Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
1/3 cup diced celery
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 cup diced cooked ham
3 1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
5 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk

Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.
Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately

Here's my famous white chicken chili - you can make it with black beans, too.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 T olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp chili powder (or to taste)
1 can chicken broth
1 can Rotel original OR 1 cup favorite salsa
16 oz Great Northern beans
3 T ground cumin (or to taste)

Cut chicken into 1" cubes and saute in a medium pot with oil, garlic, paprika, curry, and chili powder. When chicken is mostly cooked, add half can of chicken broth and continue to poach chicken. Once broth and chicken mixture is simmering well, add the Rotel, the beans, and HALF of the cumin. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer, stirring often, until chili begins to thicken. Add additional cumin (or to taste). Add more chicken broth, as desired, to thin. Simmer another 10 minutes. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips. Serves 4.
just got finished making this one and it is so yummy!!! I wanted to eat it all right then and there but I need to wait until DH gets home or there won't be any left for him! Thanks for the recipe!
