CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Art of Food, an annual exhibition of work by area top chefs and artists, opens Friday at The Carnegie, 1028 Scott Blvd., Covington.

Chef Renee Schuler of Eat Well Celebrations and Feasts will be on Tuesday's FOX19 Morning News to show us how to make white chicken chili. Here's the recipe:

White Chicken Chili

1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 onion, chopped
1 stick butter
¼ cup flour, all purpose
1 cup chicken broth or stock
1 cup half and half
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
2 4-ounce cans green chilies, chopped
24 ounces diced or pulled cooked chicken (about 3 cups)
½ cup sour cream
Yield: serves 4-6

1. In heavy bottomed soup pot sauté onions in butter over medium heat.
2. Once soft reduce heat to low and sprinkle flour over sautéed onions, stir to combine.
3. Cook flour in onions, stirring constantly, for about three minutes.
4. Remove pot from heat, gradually add chicken broth and half & half whisking constantly.
5. Bring mixture to a simmer, let cook for seven minutes while stirring occasionally.
6. Stir in chili powder, cumin, and season with salt and pepper, (if using canned broth, be sparse with salt until closer to the end of cooking time)
7. Add beans, chilies, and chicken. Stir together carefully so as not to break up the beans, and simmer for 20 minutes over low heat. Do not let chili boil.
8. Stir in sour cream, adjust seasoning with additional salt, pepper or hot sauce to taste
