White Bean Chili

Patricia Clevenger


My family will request this on cooler days. Easy, quick and ingredients that are usually in the house. The recipe can be kicked up a notch with more cayenne or hot sauce. Either way, great to fix, eat or freeze for later. Enjoy!

How to Make White Bean Chili


  • 1Wash the beans over a colander. Place the washed beans into a large cooking pot. Boil the beans to a rolling boil for 1 hour. May need to add water to keep covered and extra water for soup.
  • 2Drain out the water storing the chicken in the cans. Rinse the chicken in the cans by running water over the chicken in the cans. Crunch up the chicken into the bean pot after the beans have cooked for 1 hour.
  • 3Add the remaining ingregidents. Boil for another 30 minutes to incorporate the flavors.
  • 4You may use chicken breast as well but will need to boil in large pot until tender to break apart the chicken. Use this chicken stock that boiled the chicken when cooking the beans. Can cook the beans at the same time. May need to add water with chicken bouillon cubes or chicken stock if water gets low while boiling the beans.
