Best Ever Creamy White Chicken Chili Recipe

October 30, 2014

This is a long standing traditional favorite in my family during halloween week! Since it was my mother’s recipe, I have to vote that it is the best ever creamy white chicken chili recipe. Such a good comfort food option that you can make in your crockpot or over stove top. 


1 lb. shredded cooked chicken (I sometimes use a rotisserie chicken for shortcuts)
6 c. chicken broth (homemade chicken broth is really nutrient rich!)
1/2 Onion chopped
1 Can Green Chiles
2 Garlic minced cloves
2 Cans Cannellini Beans
1/2 c. Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 c. Sour Cream
1 c. Shredded Monterrey Jack Cheese
Salt & Pepper
1/4 t. Cayenne Pepper
1/2 t. Cumin
1/4 t. Oregano

– In a large sauce pot, simmer the chopped onion and shredded chicken until onions are clear.
– Add minced garlic cloves and green chiles and sauté a few more minutes.  – Salt and pepper to preference.
– Pour in chicken broth, canellini beans, and seasonings. Bring to a low boil to let the flavors simmer as long as you prefer.
– Stir in heavy cream, sour cream, and shredded cheese until melted.
– Serve with a dash of oregano and pinch of shredded cheese on top. Pass out from a food coma afterwards;)

UPDATE: I have loved trying variations over the years if I am missing ingredients, and recently I swapped pancho queso for the sour cream and Herdez salsa verde for green chiles and oh. my. worrrrd. Definitely worth trying if you can! I sometimes also just use milk instead of heavy cream. Hope you enjoy!
