This white chili recipe was given to me by a neighbor and is the best one I have found. When making it, I use lowfat sour cream, lowfat or fat free half & half.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook onion in 2 Tbsp of the olive oil until soft and set aside.
  2. In a dutch oven, add remaining olive oil on low and add flour, stirring continuously to make a roux.
  3. Stir in onion, then gradually add broth, and half and half, whisking constantly.
  4. Bring mixture to a boil, then simmer.
  5. Stir in tabasco, chili powder, cumin, salt, and white pepper, beans, chicken, and chilies, simmer for approximately 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add sour cream, and half and half and simmer for another 15 minutes.
  7. Serve with tortilla chips, salsa, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and sour cream.

VERY GOOD, nice creamy flavor. So I have a record of what I altered...i'm going to bore you readers: 3 (15 oz) cans of navy beans (use 1 or 2 cans of white northern instead of all 3 same) 3 chicken breasts (1 1/2 lb) 1 can green chilis same amount of butter and flour about 2 T sliced, canned jalapanos (and cut smaller) 2 onions and banana peppers 2 cups 1/2 & 1/2 with additional milk and cilantro pesto (blended cilantro) try lime juice next time??? Great spice...adults and 9 year old loved it.

I just made this chili today for a cook off birthday party. It is wonderful. However I do agree with Pittgal that you need the whole container of chicken broth, and more beans. I also doubled the recipe, I am very excited to see what all the guests think of my chili I hope I win the cookoff!

The flavor was great!! I added a red pepper and a couple of dashes of Frank's red hot and I doubled the beans. We loved this recipe although it was a bit confusing. I also used the entire can of chicken broth (about 14 ounces) NOTE: Sautee the onions in a separate pan, then add them to the butter and flour roux. Also, drain the beans before adding to the mixture.
