White Bean Chicken Chili

This was last night dinner and boy was it good. This White Bean Chicken Chili has a southwestern taste and it's just wonderfully fresh and filling! We added extra lime in our bowls and The Other Williams fried up some flour tortillas we had hanging around to serve with it. Also we couldn't find canned tomatillos so we just used fresh and we thing it probably taste better this way. You can also try using salsa verde instead of the canned tomatillos.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound diced, cooked chicken meat
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 (18.75 ounce) can tomatillos, drained and chopped
1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (7 ounce) can diced green chiles
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seed
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (15 ounce) can white beans
2 ears fresh corn
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
1 lime, sliced

Heat oil, and cook onion and garlic until soft.
Stir in broth, tomatillos, tomatoes, chilies, and spices. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.
Add corn, chicken, and beans; simmer 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with these toppings for people to choose from: limes, cilantro, cheese, avocado, sour cream, and tortilla chips.


  1. I love soups like this - so flavorful, filled with good things.
