Default Recipe question..regarding beans

I am new to SB and I saw a recipe posted on the Phase 1 entree board for white chili. This is my husbands absolute favorite food that I make and we can't believe that is is Phase 1 friendly! My question is, can you use great northern beans from a jar or do they have to be dried? And second, is salsa a Phase 1 approved food?

Thanks for the help!

I can't answer your first question, but salsa is approved for Phase I as long as there's no added sugar in it! HTH

Greenbay, sorry we missed your questions...

Salsa is okay...what you need to look for is to avoid any added sugars . I use Tostito brand - it has 2 natural occurring grams of sugar.

I dont have the patience to soak beans.. I used canned all the time.. I just rinse them very good before I use them!So yes, just rinse them !

I have that recipe, I think. I haven't made it yet, but it looks great.

Quote:
Southwest White Chicken Chili
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon cilantro leaves
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium-sized boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes*
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 can (or 2 cups) chicken broth
1 can (4.5 ounces) chopped green chilies
1 can (15 ounces) white kidney beans (Cannellini) drained and rinsed
Shredded Monterey Jack cheese and sliced green onions for garnish (optional)
Combine garlic powder, cumin, oregano, cilantro, and red pepper in a small dish and stir until well blended. Set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken cubes and stir-fry from 5 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Add onions and continue cooking for a few minutes, until onion is translucent. Stir in chicken broth, chilies, and spices. Simmer over low heat 15 minutes. Stir in beans and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. If soup is too thick, add 1/2 cup to 1 cup water to desired consistency. Pour into serving bowls and top with cheese and sliced green onions.
Enjoy!
