Simple, yet satisfying

This is just a simple, mild, kid-friendly recipe for white bean chili. It uses pantry ingredients, and it's meatless, because I like to try to reduce the amount of meat we eat every week. My entire family gobbled this right up. Add whatever toppings make you happy -- crushed tortilla chips, avocado chunks.....


2 cans Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 can corn, drained
1 4-ounce can chopped green chiles, NOT drained
1 medium onion, chopped
2 c. chicken broth
1/2 tsp. each salt, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 c. cream
1 c. shredded cheese

In large pot, mix beans, corn, chiles, onion, broth and seasonings. Bring to boil, then cover, reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes so flavors can combine. Stir in cream and cheese. Serves 4.
