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
