White Chicken Chili

Not sure why I haven't posted this recipe before now, as it is a favorite...and so easy to make! Simple, quick and healthy (and tasty!) - how can you go wrong?

White Chicken Chili

1 rotisserie whole chicken from Costco or your local grocery store deli section
3 cans white beans- drained and rinsed
2 4 oz. cans diced green chiles
1 onion - chopped
2 Tbsp chopped garlic
2 16 oz containers mild fresh salsa (it's got to be fresh - not the jar stuff and don't drain it, use the juice too! - for those of you that are local, Tacoma Boys salsa is the best)
1 - 32oz carton chicken broth
1 small bunch of cilantro - chopped (optional)
chopped avocados, shredded cheese & sour cream, tortilla chips for garnish

Saute' your chopped onion & garlic in whatever fat you decide to use - olive oil, butter, etc. While that's cooking, start tearing the white & dark meat from the chicken. Don't be afraid to use the dark meat - it adds a lot of flavor to the soup. Add the torn chicken, broth, white beans, chili & fresh salsa to the crockpot. Mix well Simmer on low heat for three hours. Add the chopped cilantro. Continue to simmer while you prepare your selected garnish (at least 20 minutes). Serve with avocados, cheddar cheese and sour cream on top.
