We are just starting to return to normal after experiencing our first major blizzard. It was a long and crazy weekend (we got 31 inches – check out my Instagram for pics and video of the storm) but we made the most of being snowed in for 5 days by cooking, baking, and playing TONS of board games. Today, I’m teaming up with Wayfair to share a really yummy and easy recipe for green chicken chili. It feeds a crowd, is very forgiving if you need to substitute ingredients, and you can freeze the leftovers!

This recipe started out from a slow-cooker recipe I clipped from a magazine years ago. It was not very great because everything slow-cooked itself straight to mush. I recognized the potential though so I started making it on the stove. It was good but it wasn’t until the store was out of a few ingredients and I had to get creative that it turned into something really worth sharing.

Green Chicken Chili
Serves: 12-14
Time: 2.5 hours, includes prep and cook time

3 small yellow onions, diced
2 Cubanelle peppers (can substitute any medium sized mild pepper), diced
2 Anaheim peppers (can substitute any medium sized mild pepper), diced
3-4 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 14 oz. can Great Northern Beans, drained
1 14 oz. can Navy Beans, drained
1 14 oz. can Cannellini Beans, drained
22-30 oz. can corn, drained*
28-30 oz. green chile enchilada sauce*
15 oz. salsa verde*
3 tsp. cumin
2 c. chicken stock, add more if needed
6-8 chicken tenderloins, grilled, cubed
cilantro, chopped
lime wedges
sour cream
tortilla chips

Saute onions and peppers with salt and pepper in olive oil until onion starts to brown. Add garlic and cook one minute.

Add beans, corn, enchilada sauce, salsa verde, cumin, chicken stock, and chicken. Simmer over very low heat 2 hours, adding more chicken stock if needed.

Serve with cilantro, lime wedges, sour cream, and tortilla chips.

* These amounts can vary depending on what can and jar sizes your grocery store has available. The last few times I’ve shopped for ingredients I have used varying amounts. Try to stay withing a few ounces of what I’ve suggested and it will turn out great! A note on the corn – it really adds some sweetness to the chili. We use a lot because we have kids and it helps cut the heat for them. Use less to start, you can always more later!

  1. Your Green Chicken Chili sounds like a winner on a cold, wintry day! We only had ice here in the south and I can’t imagine 31″ of snow! Wow!

  2. Oh this looks delicious, I love these types of dishes when we are having cooler weather. Must try to make this!

  3. I’ve never had anything but a tradition red beef chili but you made that look so good I might just have to try it this week. Since my husband is on a soft foods diet he can’t complain about anything I’ll be cooking since he can’t eat it anyways.

  4. This sounds like an awesome recipe. I love a good chili dinner in the winter and this would be super healthy.

  5. This looks so good! Perfect for a chilly winter afternoon!

  6. Oh yum! One of my favorite chilis/soups is white chicken chili. This recipe sounds like it would be as good if not better! Perfect comfort food

  7. Yum this looks super delicious. It sort of reminds me of a chili corn chowder. I’ll have to try it soon!

    This sounds like an interesting but delicious chili that I am going to have to try making. I have never made chicken chili with chicken stock before. Any chili is good during the winter when it is cold outside.

  11. This looks and sounds yummy. This is perfect on a cold day like this.

  12. Yum. Now this looks like a chili I would enjoy.I will have to give it a try! My husband will for sure be a big fan too!

  13. My husband would like this. I like classic chili and cant eat corn, but he would love the peppers in it. Chili is great for these chili nights we are having in SC. Thanks so much for sharing.

  14. This looks like a really tasty winter dish. The hubs was looking for new ways to do chili so I might show this to him :)

  15. I could eat different types of chili everyday for the rest of my life. Seriously, this recipe looks delicious and I know Spencer would try it (He’s 7) and I know my 11 year old wouldn’t try it because he won’t eat anything. ;)


  16. This sounds yummily delicious! I love making a good soup, and it’s so easy for dinner.

  17. Your green chicken chili looks SO good!! I haven’t made chili in a while so can’t wait to try your recipe this weekend :)

  18. Green chicken and chili sounds delicious. I love a warm soup this time of year, it’s practically all we eat. I will have to give this one a whirl.

  19. Yumm… This looks delicious!! I will try this recipe in my kitchen too!!
