Green Tortilla Chili

Another from Sandie's week.
We all rated this a 9. I wanted cheese(white cheddar) just because we love cheese and it was a great addition! We would definitely make this again!

Green Tortilla Chili
Ingredients
3/4 of a rotisserie chicken, stripped and shredded
or1 to 2 cups leftover roast turkey meat, shredded
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 to 2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 of a 16-ounce jar tomatillo salsa (or green salsa)
1/2 bottle of beer, any brand you like
1/2 quart chicken stock (2 cups)
2 large handfuls tortilla chips (crushed into small peices)
1 small handful cilantro leaves (chopped)
Juice of 1 lime
preparation
Heat a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat with the EVOO. Cook onions, garlic, and jalapeño until soft, about 4 minutes.
Add chili powder and cumin, and cook for another minute. Add the tomatillo salsa, beer and stock. Bring up to a bubble and add in the shredded chicken. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Add tortilla chips and cilantro leaves into the chili and continue cooking until it thickens, about 8-10 minutes.Right before spooning into bowls, add in the lime juice and serve with some whole corn tortilla chips alongside.
