My friend Michelle Carney and my Mom both shared recipes, years ago, for White Chicken Chili.  Both are similar, except Michelle cooks her chili in the crock pot. I just like to add a lot of seasonings and heat to mine, so I use two cans of chopped green chilies, and a bit more cayenne and cumin.

  • 1 package of boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 cans of chicken broth
  • 2 cans of white beans (Navy Beans or Northern Beans)
  • 2 small cans of chopped green chilies
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons white wine (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons flour (optional, but helps to thicken)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste 
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon complete seasoning (Sazon Completa)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 garlic clove minced

Layer all ingredients in Crock Pot and cook on low all day - about 8 hours.  Garnish with Sour Cream, Cilantro and Tortilla Chips.
