Fall is officially in the air, so I'm cooking up the perfect fall dish - White Chicken Chili.  This hearty and comforting meal is perfect for any chilly evening at home.  It also makes a great leftover - whether you freeze it and serve it another week, or you reheat it the next night.  Therefore, I haven't condensed the recipe down for two.  You will get a full batch, which will give you at least four servings, and trust me, you'll want all four servings!

White Chicken-Corn Chili 
Total Time: 40 minutes
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

What you'll need
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper (1/2 chopped and 1/2 sliced, seeds removed)
1 4-ounce can chopped green chiles, drained
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
2 15-ounce cans large white beans (1 can undrained, 1 can drained and rinsed)
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack or White Cheddar cheese

Optional toppings
sour cream
tortilla strips 

1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.  Add onion; cook until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. 
2. Add garlic, chopped jalapeno, green chiles and cumin; cook for about 2 minutes. 
3. Stir in chicken broth, chicken and beans along with the liquid from one of the cans of beans; bring to a boil. 
4. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally until thickened, about 15 minutes. 
5. Using a potato masher, mash the chili until about half of the beans are broken up. 
6. Stir in corn, cilantro and 1/2 cup of cheese.
7. Serve chili and top with remaining cheese and sliced jalapenos.  Add optional toppings, if desired.  Enjoy!
