It means its time for some good old cozy comfort food. It rained most all day Saturday starting on Friday evening. When I woke up on Saturday, I knew immediately that I wanted to make chili. This recipe was a great hit especially with the yummy corn bread to go with it.

3 cups chicken, cooked (I cooked 7 breast halves -sprinkled in taco seasoning- in the crockpot until it shredded easy)
1 onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 cans green chilies, diced
1 pound dried navy beans, rinsed
8 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 T cumin
1 T chili powder
1/2 t fresh ground black pepper
In your trusty dutch oven saute the onions and garlic in some olive oil, until just softening. Add chilies with the broth, cumin, chili powder and pepper. Stir in beans. Cover and cook low and slow until the beans are getting soft (almost 2-3 hours). Next stir in chicken. Serve piping hot with salsa, sour cream and cheese.
