Creamy Chicken Lime And White Bean Chili

Jennifer Darden


This is a cross between chicken tortilla soup and white bean chili and dished up in clay bowls that my dad used to serve up roasted oysters from the grill in :) The white beans give your palate a sense of chili, while the spices and crushed tortilla chips offer a sense of chicken tortilla soup.

How to Make Creamy Chicken Lime And White Bean Chili


  • 1Heat oil over medium heat in a Dutch oven.
  • 2Add next 4 ingredients. Stir for about 30 seconds to release the fragrant oils. Keep stirring and be careful not to let them burn.
  • 3Toss in onion and sauté until tender and caramelized. Pour in wine and deglaze pan for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • 4Add lime juice. Then chicken stock. If you’re using fresh and it’s been refrigerated or frozen it can take a few minutes to dissolve. If you’re using canned, just stir to heat through.
  • 5Add celery soup. Bring to a boil and whisk to dissolve. Turn down to medium.
  • 6Add chicken, chilies, and beans. Cook for about 20 minutes to heat and meld all of the flavors together.
  • 7Pour in the cream and continue cooking for about another 10 to 15 minutes to thicken. Serve with sour cream, a bit of onions, and crumbled tortilla chips.
