Beef tongue, round two! Remember a few months ago when Sassy made Beef Tongue Tacos for her friends? She could not stop raving about how good the beef tongue was so of course I had to try it. Lucky for me I have a group of brave friends that trust in my cooking abilities (I’m not sure why) that were willing to dive into the world of offal.
No, I didn’t say awful I said offal. Offal is a word that refers to the internal organs of slaughtered animals. Stop freaking out. The US is basically the only country that runs in the other direction of these nutritional powerhouses. Everywhere else in the world likes to get down with their own version of organ meats, think- foi gras, pâté, sweetbreads, tripe, haggis, chopped liver, menudo, and intestine casing for sausage.

I promised you a follow up to my Perfect Tailgating Chili with a different twist so here it is… a White Chicken Chili recipe! I have a friend who doesn’t like regular chili (weirdo) but loves chicken so I made a twist on the original to try to sucker him into liking chili with this recipe. When I was in college I used to frequently visit a restaurant that had the most delicious and thick White Chicken Chili so I wanted to create something similar. In order to re-create the consistency without flour I used potato starch to thicken. If you aren’t into thick soups you can always omit the potato starch for a delicious warm you up on a cold winter day bowl of deliciousness.
In order to truly get a bang for your nutrition buck with this recipe I recommend you roast the chicken yourself ahead of time. This will give you the quality and nutrient density of a free-range chicken and the moisture and flavor of a fresh roasted chicken. Twice as healthy, twice as delicious as store bought (and not so healthy) boneless skinless chicken breast #winning.
