This recipe is from Epicurious. After making it several years ago, I decided that it was so deliciously satisfying that I never wanted to search for or make another chili recipe....ever again. AND it's very easy! One pot. I love that.


I have made four changes to this recipe and am very happy with the result. Instead of 3 1/2 TBL of regular chili powder, I use 1/2 TBL SPICY powder (it has red pepper flakes) and 3 TBL of regular. I use ROASTED tomatoes (you can find them anywhere), 1 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder and 1 TBL Smoked Paprika which, in my humble opinion, is the SECRET INGREDIENT for this recipe. Enjoy~

How to Make Chicken and White Bean Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; sauté until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add chicken; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté until chicken is no longer pink outside, about 5 minutes.
  3. Mix in chili powder, smoked paprika, unsweetened cocoa powder, tomato paste, cumin, and oregano. Add beans, 1 cup reserved bean juices, and canned tomatoes. Simmer until chicken is cooked through and chili is thickened, about 25 minutes. If chili is too thick, add more bean juices by tablespoonfuls to thin. Season chili to taste with salt and pepper.
