Easy White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili

I love a good chili recipe and recently created the best Easy White Chicken Chili for any night of the week. You can make this in under 30 minutes and it has tons of flavor with minimal ingredients. You can really bring a tasty chili together with ground meat, beans, seasonings and in this recipe, chicken broth. I added green salsa too which brings all the flavors of peppers, onion and tomatillos without all the prep. Read on for the recipe!

How to Make Easy White Chicken Chili

First, get out all of your ingredients. For this recipe, I am using ground chicken. You could also use ground turkey or ground beef. Next, you will need 2 cans of white beans, Cannellini or similar. You’ll need a jar of green salsa and chicken broth. I’ve tried this recipe with the green salsa from Trader Joes and one from Amazon Fresh. Both turned out amazing. You’ll also need salt, pepper, cumin and chili powder. Lastly, you’ll add in the sour cream.

I like to drain and rinse the canned beans. 

For the seasonings, I used 1 teaspoon of each to add to the meat while it cooks. Also add in salt and pepper to taste.

Cook the ground chicken throughly before adding in the salsa and chicken broth. Then add the beans in and simmer for 10-20 minutes.
