Winter Recipes That Won't Break the Belt!

With the cold weather approaching, we all crave comfort foods. A lot of the soups we love can be full of heavy creams, cheese, and heavy carbs. I love comfort foods during a snowy day also, but I do not want to have to work off a winter coat a.k.a extra pounds for summer. Here is a great White Chicken Chili recipe that won't pack on extra calories and is filling.

White Chicken Chili


  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 breasts)

  • 4 cups low sodium chicken stock

  • 2 (15-ounce) cans reduced sodium white beans rinsed and drained

  • 2 (4.5-ounce) cans diced green chiles

  • 3 cloves minced garlic

  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • Fresh lime wedges

  • For toppings: Diced Jalapeno, diced avocado, non-fat sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, shredded cheese, crushed whole wheat tortilla chips

1. Place all ingredients into a crock pot and cook on low (4-6 hours) and high (2-3 hours) the chicken should shred apart when done. Top with squeezed lime and toppings. Enjoy!
