White Chili

This recipe is great for the first really chilly night of fall. This is our friend Barbara Kimmins’ version.

  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 1 pound(s) large white beans
  • 6 cup(s) chicken broth
  • 2 clove(s) garlic, minced
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon(s) vegetable oil
  • 1 (four-ounce) can(s) chopped green chiles
  • 2 teaspoon(s) ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground cayenne pepper
  • 4 cup(s) cooked chicken (approximately 3 whole breasts)
  • 3 cup(s) Monterey Jack cheese
  • Fresh salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Tortilla chips


Soak beans in water overnight. Combine chicken broth, white beans, garlic and one onion. Simmer for 2-3 hours or until beans are just tender.

While beans are cooking, cook chicken. Cool and cut into small pieces.

Sauté remaining onion in oil until transparent. Stir in canned chiles and seasonings. Add to cooked beans. Add chicken and simmer on low for 1 hour.

Serve with cheese, sour cream, salsa and tortilla chips.
