White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili - one of the best soups ever! Filled with chicken, beans, corn and more! { lilluna.com }

Would you believe it warmed back up again here in Houston this past week?! Pretty sad!!

The funny thing is, my mom has told me how cool (and sometimes cold) it’s been back in Arizona the past month. Pretty ironic for me to think since we always sweated a bit on Halloween in Arizona. Looks like I’ll be doing the same here in Houston (insert sad face!!)

That’s not keeping me from making soups, though. I officially declared it Soup Season, and by golly, the soup making will continue!! LOL!

I know I shared a Creamy White Chicken Chili last year and another one White Chicken Chili last week, but it’s probably our favorite soup so we’re bound to try several recipes for it. This is another Chicken Chili Soup that was beyond delicious and definitely worth sharing.

This recipe called for corn which wasn’t in the other recipes, and was a perfect addition! I’m actually wishing I had a bowl of this right now. It just looks so good!

White Chicken Chili
  • 1 TB Vegetable Oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 1 TB onion powder
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 15 oz cans white bean rinsed and drained
  • 1 small can diced green chiles
  • 1 11 oz can whole kernel corn
  • 1½ cups Monterrey Jack or Cheddar Cheese
  • 3 TB fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, sliced
  1. Marinade your chicken in Italian Dressing, if possible, for at least 6 hours. Cube your chicken.
  2. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add cubed chicken, cumin, oregano, onion powder, salt and pepper. Cook approx 5-7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Add minced garlic and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add chicken broth, beans, corn and green chilis. Bring mixture to a boil. Once at a boil turn to low heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  4. Add cheese and stir until melted. Sprinkle with cilantro and Enjoy!

As always, you can throw in or leave out any other ingredients that you think would taste good in this. I may try a little sour cream next time. Couldn’t hurt, right?

      For sure, Jamielyn! Nothing better than a nice bowl of soup on a cool (not cold just yet in TX), rainy day. 😉

    I can’t believe how muggy it was today in Houston. I had to take my daughter shopping for a homecoming dress and the air was so thick! I’m glad you are making it soup season because I just can’t bring myself to do it when I’m still in shorts…sigh. But I’m loving all your recipes and can’t wait to try them when it gets just a tad cooler…lol!! Thanks for another great recipe!!
