For YEARS, I've had this THING that I'll say whenever cooking with beans: "What goes with beans? MILK MILK". Typically, this gets met with a blank stare or confused side-eye, since NOBODY ever seemed to have gotten the reference. Given my tendency to frequently reference really obscure things, this is a pretty common occurrence.
Luckily, I FINALLY found the commercial, and it's 11 years old! Also, I had no idea that the milk carton was Joe Mayo from Seinfeld!
ANYWAY, back to the beans. The BF LOVES Great Northern beans, which I've probably mentioned before. I've been really craving some GOOD white chili lately, but not my usual leftover Thanksgiving turkey chili. Since college football hasn't officially started yet, I haven't made my usual chili recipes, but hopefully the weather will cool down soon and I can!
Since I wanted white chili, I decided to make this smoky chicken chili. The smoked paprika and chipotle powder REALLY make the flavor deep and rich. I used a rotisserie chicken as a shortcut. Since the beans, corn, chilies and tomatoes are all canned, this chili is quick and easy to prepare. It's so hearty and flavorful, that the only side dish you will need is a slice of homemade cornbread!
