Yeap, more crock pot, just like I promised. Yesterday, while I was at the store going crazy on baking supplies, I also picked up the ingredients for white chicken chili. I am going to a Girl’s Night Out date tonight in downtown Washington, D.C., so I won’t have time to cook when I rush home from work, shower, change and head to the Metro station. Instead, I wanted something I could cook all day, scarf down when I come home, and that would still be nice and warm for the Ryan when he gets home…you know, whenever that happens to be.
So what better appliance to use than the crock pot? Since I knew I was going to be out today, I went ahead yesterday and prepped everything so it would be ready to just toss into the pot on my way out the door before work. I’m not a morning person, so the less I have to do, the better. It leaves me more time to sleep. 🙂
In case you’re wondering, the chick date is to a drag show, complete with champagne and dessert in a historic mansion situated on notorious Dupont Circle. It’s a wandering soiree, so each different room has a different theme, and the whole mansion apparently has 64 secret doors leading to other parts of the house. We can enjoy touring the house, which is also a museum and hotel, drinks in hand, before heading to the show to stuff dollar bills down the shirts of our fabulous dragsters! I am looking quite forward to this, as my chick friends are all buckets of fun before booze comes into play. 😀 And why not have a girl’s night out on the town, even if it does mean getting home after 11 and waking up at 5? Sleep is for the weak!
But, I digress. The ingredient list on this one is quite simple, and thankfully so. It was easy to throw everything together in a pinch and keep it overnight so could just dump it all in this morning. So without further adoo, white chicken chili:
The recipe calls for a can of diced tomatoes and a can of diced chiles, so I just decided to be lazy and use Ro*Tel diced tomatoes and jalapenos, as well as an additional small can of green chiles. 32 oz box of chicken broth, two 15 oz cans of white beans, drained and rinsed, a white onion, diced, 1/2 cup sour cream, a bag of frozen corn (but since corn is still in season, I bought fresh), a packet ofMcCormick White Chicken Chili mix, and, of course, chicken.
I drained and rinsed the beans, chopped the onion, and removed the corn kernels from the cob. I then put them all into plastic containers and stuck them in the fridge.
I also cubed the chicken and stuck it in a double-layered ziploc bag and stuck it in the fridge too.
The rest, I just set up and had sitting next to the crock pot for first thing in the morning.
Before I ran out the door, I went ahead and popped everything in and gave it a good stir.
Put it on low, ran out the door, hasta la byebye, dinner.
When I came home, as you can see, it looked pretty much the same. Only it smelled delicious!!
Not to be rude, but I gotta run!! Enjoy!
