White Bean Chowder with Milk 2 teaspoons vegetable oil 1 cup chopped onion 2 teaspoons minced garlic 2 (15-ounce) cans white cannellini or Great Northern beans, drained 1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilies 1 cup frozen corn kernels 1/2 cup grated carrot 1/4 cup diced celery 1 cup low–sodium chicken broth 1 tablespoon ground cumin 2 teaspoons chili powder 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional) 2 cups fat-free or low-fat milk 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, divided 4 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro (optional) In a large saucepan, stir together oil, onion and garlic over medium heat until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add 1 can of beans and mash into onion mixture with a potato masher or a slotted spoon (mixture will be chunky). Stir in second can of beans, green chilies, corn, carrot, celery, chicken broth, cumin, chili powder and salt, if desired; bring mixture to a simmer. Blend cornstarch into milk and stir into chowder; bring slowly to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes, or until corn and celery are tender and mixture thickens. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese just until melted. Serve in individual bowls and top with fresh chopped cilantro, if desired.
