RPG Buffet 14 (Year of D&D Part 8: Dungeons and Dragons Fourth Edition) (28:34)

An overview of D&D Fourth Edition, before the specific setting entries come up.

October is always chili night, and as always John has refused to share his chili recipe with the audience. Mags brought White Chicken Chili, and presents the recipe from CDKitchen.com.

Tomatillo Chicken Chili w/White Beans (CDKitchen)

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 3/4 pound ground chicken
1 white onion
3 cloves garlic
1 serrano chili
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 tablespoon coriander
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound tomatillos
2 cans white beans
1 can (4 oz size) mild green chilies
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup chopped cilantro
Optional pumpkin seeds, sour cream, grated jack cheese

Preheat large soup pot with vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add ground chicken when hot.

Meanwhile, dice onion and garlic. Remove seeds from Serrano chili and finely mince. Break chicken up with a wooden spoon every couple of minutes. After chicken has been cooking for about 5 minutes, add onion and continue to cook breaking up chicken and stirring every couple of minutes.

Remove husks from tomatillos and rinse to remove sticky coating. When chicken has been cooking with the onions for about 3 minutes, add garlic, Serrano, cumin, coriander, and salt. Continue cooking for another 2 minutes.

Roughly chop tomatillos, or cut into quarters if the tomatillos are small. Add tomatillos to meat. Place a lid on the pot and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Crain and rinse white beans. Drain chilies and finely chop. Chop cilantro. After tomatillos have been cooking for 10 minutes, add beans and green chilies along with chicken stock. Cover with lid and bring to a boil. Remove lid and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for another 8 minutes until chili has thickened and liquid has reduced slightly.

Remove from heat and stir in cilantro if serving immediately. If not serving immediately, save cilantro and serve as a garnish on each bowl. Taste for seasoning and adjust with more salt if necessary. Top with optional pumpkin seeds, sour cream, or cheese and serve.

My attempts at playing 4E tapped out at 3rd level and it was a slog then. I can't imagine trying to do a 7th level PvP session. Ugh! I'll stick w/ Pathfinder.
