White Bean Chicken Chili is a lighter take on traditional chili, with just a bit of heat and tons of flavor thanks to green chilis, lime juice, and an earthy blend of spices.

 It’s easy, healthy, and perfect for dinner!

Olive oil Yellow onion Garlic Ground chicken Salt Black pepper Ground spices Diced green chilis Cannellini beans Frozen corn Chicken stock Lime juice Cilantro


In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot and begins to shimmer, add the onion and garlic cloves.


Sauté for 5 to 6 minutes until softened. Add the ground chicken, salt, pepper, cumin, and smoked paprika.


Continue to cook until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Turn the heat down to low, then add the diced green chilies.


In a food processor or blender, add one can of the beans, in addition to the drained liquid from the second can, then blend until smooth.


You can add some of the chicken stock to thin it out, if necessary.


Add the pureed beans, drained beans, corn, and stock to the pot and bring to a simmer.


Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the flavors have melded together.


Stir in the lime juice and fresh cilantro, then adjust the seasonings with more salt and pepper, if desired. Serve with desired toppings.


Even better? It’s on the table in well under an hour and the chili freezes beautifully so you can have a quick dinner for another time. That’s a weeknight win!
