White Chipotle Chicken Chili

This was another Pinterest find.  D and I were trying to decide what to have for dinner last night that wouldn't take long since we would be out all day.  This fit the bill.  In the time it took me to walk 2 dogs, he had it done.  It had a lot of flavor, and good thickness.  We each had 1.25 servings and added sour cream to the topping.  Would have again.

Serves: 8
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 20 min
Total: 35 min

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (used 1)
3 medium onions, chopped
4 large garlic cloves, minced (used 8)
2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 tablespoon chipotle chile powder or chili seasoning
4 teaspoons ground cumin
3 cans (19 ounces each) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed (used 3 15-oz cans)
3 cups lower-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup fat-free half-and-half (used regular)
1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese (2 ounces) (used regular)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1. In a large Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, 4 to 5 minutes.

2. Push the onions to one side of the pan, add the chicken and garlic, and sprinkle with the chipotle chile powder, cumin, and salt to taste. Cook, stirring, until most of the chicken is opaque on the outside, 5 to 6 minutes.

3. Stir in 3 cups of the beans and 2 cups of the broth. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. Partially cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 8 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the remaining beans and remaining 1 cup broth. Process to a smooth puree.

5. Stir the bean puree and half-and-half into the soup. Divide the soup among 4 bowls and serve hot sprinkled with cheese and cilantro.
