I used this recipe at my company's chili cook-off and it came first. I spent weeks after it writing down the recipe for everyone. It takes no time to prepare and its guaranteed to wow everyone.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan bring chicken and broth to simmer and cook over low heat until the chicken is fully cooked (about 10 minutes).
  2. Once cooked take out of the pan and set on a plate to cool, then using your hands finely shred.
  3. Strain the broth and set aside.
  4. Heat oil in a large saucepan, add in onion, and garlic and sweat until onion turns clear.
  5. Add green chillies, cumin, cayenne pepper and mix in well.
  6. Add in beans, shredded chicken, chicken broth, and bring to a slow boil.
  7. Add in cheese and let simmer for 5-10 minutes. It gets better with more simmer so I suggest you taste and stop cooking when its just right for you.
  8. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Garnish with sour cream and jalepenos.

Too good for words. Pot was empty fast, took to work for our potluck and served it from the crockpot.
