    mary winecoff's Note:

    This recipe is from the December 2008 issue of Food and Wine. It uses boneless chicken thighs. This is a hearty, jalapeno-spiked soup by Melissa Rubel. This can be made 2 days ahead and reheated before serving.

    1. 1
      Season the chicken with salt and pepper. In a large cast-iron casserole, heat the oil until shimmering. Add half of the chicken at a time and cook over moderately high heat until lightly browned all over, about 8 minutes per batch. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a plate.
    2. 2
      Add the onion to the casserole and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and jalapeno and cook until fragrant. Add the flour, chile powder, cumin, oregano and cayenne and cook, stirring constantly until fragrant.
    3. 3
      Add the stock, navy beans and chicken and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat until the chicken is very tender, 30 minutes.
    4. 4
      Uncover and simmer the soup over moderate heat until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper and serve with any of the extras that you like.

      I liked this soup so much more than I thought I was going to (isn't that random?). I followed the recipe (for the most part) with some additions from the refrigerator as soup in my house means "empty out the fridge". I used left-over Cornish Game Hen instead of chicken thighs, and added a leek and a tomato. I cut back on the cayenne, too, as it was plenty spicy for me with the jalapeno. The tortilla chips really compliment this soup. I sprinkled a Mexican blend of cheese on my bowl as I didn't have any Monterey Jack. Really good soup, uses common ingredients that are easy to find (even in Western Nebraska), and a great way to warm up when it is a little chilly outside! Made for Photo Tag.
