White Chicken Chili

Yum. Last week, I wanted it to be fall. I don’t care that I live in Texas so it’s still hot in the middle of October, I want it to be fall! So, I could not wait any longer and I had to make this white chicken chili. Okay, I’m not exaggerating, this stuff is DELICIOUS! It honestly tastes like comfort food, and then you look at the ingredients and realize that it’s all healthy. Amazing, right?

White Chicken Chili

Recipe by Our Best Bites

I call this a chili, but it’s really a soup consistency.
If you want it thicker, just reduce the amount of broth.

1 T Extra virgin Olive Oil
1 lb boneless chicken, cubed (about 3-4 boneless, skinless breasts)
1 medium onion, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans Great Northern Beans
1 3.5 oz can green chilies
1/2 t cumin
1/2 t dried oregano leaves
1/2 t coriander
1/2 t salt
fresh cracked pepper
1 lime
1/2 C chopped cilantro
1 32oz box chicken broth

(I straight up copied and pasted this from their website)

In a large pot, heat olive oil. Add chopped onion and cook for about 2 minutes- just until it starts to become translucent. While onions are cooking, drain beans and rinse with cold water and set aside. Sprinkle chopped chicken with a little salt and pepper and add to pot. Add garlic as well. Cook until there’s no more visible pink on the chicken, probably 3-4 minutes.

Then add green chills- along with all of the juices in the can. Add beans, cumin, oregano, coriander, salt, and a few turns of fresh cracked pepper. Stir to combine and then add chicken broth.

Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer uncovered for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and add the juice from one lime and the 1/2 C chopped cilantro. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Makes about 8 cups of soup.

The picture on their website is beautiful, mine, not so much. BUT, you still make to make this, it is SO good! :)

Have a wonderful week!
