About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Chicken and Corn Chili

   This is a delicious and low-cal chili that we really enjoy at our house.  It's like a nice, thick soup with a tiny bit of a kick!  I made some last night for dinner and we finished it up for lunch today.:)  Yummy with hot cornbread or rolls...

Chicken and Corn Chili

1 large onion, chopped
1 rotisserie chicken, cut into bite size pieces or shredded
2 cups chicken broth
1 3/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 can diced tomatoes with jalapenos, drained
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
2 cans Great Northern beans or cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
2 TB stone ground cornmeal

Combine onion, chicken broth, cumin and cayenne pepper and cook until onion is softened.  Add remaining ingredients (except cornmeal) and cook over medium heat.  Gently mash some of the beans against the side of the pot to thicken chili.  Stir in the cornmeal.  Simmer for about 15 minutes so it's gets nice and warm and then enjoy!  Easy and soooo yummy!
