We signed up for a 1st time chili cook off to be held today at a rural bar and restaurant. It is to raise money for C-Snips, a low cost neutering service for mainly dogs. We found out later they would be having a White Chili and Red Chili catagory, so we got into both! It doubles the work, but doubles the odds we can place too. We know the Health inspector will be there, so we have to make sure to bring extra gloves, thermometers, and ice. I may have described my Wicked White Chili before, but for the ones who don't know what the hell I'm talking about-here goes!
I will use 4lbs of boneless,skinless chicken breasts,cubed and sauted, 2lbs of Italian mild sausage that has fresh basil and grated romano cheese right in it, tore up into pieces and browned. Base liquid is chicken broth, seasoned with cumin,Mexican oregano, chopped Jalapeno peppers, garlic, white pepper and celery seed. Chopped onions, bell peppers, canned corn, with white beans all go in it too. Our final, not-so-secret-anymore ingredient is a jar or two of Alfredo sauce. Doesn't take long to cook-just simmer for about an hour, adding the alfredo about 10 minutes before done. Can be topped with grated Parmesean&Romano and sliced black olives. Wish us luck, as we'll need it being the out of towners again!
