down some. A little less chipotle pepper would also bring less heat, but that is where the great flavor in this chili comes from.)
