I don’t know where you are, but it can get cold here in Cincinnati, Ohio. I’m talking so cold it could put a freezer to shame. It’s during these cold months when the only thing that seems to keep us Cincinnatians warm is a nice bowl of chili.
In case you weren’t aware, Cincinnati is a big chili city. In fact, it is such a big deal that it has its own Cincinnati Chili recipe that is made with some seasonings and flavors that wouldn’t think of going into chili like cinnamon and chocolate. Yep, you read right. But you know the crazy thing about those flavors is that it works! You know what else works? White Chili! When I first learned of this type of chili recipe, I had to scratch my head because it seemed so different, but it tasted great!
What’s in White Chicken Chili?
The ingredients in this chili recipe aren’t all that different from regular chili. There’s onions, garlic, celery, chili spices, chicken (of course) and beans. You wouldn’t put red chili beans in this recipe. Instead, you would use BUSH’s White Chili Beans. The soup portion of this chili recipe is made with chicken stock and a touch of heavy cream for extra creaminess.
When making this chili recipe, you can use white or dark meat. I prefer to use dark meat because it gives the chili more flavor. Instead of chicken breast I used boneless chicken thighs. It is up to you what cut of meat you would like to use. You can use rotisserie chicken or boneless chicken thighs.
