Heat the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic powder. Cook and stir until the onion is tender.
Stir the flour into the skillet. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Gradually stir in the broth. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens.
Stir the chicken, beans, chiles, cumin and hot pepper sauce in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Line each of 6 serving bowls with the tortillas. Divide the chili among the bowls. Serve topped with cheese and cilantro, if desired.
Spicy Verde Chicken & Bean Chili
I've repeatedly tried white chili-type recipes with no success. Decided to try this one, expecting the same, bland result, but boy, was I wrong! I used jalapeno salsa instead of hot sauce, and I LOVE this, as did my husband. Many, many thanks for a delicious, flavorful meal.
I actually entered this recipe in a soup contest. Did not win, however out of 38 teams it was 5 (not bad) I am entering this in a Chili contest this week at work, will let you know how it turns out.
