Creamy White Chicken Chili Recipe

Lately I have been craving soups, soups, and more soups!  I finally got around to making White Chicken Chili on Friday and I’m sharing my recipe this morning.  I first had White Chicken Chili at Don Pablo’s and since they are not around any more in our area I have to make it myself.

I looked at a few recipes, mashed them together, and changed things according to my personal preferences.  Shockingly it turned out really, really well.  This soup is savory, creamy, and a little spicy (to me at least!).

Here’s the Ingredients:

  • white chicken chili recipe ingredients2-3 Tablespoons of olive oile
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1.5 pounds of cooked, shredded chicken (I cheated & used chicken from a Rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 can of green chilis
  • 2 cans of cannellini or Great Northern beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 24 ounces of chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 teaspoons of hot sauce
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • Monterrey Jack cheese to sprinkle on top


  1. Heat the olive oil in dutch oven over medium heat.  Cook onions and garlic in the oil until they are soft.
