In A Pinch, Make This Dish!

I had it all planned out. I was going to make chili dogs for dinner. It was easy, the kids would be happy, and because it's quick, the hubby would be happy. So, imagine my annoyance, when I realized I didn't have the chili. I was so sure I had it... oh well. Now what? Well, I had a lot of canned beans, why not make my own?

I searched the internet for a meatless chili that wouldn't take too long to make. Most of the recipes, I was missing an ingredient or two. So, I just had to wing it and this is what I came up with...

Quick Meatless White Chili
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 (15-oz) cans Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15-oz)can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 C beef broth (I used Better Than Bouillon)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 C chopped cilantro
  • 1 (4-oz) can diced green chilies, drained
  • 1 (14-oz) can white sweet corn, drained
Coat a large pot with nonstick cooking spray, then saute the onion and garlic over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, until tender. Stir frequently so vegetables don’t stick. Add everything to the pot: the beans, beef broth, chili powder, cumin, oregano, green chilies, and corn. Stir to combine. Remove 1 1/2 C. and blend in a blender or food processor until smooth. Return to pot and add cilantro. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for 20 minutes. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream.
