White Bean Chicken Chili Soup (Recipe)


✅ 7 cups chicken broth

✅ 4 – 15.8 ounce cans of Bush's Beans great northern beans (cannellini or navy beans could be substituted)

✅  1 carrot, peeled, chopped

✅1 teaspoon parsley

✅ 1 teaspoon cumin

✅ 1 teaspoon oregano

✅ 1 teaspoon paprika
✅ 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (or ground cayenne pepper)

✅ 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

✅ 1/4 teaspoon salt

✅ 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (Kasadrinos **FREE Bottle**)

✅ 1 1/4 pound chicken breast, cubed

✅ 1 cup onion, diced

✅ 4 cloves garlic, minced

✅ 1 tablespoon jalapeno, chopped (about one jalapeno)

✅ 1 cup cilantro leaves, packed


1️⃣ In a large stock pot bring chicken broth and beans to a boil.

2️⃣ Add all seasonings (parsley, cumin, oregano, paprika, red pepper, black pepper, salt). Reduce heat to medium and let simmer.

3️⃣ In a saute pan heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat. Add chicken and saute about 3-5 minutes then add chicken to the large pot.

4️⃣ In saute pan heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, garlic and jalapeno and saute until softened, about 5 minutes.

5️⃣ Rough chop 1/2 cup of cilantro and add to pan with the onion, garlic and jalapeno mixture. Saute for a few seconds then add all to pot.

6️⃣ Let chili simmer at least another 30 minutes, but the longer, the better. To thicken up chili a little use a potato masher to mash some of the beans up. A few mashes should do the trick. You could do this before adding the chicken if the beans are nice and soft.
