White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili is the ultimate creamy comfort food on a cold night! We love top ours off with avocado, pepper jack cheese, sour cream, & more. Sharing our go-to recipe below:

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 onions diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds cooked & shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 32 ounces low sodium chicken broth
  • 4 cans great northern white beans (15.5 oz) cans, fully drained & rinsed
  • 3 cans diced green chiles (4 oz) cans, drained
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped (game changer!)
  • 8 ounces low fat cream cheese cubed
  • 1 cup heavy cream

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:

  • Fritos Scoops
  • sliced jalapeños
  • chopped cilantro
  • shredded pepper jack cheese
  • sour cream
  • sliced avocado
  • lime juice

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a stock pot, saute onions & garlic in the olive oil & lime juice over medium high heat. Cook until the onions are fragrant & translucent.
  2. Add in the cooked chicken, chicken broth, beans, chiles, & seasoning. Bring to a boil, stirring often, then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer uncovered for 30-45 minutes, or until it’s the thickness you desire. Stir occasionally. (We let ours simmer for a full hour to let all the flavors blend fully – but it would have been ready to go after 30 minutes, if you start feeling hangry!)
  3. Turn off the heat & stir in the cubed cream cheese. Stir constantly until the cream cheese melts & incorporates completely. Stir in the heavy cream.
  4. Top with as many (or as few!) toppings as you desire.
  5. Eat up!
