    Anyone have a good recipe for white bean chile?
    My MIL's birthday Saturday. She can have green chiles but not Garlic-Oregano or Cumin.
    Any ideas on what other spices might work?

    White Chili Recipe

    1 lb large white beans, soaked overnight in water, drained
    6 cups chicken broth
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 medium onions, chopped (divided)
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    2 4-ounce cans chopped green chilies
    2 tsp powdered coriander (cumin substitute)
    1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    4 cups diced cooked chicken
    3 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
    1 jalapeno or serrano pepper, chopped (optional)

    1 Combine beans, chicken broth, garlic and half the onions in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until beans are very soft, 3 hours or more. Add additional water (or watered-down broth), if necessary.

    2 In a skillet, sauté remaining onions in oil until tender. Add chilies and seasonings and mix thoroughly. Add to bean mixture. Add chicken and continue to simmer 1 hour. Check seasoning, add jalapeno or serrano to level of desired hotness.

    3 Serve topped with grated cheese. Garnish with cilantro, chopped fresh tomato, salsa, chopped scallions, and/or guacamole. Serve with fresh warmed flour tortillas or tortilla chips.

    8-10 servings

    Thank you Calgon for the recipe.

    as for substitutes..
    try either Marjoram (it is milder) or Thyme or Basil.
    For Cumin:
    Try chili powder or Coriander
    about the only thing listed is onions or shallots.
