White Chicken Chili

Most of us have made the traditional classic Chili featuring beef, kidney beans, tomatoes, and the traditional chili spices but have you tried white chicken version yet? If not you definitely need to give it a try. You’ll love the way the flavors of this Chili blend together, those tender pieces of chicken and that creamy broth. It tastes far different from the classic Chili but it’s a welcome change.


2 pounds of Chicken Thighs, bone in, skin on

2 Tbsp of Olive Oil

1 Medium Yellow Onion, diced

1 Green Bell Pepper, minced

4 Cloves of Garlic, minced

4 Tbsp of Taco Seasoning

1 can of Northern Beans, drained and rinsed

1 can of Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed

2 cans of Corn Kernels, drained and rinsed

2-4oz cans of Mild Green Chilis (fire roasted if you can find them)

10 cups of Chicken Stock

1 cup of Heavy Cream

4oz of Softened Cream cheese

Taco Seasoning:

2 tablespoons Chili Powder

1 tablespoon ground Cumin

2 teaspoons sea salt

2 teaspoon ground Black Pepper

1 teaspoon ground Paprika

1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder

1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder

1/2 teaspoon crushed Red Pepper Flakes

1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano

In a large dutch oven, add the oil, while it preheats and gets nice and hot over medium high heat, season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, cook skin side down until they develop a gorgeous deep golden brown color, remove to a plate.

Add the onions, pepper and garlic, sauté about 7 minutes, then add the beans, corn, mild chilis, taco seasoning, stock and seared chicken back in, bring to a boil, lower the heat to medium low, partially cover and simmer for an hour.

After an hour, take the chicken out, discard the skin, finely shred it well (do this in a mixer with a paddle attachment) add it back to the soup, then add the cream and cream cheese and let it simmer about 20 minutes, adjust the seasoning to taste and serve with toppings of choice.
