Pierre LaMontagne


1 medium onion, chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 (4oz) can chopped green chilies OR
4 oz fresh OR dried chilies
2 teaspoons dried oregano
3 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon ground cumin
4 (~15 oz) cans white beans, undrained
2 (~14 oz) cans chicken broth
2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 teaspoons salt or to taste
16 oz sour cream
16 oz salsa

If using dried or fresh chilies, the type you use is to your preference.
If using canned & chopped chilies, drain them.
If using fresh chilies, chop them.
If using dried chilies, reconstitute them; drain them; chop them.
In a large skillet, cook the onions & chilies (canned/fresh/dried) in the hot oil until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Add the cumin & oregano, then the flour to create a roux , cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
Add the beans, chicken broth, & salsa. Bring this to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the chicken and the salt; cook until fully heated. Mix in the cheese & sour cream; cook until the cheese has melted.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Alternatively, boil a whole chicken using its meat and 4 cups (or 32 ounces or 1 quart) of its broth instead of the chicken broth & cooked chicken called for in this recipe.
A good example to use for boiling a whole chicken can be found in the recipe titled "Salad, Jamie's Chicken" elsewhere in this cookbook.

Roux is a French term for a thickening agent. It's pronounced as R-OO rhyming with TOO.
