INGREDIENTS  

  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 4 15.8 ounce cans of white beans drained
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast cubed
  • 2 cans green chiles undrained
  • 16 ounces frozen corn
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno chopped (about one jalapeno)
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves packed
  • Sour cream to serve.

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat in a pan. Add the chicken and saute for about 3-5 minutes then remove and set aside.
  • In the pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and jalapeno. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Rough chop 1/2 cup of cilantro and add to onion, garlic and jalapeno mixture. Saute for a few seconds then add all to a large pot.
  • Add all seasonings (cumin, cayenne, oregano, paprika, black pepper, salt). Reduce heat to medium and let simmer.
  • Add the beans and chicken stock.
  • Let the chili simmer at least another 30 minutes, but the longer, the better. Use a potato masher to mash the beans- a few mashes should do the trick. You should do this before adding the chicken if the beans are nice and soft.
  • Add in the chicken, corn and chiles.
  • Before serving, add the rest of cilantro.
