Recipe Firday--White Chicken Chili

I am so grateful that we finally have football weather to go with football season. As soon as there is the least bit of nip in the air, I think of chili, so I made this earlier this week. It was just as good as I remembered. I got the recipe from new Harlequin Desire author and fabulous cook, Andrea Laurence. You should sash shay over to her Facebook fan page and like her.
( https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/AuthorAndreaLaurence) There is a lot to like about her. Her first book, What Lies Beneath, will be out next April so you'll have to wait a bit to see what a great writer she is. But meanwhile, you can have her chili.

This recipe makes a lot and you won't be sorry. As good as it is in a bowl with some cornbread, it makes great nachos. And it freezes nicely.

Roll Tide, Roll.

White Chicken Chili

1 medium onion, chopped
1 T olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 C water
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp ground oregano
4 cans (15 oz) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
2 cans (14 oz) white corn
2 cans (4.5 oz) green chilies, chopped
4 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
3 T lime juice

Garnishes – lime wedges, sour cream, shredded cheese, etc.

Sauté onion in olive oil in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium high heat 7 minutes; add garlic, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in 3 cups of water and next 5 ingredients.

Place two cans of beans in a food processor; add broth and process until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Stir bean puree, remaining 2 cans of beans, corn and chilies into mixture in the pot.

Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Add cooked, shredded chicken. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Stir in lime juice just before serving.


  1. Sounds good Jean. I am saving this one for when it gets colder (if ever). Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks, Patricia.

    Cheryl, Yeah I always rush the season. Put flannel sheets on the bed and that was a mistake.
