Recipe type: Chili
Cuisine: Dinner
Serves: 10
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced finely
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika, optional
  • 4-5 cups chicken stock or chicken broth
  • 4 (15 ounce) cans white beans, drained (I use navy beans or cannellini beans depending on what I have on hand.) Reserve one to puree and use it to thicken soup at the end.
  • 2 cups precooked chicken
  • 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (12 ounce) can Rotel tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 cup of frozen corn (optional)
  • 3 tbsp Italian salad dressing
  • 2 tsp lemon juice or lime juice
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a 5 or 6 quart pot, saute onion, carrot and garlic in the olive oil for 2 minutes. Add Chili powder, cumin, oregano and smoked paprika. Saute for 1 more minute.
  2. Add chicken stock or broth, 3 cans of drained white beans, chicken, Italian salad dressing, Rotel and diced tomatoes. If using corn add it now too. Bring everything to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  3. While soup is simmering, mash or puree in the blender the last drained can of beans. Stir this into the soup to thicken it.
  4. Stir in lemon juice and cilantro. Let cook for another minute or two.
  5. Serve with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, avocado and your favorite corn chips.
