30-Minute White Bean Chicken Chili


  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 rotisserie chicken


  1. Melt ghee in a large stock pot on medium-high heat. sauté onion in hot ghee until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour chicken stock into the pot; add the white beans, green chilles, garlic, cumin, and ancho chili powder. Bring to a boil, stir, and cook at a simmer until beans soften, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. While the chili simmers, remove skin from the rotisserie chicken; discard. Strip meat from the bones, shred, and add to the chili; cook for an additional 10 minutes.
Mealthy tip:

Craving more heat for your chili? Spice it up by adding 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or some fresh sliced jalapeños. Or try a combo of both! But definitely taste as you go.

Easy, tasty, healthy - even the kids enjoy it. To make this recipe even quicker, I used a taco seasoning packet. Top with lime-enhanced sour cream and cilantro - but only if you have extra time, as it doesn't need it. If you have tortilla chip crumbs, throw those on top to add a little salty crunch!

Hard to be mad a a chili you can have ready this quickly. I liked using the Ancho powder. Seemed to give a boost in replacing the longer stewing time you normally use for chili. Definitely have this in your arsenal for using those rotisserie chickens to make quick dinners.

So quick, so easy! I usually get chicken chili from a fast food restaurant our here on the west coast, but this recipe will have me dropping that. Th green chilies are great, but not enough heat for me, so the cayenne steps in nicely. Some tortilla strips added to the top gives a great crunch to this chili.

If you're looking for a quick, light, and healthy chili, this recipe is perfect. I added a diced jalapeño for extra spice and two cans of green chilies. Cheese is totally optional, but I added a ton. So yummy!

This turned out great! Followed it to a T except for the fact I was out of Cumin so I used Taco seasoning instead. Added some cilantro and Fiesta flavored tortilla strips on top 👌

I didn’t have any chicken broth or Ancho Chili Pepper so I used turkey broth and chipotle chili pepper. It was still great!
