Dive into Comfort with Creamy White Chili: A Recipe for the Soul

Creamy White Chili Recipe: There's something undeniably comforting about a hot bowl of chili on a chilly day. But when the craving leans towards something lighter and creamier, classic tomato-based chili just doesn't hit the spot. That's where Creamy White Chili swoops in, offering a unique flavor profile that's both cozy and satisfying.

This recipe is a symphony of tender chicken, savory beans, and a touch of spice, all enveloped in a luxuriously creamy broth. Don't worry, it's easier to make than you might think! So, gather your ingredients and let's whip up a pot of this heartwarming goodness:


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts/thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (15.5 oz) cans Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can chicken broth
  • 2 (4 oz) cans chopped green chiles (mild, medium, or hot, depending on your preference)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for a kick)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • Salt to taste

Optional Toppings:

  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Diced avocado
  • Lime wedges
  • Tortilla chips


  1. Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side.
  2. Stir in the onion and garlic, and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the beans, chicken broth, green chiles, cumin, oregano, black pepper, and cayenne pepper (if using). Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and flavors meld.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream and heavy cream until well combined. Season with salt to taste.
  5. Serve hot, garnished with your desired toppings. Enjoy!


  • For a thicker chili, mash some of the beans before adding them to the pot.
  • You can substitute chicken breast with thighs for a richer flavor.
  • Feel free to adjust the spice level to your preference by adding more or less cayenne pepper.
  • If you don't have heavy cream, you can use whole milk instead.
  • Leftovers store well in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat gently over low heat, adding a splash of milk or broth if needed.
So, ditch the ordinary and embrace the creamy! This Creamy White Chili is sure to become a winter staple, offering warmth, comfort, and deliciousness in every spoonful. So grab your pot, gather your loved ones, and get ready to indulge in a culinary hug!
