Val's White Chicken Chili

Print Friendly and PDF

We first tasted this recipe at Laurie and Val's house in Oceanside and could not stop eating it.  It is perfect for a cold, chilly night and is quick to make.  The recipe originally comes from Sam the Cooking Guy, a San Diego celebrity chef.  You can use cooked rotisserie chicken from Safeway in this recipe.

1 small yellow onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 cans Great Northern white beans, drained
4 oz. can diced green chilies
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
2 cups chicken broth
2 tsp cumin
1/2 - 1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp oregano
Salt, to taste

Rinse the beans and drain them.  Saute the onion and garlic in 2 T olive oil for a few minutes.  Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes.  Top with chopped parsley (optional).
