Back-To-School Recipe Pool Fridays

Don't adjust your computer screen ladies....yes, you are seeing things correctly. I have my blog all decked out for Halloween already. Needless to say, Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. So, that means that I love everything that comes with it. Halloween, witches, pumpkin pickin', Trick or Treaters, the cool crisp evenings, the beautiful color of the leaves, cozy jeans and sweaters and good ol' comfort food.

Speaking of have to go over and join Colleen at And Baby Makes Five. She is having a "Back-To-School Recipe Pool" every Friday.

Colleen and some other lovely ladies are sharing their favorite Fall recipes. So, I decided to join in all of the fun and share one of our "go to" meals for the Fall....White Chili with Chicken...YUMMO!!!!

1 medium onion, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped, optional
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon canola oil
4 cups chicken broth
2 cans (15-1/2 ounces each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 to 1-1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
2 cups cubed cooked chicken

Directions: In a large saucepan, cook the onion, jalapeno if desired and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in the broth, beans, parsley, lime juice and cumin; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into chili. Add chicken. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened

Your background is so cute!!

I LOVE fall too! My husband told me that I'm in a much better mood in the fall (hope that doesn't mean I'm overly crabby the rest of the year!).

Thanks for sharing the recipe. It sounds really yummy. I'm going to print it out and get it in my cookbook. :o)
