Healthy White Chicken Chili Recipe

Living in San Diego, we have a very interesting view of what “cold weather” is, but last week parts of northeast San Diego actually saw SNOW, which is practically unheard of in San Diego!

On New Years Eve I flew back to San Diego after spending the holidays in Oklahoma with my family. I planned on returning home from the 19 degree temperatures of Oklahoma to 75 and sunny in San Diego. That was not quite the case.

It was definitely “San Diego cold” meaning below 50 degrees at night, which meant it was time for me to whip up something warm to eat!

White Chicken Chili Recipe

I’ve had the idea for this White Chicken Chili lingering around on my “recipes to make list” for sometime now, and with this frigid San Diego weather (haha!) I knew that this was the perfect time to make it!

I whipped up this soup in a matter of minutes, then let it slow cook for about 4 hours.

White Chicken Chili Ingredients

Slow Cooked White Chicken Chili Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup white onion (diced)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 jalapeno (de-seeded & minced)
  • 2 lbs ground chicken breast
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 can (15 oz) cannelloni beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 can (15 oz) great northern beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup lime juice

Optional Toppings

  • 1 lime (sliced into wedges)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • 1 jalapeño (sliced)
  • ¼ cup cilantro

Slow Cooked White Chicken Chili Instructions

Add the olive oil to a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat. When hot, add the onion, garlic and jalapeno, saute 4-5 minutes, then add the chicken breast, cumin, oregano, chili powder, pepper & salt.

Slow Cooked White Chicken Chili Recipe

Cook the chicken through, then transfer to a slow cooker with both cans of beans and the green chilies.

Pour the chicken broth into the crock pot, add the lime juice and mix everything together.

Cover and slow cook on high for 2-4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours.

Add the toppings of your choice. I’m a fan of adding creaminess and a little spice, so I went with fresh sliced jalapeños, avocado and sour cream!
