White Chicken Chili

What is it about fall that kicks your body into comfort craving, body fat making overdrive? 

I have made four desserts in the last week that I had planned on featuring here, then realized, man cannot live on dessert alone, although  my handsome husband really thinks he can, and darn it all, the man can eat dessert all day long and never gain an ounce! 

While I only think about Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Coffee frosting and promptly gain ten pounds…..

Don’t care, gonna eat ’em anyway and then spend two hours on the exercise bike, I promise…

But, that is not the recipe for today…. that is a recipe for another day….

 Today, just to make me feel better, I am featuring a soup recipe….. made this for company on Sunday and man, oh man, was it good…..

And so incredibly easy…. I threw it together the night before, put in the fridge, pulled it out after church and heated it up…..

The Cast of Characters







Chop 1 onion, cube 2 lbs chicken, mince 3 cloves garlic, add 1 Tblsp vegetable oil and saute in a large saucepan over medium high heat until chicken is no longer pink




I usually throw a little cumin, salt and pepper in at this stage but as this is a fairly laid back site and

I am a fairly laid back person, you can add whatever your little heart desires…..



Add 1 can great northern beans, 1 can cannelloni beans, 1 can white kidney beans, all rinsed and drained…..

Now again, you can add whatever your cupboard holds– these are the beans I happened to have on hand, and as this is a White Chili, I would not recommend adding colored beans unless you want a Colored Chili, and that is a different recipe…. but again, laid back site, so do whatever you like….. just don’t come complainin’ when it doesn’t turn out like the pictures, ‘k? 

 Glad we got that squared away….

Add 2 cans chicken broth, or 2 cans water and 2 chicken boullion cubes—

Or if you are a really fussy cook, you can make your own chicken broth from scratch, but frankly, only crazy people have the time for that…

Add mo055re cumin, some poultry seasoning, a little salt and pepper, and 2 five oz cans green chili’s and it should look like this….


 I take absolutely no responsibility or liability if it doesn’t….

 This recipe is so easy, that if it doesn’t look like this, you may need to seek a higher level of help than I can offer you….


(I didn’t have 2 cans of green chili’s so I put a jar of green salsa, so if yours looks a little different, it’s ok, I understand…)


Bring pot to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes or however long you need to get the rest of dinner on the table….

Target makes the most amazing corn tortilla chips that go so yummy with this! 

I was not paid to say that although I wish I had been….

Target? Ya interested?  I could possibly increase your profits….. struggling economy, ya know….

Hey, if I can support the flavored coffee creamer industry all by my little lonesome, I am sure that I can make a dent in the Archer Farms profits….

Place corn chips in bowl, dish up soup, top with sour cream and cilantro, and

  1. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. A former Body For Lifer, eh? Cool! I did it about 8 years ago and loved it. Never really totally got away from the priciples and then hit it hard again in August.

    Your prairie life looks devine. So peaceful and simple. I love that.

    And I also make a white chicken chili, very similar to yours. Try shredding the chicken next time you make it. I’m not sure why, but it adds so much interest.

    Have a very blessed day!

  2. ooops…I mean “divine”! I can’t spell.
