White Bean Chicken Chili

I’ve made a white bean chili once before and I was very surprised on how delicious it was… I’m a red chili type of girl usually. But I decided I wanted to make it again today, although didn’t feel like going to the grocery store today because it is a frigid 18 degrees. So, I found a different recipe that I had most of the ingredients for and then modified it a bit. I made it immediately for lunch and I can’t get enough. I just used up a lot of my calories and fat for the day… oh well! It was delicious!

White Bean Chicken Chili
1 t onion powder
1 clove garlic, minced
3 T butter
2 tablespoons flour (more or less, or you can use cornstarch)
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 can Navy beans (drained)
1 can cannelini beans (drained)
1-2 cans of Chicken broth (depends how thick you like it)
2 cups chopped, cooked chicken*

toppings (optional):
lots of shredded cheese
sour cream

tortilla chips

*I just used precooked fajita chicken strips I had in the freezer.

Pour can of chicken broth into large pot-cook on stovetop on medium. Add butter, and whisk in onion powder, garlic, and cumin. Once butter is melted, add beans and chicken. Sprinkle in flour (or corn starch/cold water mixture) to thicken, if you’d like. Stir to combine and let simmer until it thickens. Serve with or without toppings.

    This sounds amazing! Especially with the “lots of shredded cheese” topping, maybe Monterey Jack?? I’ll have to try it on our next snowy day 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours is adorable! I love the “silver linings” premise. What an uplifting and inspiring idea. Glad I could meet you!
