Chilly fall afternoon on the soccer field? We’ve got a chili for that! If you’ve got leftover chicken and a tween prep cook, you’re on your way to a warm, hearty delicious dinner that everyone will love.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Serves: 6 with some leftovers Prep Time: 45 minutes (if you roast the potatoes) Simmer Time: 20 minutes Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 4 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 2 cups diced potatoes, boiled until just tender - about 5-6 minutes, or roasted at 400 for 15 minutes
  • 2 ½ cups white beans - we used Great Northern
  • ½ cup chopped poblano peppers - fresh or canned
  • ¼ cup diced onions - sauteed in a little butter just until translucent
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus more for topping


  1. Boil or roast potatoes, sautee onions, and chop poblanos.
  2. In a large heavy bottomed sauce pan, combine all prepped ingredients except cheese. Stir to combine.
  3. Heat to a low boil over medium heat, then reduce heat slightly and allow to simmer, stirring gently occasionally, for 20 minutes or until the chili starts to thicken up a bit.
  4. Remove from heat, add ½ cup of grated cheddar and stir until it melts into the chili.
  5. Serve it up! Top with extra cheese!
