From a pot luck at our school, I fell in love with this chili. I tweak it a little and describe it in the directions, but I left the original recipe given me as is, in case you prefer it that way! You can always change the spice to make it less spice or more :)

How to Make White Chicken Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook chicken & cut into small pieces.
  2. Chop green pepper & onion.
    Saute with garlic until almost tender.

    *I omitted the green pepper the first time as I didn't have any at the time. It was still delicious.
  3. Add chicken and some chili powder to green pepper, onion and garlic, stir 1-2 minutes.

    *Chili powder to your personal tastes, I used about 1 tbsp, eyeballing it.
  4. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil, adding some more chili powder.

    *Same idea with chili powder again. I added about 1 tbsp again.
  5. Add salsa, great northern beans, rotel & corn, bring to a boil, adding chili powder to taste.

    *I added about 3 tbsp. of chili powder in all, so 1 more here! If you prefer canned corn you can add 1-2 cans instead of frozen.
  6. Simmer 1/2 hour, then add shredded cheese, stirring slowly for even melting.

    *I don't enjoy shredding cheese, so I buy the kind I like already shredded. I typically add a bag of Mexican blend and a bag of pepper jack blend.
