My husband can’t wait for it to get cold and begs me to make this white chicken chili recipe for him. It really does not take that long to make.

Award Winning Creamy White Chicken Chili

Winning Cream White Chicken Chili 1

Ingredients:

1 lb chicken cubed (white meat is the best)
1 Med onion
1 Tablespoon oil
2 Cans navy beans
2 4oz cans of green chilis (we used fresh hatch chilis)
2 cups chicken stock (find out to make your own easy chicken stock for pennies)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
2 Cloves garlic minced
1/2 cup cream or half and half
1 cup plain yogurt (or sour cream, learn how to make yogurt in a slow cooker)
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions how to make creamy white chicken chili:

White Chicken Chili Brown Chicken

1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium high heat in a large pot and add chicken and onions and cook until chicken is seared on all sides and onion is translucent for about seven minutes. Add garlic and cook for two more minutes.

2.Open both cans of beans and dump the entire can into the pot. No need to drain. Add spices, chicken stock and green chilis and bring to a low boil. Dot not add cream or yogurt yet. Reduce heat and simmer for twenty minutes to let the flavors meld together. Taste to see how much salt to add. I leave this up to the individual. We do not add much salt to our dishes with tons of spices. We just love the flavor.

3. Take the pot off the heat and let cool for about 2 minutes and stir in plain yogurt and cream. If you don’t allow to cool for a bit, it will curdle the milk and yogurt. It is not pretty, but you can still eat it. Top with shredded cheese and a dollop of plain yogurt.

White Chicken Chili

Our entire family is in love with this creamy white chicken chili. If two cans of chili are too hot for you or the young ones, just add one can next time. Try adding more cream to the little ones bowls to reduce the heat. My kids love to eat this as a dip using tortilla chips to scoop up the chili. For some reason it is icky when it is chili, but you say it is a dip and they can’t get enough! Go ahead and double this meal for a quick and easy freezer meal on those nights you don’t want to cook.
