Ward Harvest Party & Chili Cook-Off

Last Saturday was our Ward Harvest party and they had a Chili Cook-Off! Of course we entered and were one of 6 to be judged. We entered our recipe for the delicious White Chicken Chili that my family makes. After the judging we were tied for first place with another family's chili but after a final test we were the WINNERS!!!

Matt had to go up and tell about our chili and he tried to make a funny joke saying that we just dumped a few cans of chili from the store into a pot and brought it... no one really laughed but I thought it was funny. Here are some pics of us and our trophy!

Also, here is the recipe for the White Chicken Chili so you can make it your chili of choice :)


One pound boneless, skinless chicken breast cubed (Or one rotisserie chicken torn into small pieces)

½ of a medium onion, finely chopped

1 ½ tsp garlic powder

1 Tbs vegetable oil

2 – 15.5 oz cans of Great Northern beans, drained

1 – 14 oz can chicken broth

1 – 7 oz can green chilies chopped

1 tsp salt 1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp dried oregano ½ tsp pepper

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

1 C sour cream ½ C whipping cream


In a large pot sauté chicken, onion and garlic powder in vegetable oil, cook until chicken is no longer pink (or if using rotisserie chicken, cook until chicken is heated all the way through). Add beans broth, chilies and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for approx. 30 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in sour cream and whipping cream. Serve immediately. Top with cheese, green onions, and sour cream.
