Tasty Tuesday: White Chicken Chili

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

I was between sharing this recipe and the butternut squash soup recipe for Tasty Tuesday this week and this one won by a landslide on snapchat, so here it is!
If you voted for butternut squash, no worries, it'll be coming later!
I really love regular chili but it's just such a hearty meal and I have to really be in the mood for it.
White chicken chili on the other hand... I could eat this once a week and still love it!
There's something about it's creamy yet spicy flavor.
It reminds me a little of chicken tortilla soup but I probably would prefer this one still!
Make sure you add a little dollop of sour cream and you can't forget the crushed tortilla chips ;)
This recipe was even Oaklyn approved, and trust me, that's saying a whole lot with how picky she has been these days!
Have it on a rainy day while in sweats and watch Hocus Pocus while you're at it ;)


-2-3 Chicken Breasts
-1/2 of an onion, chopped 
-2 tbsp olive oil
-2 cans great northern beans
-32 oz chicken broth
-2 tsp salt
-1 tsp cumin
-2 tsp oregano
-1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1 tsp pepper
-2 cans chopped green chiles
-2 tbsp chopped jalepenos from a jar (optional, adds more spice!)
-2 cups sour cream (or plain greek yogurt)
-1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

-Shredded cheese
-Crushed tortilla chips


1) Boil chicken breasts in water until cooked through
2) Either shred or cube chicken. I go back and forth on which way I like better but if you shred it, leave it in bigger pieces.
3) Heat oil in soup pot. Once heated, add onion. Cook until translucent but not colored.
4) Add chicken and combine for a few minutes stirring occasionally.
5) Add beans, broth, salt, cumin, oregano, pepper, and garlic powder. Give it all a good mix.
6) Let simmer for 30 minutes uncovered, stirring occasionally.
7) Switch to low heat and add heavy whipping cream and sour cream. Stir until combined and let sit for 10 minutes. Season with extra salt and pepper to taste if necessary.
8) Serve with all the yummy toppings and enjoy!

I hope you guys like this recipe just as much as I do!
It makes enough for about 8-10 people and lasted us a few days of leftovers.
I can be pretty weird about leftovers but this is one I could do over and over again!
Just make sure to store in a sealed container in the fridge.

Let me know if you tried it and liked it!

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
