White Chili and ~Tailgating Time~

Welcome back! This is the third week of Tailgating Time, and I want to thank everyone who joined us last week! The winner of last weeks CSN giveaway will be announced at Seaside Simplicity . So are we ready for some great food? Hope you all can join in for....

Tailgating Time!

Tailgating Time will be posted every Sunday at noon and open all week for you to add your football favorites. We'll play each and every week until Superbowl Sunday. I can't wait to see what you'll be bringing!
Here is what I'm bringing White Chili.

I wanted to bring back an old recipe from last year and re-post it for the football season. I should of posted this yesterday like Martha did hers, she is so smart (that's why she's the leader :D). It makes sense not to have it in the same post as Tailgating Time, maybe next week or not.

Look at all the bubbly goodness just cooking away there...

I usually use white beans in the white chili, but I can't believe this...I didn't have any in the pantry. So I used pinto beans...they are one of my favorite beans, I like the nutty flavor it brings to the dish!
White Chili
1lb ground pork
2 cups diced chicken
6 cups chicken broth (you can add less depends on how brothy you like it)
1 large 19.5 oz can Great Northern, Navy or any white beans ( or 2 smaller ones, depends how many beans you like)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 med onion chopped
2 stalks of celery (diced)
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp coriander
2 tsp oregano (I used marjoram b/c I still have a lot of that pound I bought left)
1 tsp tarragon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp New Mexico Green Chili (you can use cayenne or any chili powder that you like)
3 Tbl salsa verde (or you can use 1 4oz can of diced green chilies)
Grated Monterey Jack Cheese or any Mexican cheese - optional
sour cream - optional

Saute onions, celery, in a little oil in a large pot until tender. Brown the pork, and add dry spices. Add rinsed beans, salsa verde, broth and chicken to the browned ground pork, celery and onions and mix well. Simmer for 1 hour. Serve topped with grated Mexican cheese, and sour cream. Serves 8

  1. SURPRISE - You were are winner for the CSN giveaway!!! :-)

    I think it's fine to post your recipe right on the Tailgating Time post and it sure looks delicious! Be sure to link it up even though it's on your post so it will be on all our blogs.

    Goooooo Dolphins!

  2. Nice post, Lyndz! If not mistaken, you made this quite a long time ago.... last year! And it sounds as awesome. I love it too. Thanks for sharing & enjoy your day. Btw, I'm in the tailgating Time too! hehe... Have fun.
    Cheers, Kristy

  3. I love that it's chili time again! The cooler weather (here anyway, lol) is such a relief and it's time for some cozy soups and comforting chili. This sounds great, different than the usual standard chili but just as yummy! I'm bringing along some delicious Italian sandwiches for the football game. :o) Have a great day!

  4. Thanks Martha! I have been trying to win so many of the CSN giveaways so I can finally replace my broken rice cooker! Yay!

  5. Kristy thanks for joining us again this week! I always love your recipes. Crispy lemon fried chicken sounds perfect for tailgating. Yes, I mentioned that I brought this one back from about a year ago when I was starting out and you and a couple others were my readers. Haha! Kristy you can make this with ground chicken instead of the pork! Cheers!

  6. Thanks for bringing something to the Tailgate party Brenda! It's not really cooler here, but if we waited for that we might not get a chance to make these warming dishes. My daughter really likes the white chili, and requests it often. I love those sandwiches you brought!

  7. I've never been fond of white chili (just like my color too much I guess :P), but think I'll try this with the red beans! Looks awesome.

  8. Thanks Tamy ~ I guess mine isn't all that white, just it doesn't use red sauce or red meat. It does have green chilies and celery, I like the red beans better in it for flavor too. You can always toss some diced tomatoes on top or cilantro for color!
