No one wants extra clean up, especially when you’re having a lot of people over. This white chili is perfect for tailgate parties, family dinners, or just something to keep in the fridge for an easy go-to dinner throughout the week.


  1. Start by making a super flavorful chili paste. On a sheet pan, put a whole red onion, 6 cloves of garlic in the skin, 2 poblano peppers and 2 jalapeno peppers.
  2. Broil everything until the peppers are completely charred.
  3. Put the peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap for 20 minutes. Then, peel off the skin and de-seed them.
  4. Throw all the vegetables into a food processor and puree everything until smooth.
  5. Heat up oil in a dutch oven and toast cumin, coriander, chili powder, garlic and onion powder, and paprika for just a minute.
  6. Season three chicken breasts with salt and pepper and cook on each side just for a couple of minutes. Pour in the chili paste and cook for 5 minutes.
  7. Pour stock over just to cover and cook on medium for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is 150F, and then take the chicken out.
  8. Rinse and dry any type of canned white beans. Add them to the pot along with diced tomatoes and cook and cook for about 10 minutes.
  9. Shred the chicken, add it back into the pot, and cook just for 5 minutes.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
