Go Green, Go White Chicken Chili

Go Green, Go White Chicken Chili

1 1/2 pounds of ground chicken breast (you can also use one inch cubes of whole breast pieces)
2 links of andouille sausage cut into half moons
secret mix of chili spices :) (the secret is to get the spices from http://www.worldspice.com – cumin, chili powder, habanero…I can’t give away all my secrets!)
1 large poblano chile roasted, peeled and chopped
3 jars of beans (habichuela blanca, cannellini, navy)
2 jars of chopped fire roasted tomatoes with green chili
1 jar of salsa verde (or if you have time, make your own salsa verde)
1 dash of Michigan vodka (optional)
2 tomatillos

You can scale up or down depending on crowd – it’s not an exact science.

In large dutch oven or soup pot, saute chicken w/the spices until cooked through
Add sausage, stir
add salsa verde
add beans
add tomatoes
add poblano
add jalapeno
add dash of vodka

let cook over medium heat for an hour or so.  Alternatively, you can dump the contents of the pot in the crock pot and let it stew for a few hours.

right before serving, cut up tomatillos and mix into chili
