My husband is gone this weekend, which means...I didn't shower till 1:00, I was in my robe most of the day, and I had a Gilmore Girls marathon. It also meant I wanted something low-key for dinner. White chicken chili is so easy and yummy!
We also just bought a Canon Rebel XSi (our Christmas gift to each other), so warning...this entry's going to be a little photo-heavy! Full directions are at the end.
Heat one teaspoon of vegetable oil in a stockpot and add the onions.
Cook until tender. Add in one 4 ounce can each of diced jalapenos, chiles, the garlic, 2 teaspoons of cumin,
1 teaspoon of oregano,
and 1 teaspoon of cayenne, IF YOU DARE! Actually, I don't think it needs it. After you add the other ingredients, taste to see if it's hot enough for your taste. A full teaspoon of cayenne would make it FAR too hot for me!
Cook the ingredients until tender, about 3 minutes.
Then, add in 2 cans of chicken broth
and 3 cans of white beans.
Let the whole thing simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, grate 1 cup of pepper jack cheese.
Remove from heat and add the cup of cheese, stirring slowly until melted. Enjoy!

By lazy I mean BUSY. I work long hours so cooking during the week is not an option. Luckily, my husband is completely cool with this and sustains himself on yogurt, protein shakes, and peanut butter sandwiches during the week. I love to cook on weekends. Most dishes are simple, but I LOVE trying new recipes!
