Maybe i have too much imagination...

...but don't tell me that this eggplant with arms doesn't have a human look!

I wanted to prepare a chili white variant, with chicken and white beans. Of course I added also my white eggplants, tasty and delicate.

I know, I should have used a white (or pale yellow) chili too, like the Banana Sweet, but I had harvested some unripe Jalapeno Mitla, and they added a touch of green (and of spiciness) to the chili.

Serves two:
400g chicken breast
250g white giant beans
1 clove garlic
1 potato, peeled
100g white eggplant
3 green jalapenos
1 tbsp flour
1 tsp cumin seeds

Cut the potato and the eggplants into slices, then fry them in a large skillet with oil and minced garlic.
Add the chicken cut into chunks, the thinly sliced chilies and cook for about ten minutes.
Sprinkle with the flour and mix well.
Add cumin seeds and half glass of water and cook another few minutes.

I love white chicken chili--so light and perfect and the green peppers break up all the white. Thanks for sending it to Souper Sundays. ;-)

Love white chili! White eggplant is such a great addition, even if it does look like it has arms. : D

Thank you, Graziana, for your wonderful MLLA recipe!
