How to Make White Chili with Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Warm the oil in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and saute, stirring often, for about 7 minutes. Stir in the chili powder, cumin,oregano, and garlic and saute for another minute. Stir in the white beans, chicken, corn, green chilies,chicken broth, and salt. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer and allow it to continue simmering, partially covered, for 10 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, blend together the butter and flour. Add the mixture to the chili and stir until it thickens, about a minute. Add more salt and pepper to taste. If you like, add more broth to thin the chili or more half and half to thicken it. Serve the chili hot, topped with cheese, crushed chips and sour cream if desired.
