White Chicken Chili with Aged Cheddar

Compliments of Tracey! I made some minor adjustments and really like this untraditional chili

2 teaspoon olive oil
2 onions, peeled and diced
2 tablespoon minced jalapeno chili
2 diced green chiles
1 yellow bell pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 can (15 oz) cream-style corn
2 cups milk
2 cans (15 oz) navy beans (or any white beans), rinsed and drained
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup chicken broth
Salt and pepper
1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded aged Cheddar Cheese (3 to 4 1/2 oz)

In a large pan, combine oil, onions, and peppers (yellow bell, jalapeno, and green). Stir often over high heat until onions are limp, 4 minutes. Add cumin, corn, broth, milk, and beans. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors, about 10 minutes. Stir in chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the aged cheddar and serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings
