Here are the ingredients you'll need:

  • 2 and 1/2 cups of shredded chicken
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 14.5 oz chicken broth
  • 1 can of green chilies
  • Cumin, Coriander, Paprika, Cayenne, Onion powder, Garlic powder, Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Some amount of corn (as much as you prefer)
  • Cannellini beans (as much as you prefer)
  • 1/3 fat cream cheese (inserted note: You might be tempted to use regular cream cheese, but trust us on this one, the reduced-fat version works best.)
  • For toppings: cheese, avocado, lime

Let’s turn those ingredients into a warming bowl of chili!

Step 1: Dice That Onion

Grab your sweet onion and chop it up into about half-inch dice – or smaller if you prefer.

Step 2: Mince Your Garlic

Minced garlic is going to give this chili an inviting, homely aroma. So peel and mince those cloves!

Step 3: Simmer Away

In a pot, combine your shredded chicken, the prepared onion, and garlic, with chicken broth, and the green chilies. Stir in the cumin, coriander, paprika, cayenne, onion powder, garlic powder, and a bit of salt and pepper. Let the mixture bubble away softly until all flavors marry.

Step 4: Add Corn & Beans

Now, toss in the corn and Cannellini beans, for a hearty, filling vibe.

Step 5: The Moment of Creaminess

This is where the magic happens! Add in the 1/3 fat cream cheese and let it melt in. This gives your White Chicken Chili a creamy, velvety texture that contrasts deliciously with the spicy, savory soup.

Step 6: Serve It Up

Garnish each bowl with a generous serving of cheddar cheese, some diced avocado, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. This gives your child a tangy, brightly flavored contrast to the rich, warmth of the soup.

And voila! You've made a pot of the BEST White Chicken Chili you'll ever taste! This delightfully hearty, creamy, and spicy chicken chili is yours to savor or share. Cradle your bowl, fork at the ready, and relish each comforting mouthful.

Until the next culinary adventure, keep those pots simmering. Happy cooking, folks!
