White Chicken Chili

This is one of our favorite chili recipes. Its perfect for a brisk Fall day, or a freezing cold winter evening! I have made this recipe for baby showers, bridal showers, friends coming to dinner... you name it. Its always a big hit. My BFF made it this weekend for a bridal shower, and it reminded me that we have not enjoyed its flavor for a few months now, so I whipped up a pot tonight for dinner! Oh yums. Please make this one!

White Chicken Chili

1 Large Onion, diced
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 TBSP Olive Oil
4 Cups Chicken, cooked & cubed
2 Can (15 oz.) White Kidney/Navy/Great Northern Beans, rinsed & drained
1 Can (15 oz.) Garbonzo Beans, rinsed & drained
4 Cups Chicken Broth
1 can (4 oz.) Chopped Green Chilies
2 tsp. Ground Cumin
1/2 tsp. Oregano
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper (depends on how spicy you like it)

In a small skillet, saute onion and garlic in olive oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Put in large stock pot and add all the other ingredients. Cook on high for about 10-15 minutes, stir well, then reduce heat to low and simmer for an hour. You may need to add more liquid (chicken broth or water) at this point. Serve hot with toppings.

Cilantro Leaves
Corn Chips
Sour Cream
Monterey Jack Cheese


  1. I just cooked and shredded chicken this morning and was wondering what to do with it for dinner. This post was perfect timing and it is delicious!!!

  2. I've never had white chili but I've heard such great things about it. Maybe I'll have to make this for the ward chili cook off this year. :)

  3. This is my ultimate fav and I ate leftovers for a week after and lost weight so there you go! IF we had the interne--and don't think we've gone over this ever month and prayed we'd squeeze enough income in to spring for it--I'd be checking out both your blogs weekly cuz I'm in a cooking rut and need new stuff or new inspiration I'm not sure. Alas.

  4. I tried this recipe with great success. It was as delicious as it looked. It's definitely a recipe I'll make again. Divided into 8 servings, only 8 WW points! Great chili. Even the boys like it. =) Thanks little sister, Em. W. for sharing the link to this awesome blog!
