White Chili to Warm a Cold, Hungry Cowboy

2 medium onions chopped

4 garlic cloves, minced

2 (4 ounce) cans chopped mild green chilies

2 teaspoons ground cumin

3 (16 ounce) cans great northern beans, undrained

6 cups chicken stock or 6 cups canned chicken broth

4 cups chopped cooked chicken, to taste (Use canned chicken for speed)

Throw it all in a pot. Simmer until the onions and garlic are tender. Serve. I am alllllllllll about fast and easy. Add Cayenne pepper if you like some heat and a can of diced tomatoes if you’re not afraid to turn it a bit red.

Garnish with Monterey Jack cheese

  1. Hi Mary, Did you say fast? Easy? YES! You’re singin’ my song. This sounds really good. I’ve never made a white chili before. I’m wondering if the tomatoes would turn it pink… if they did, you could call it “Cowgirl Chili” LOL

    Didn’t realize chili came in anything other than the red version until a trip to Idaho in the early 80’s when my nephew ordered chili and was quite shocked when it was green. Have had white chili a few times recently but not yet make it. This is quick and easy. Works for those days when you get busy and forget you need to feed the family.

  3. Love your recipe! Yummy. Now I have two decisions to make just for today’s soup!

  4. I need to go home and make this. I miss the cold weather cooking. Chili, stew, roasts. All those things that we don’t get in the summer.

  5. Hi Mary,
    Throw it all in a pot. That’s my kind of recipe!

  6. Mary, I think this is on the menu for tonight. Looks delicious!

  7. oooh, i love soups now the weather has turned especially
    simple and easy are my bestest friends…along with you of course mary 🙂

  8. We’re finally getting our summer after one of the coldest ones ever, so with today being in the 80’s (a heatwave for here LOL) I’ll have to make this in a few days LOL. But it sure looks delish. oxox

  9. Mary, I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy things to fix. I love beans. Any kind, any color. Yummmm, I can smell them cooking now! And the green chilies make everything scrumptious. I’m printing out this recipe for sure.

  10. Mary, this looks really good. I’m all about EASY too. LOL
