This is a great beginning for white chicken chili. :) I have made it several times so far and I had the best results when I modified it a little to my family's taste. We prefer it without the cayenne pepper, with a little more cumin, a little less garlic and a dash of white pepper. Very good overall.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak beans overnight,and drain the next day.
  2. In a large pot cook beans in chicken stock for 1 hour,then add everything except cheese and sour cream. Cook beans until tender THIS COULD BE UP TO 2 HOURS,please note the time it takes for the beans to cook through makes the chicken very tender. Once beans are tender add cheese and sour cream and stir.
  3. Serve with cornbread,or chips.
  4. Please note that you can use canned beans for a shortcut,just cook everything through before adding to chicken stock,and reduce cooking time. You can also dump everything but cheese and sour cream in a LARGE crock pot after beans have soaked overnight,and just follow crockpot manufacturers time range for cooking basic chili,and add sour cream and cheese at the very end.
