Football season brings on the tailgate classics. This White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe has been a favorite of ours for years. I find I’m partial to it over traditional chili because of its freshness with the lime juice being added at the end.  I’m a brand loyalist when it comes to canned beans so I always use Bush’s White Cannellini Beans. Feel free to substitute if you wish, but using them always guarantees the taste and consistency we love!

Serve up with a side of homemade cornbread and you’ve got a game winner every time!

  1. Sauté chopped onion in hot oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat 7 minutes; add garlic, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in chicken pieces, and cook, stirring constantly, until chicken is lightly browned.
  3. Stir in 3 cups water and next 5 ingredients; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, 10 minutes or until chicken is done.
  4. Place 2 cans of beans in a blender; add broth, and process until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.
  5. Stir bean pureé, remaining 2 cans of beans, in Dutch oven; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Stir in lime juice just before serving. Garnish, if desired.

I am in no way affiliated with Bush’s Beans at this time. We use them and love them.
