Chicken Chili Chili Bang Bang !

This is a white chicken chili.

The kids and I watched the movie "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" after we ate our chili, that is how we named it!

This is a very good comfort food chili.

You can add more heat by adding more jalapeno peppers and including the veins and seeds! I printed my mild version here because most people don't like chili as spicy as I do. You can make it as hot as you like!

My grandchildren love this chili and they like it with the corn, sometimes we have made it without the beans.

I hope you try this chili and see just how good it is!

How to Make Chicken Chili Chili Bang Bang !

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel potatoes, dice them and put in large pot. Put in just enough water to cover and then add 2 cups more water. Bring to a boil and cook about 10 minutes or until tender.
  2. Saute the celery in butter (or olive oil) for 5 minutes, then add the remaining veggies. Do not brown the veggies! Add a little water if needed to prevent browning.

    Add the veggies to the pan with the potatoes and water.
  3. Add the beans and chicken.

    (Do not drain liquids from the cans! This is the only salt needed unless you choose to add more).
  4. Add the soups and spices. Heat thoroughly about 8 minutes or so.

    If you like a thinner chili, feel free to add some water until you reach the desired consistancy.
  5. *** You can follow this recipe or exchange or leave out ingredients you may not care for, but this will change the results a bit.
