Healthy White Chicken Chili

I got this amazing recipe from a client. I made it this weekend and it was a great way to warm up after a “chili” day!


1 tablespoon EVOO

1 1/2 cups chopped onion (I used 1 small onion cause I’m not a huge onion fan)

2 4-ounce cans chopped green chiles

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I used 1/4 t and it was a bit much)

2 15-ounce cans great northern beans, rinsed

1 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed

4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

4 cups shredded cooked skinless turkey, or chicken


Heat oil in a large pot oven over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in chiles, oregano, cumin & cayenne. Cook for 5 minutes. Stir in beans and broth; bring to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes. Add turkey (or chicken); cook for 5 minutes more. Serve.
