Defining “White Chicken Chili”
Here’s the thing about White Chicken Chili — it’s one of those nebulous, decidedly delicious dishes that’s hard to lock down because everyone has a recipe that’s just a little bit different. Recipes can range from easy to difficult, long to short, and everything in between. If you try searching “easiest White Chicken Chili,” you’ll get scores of results; finding a recipe isn’t difficult, but sifting through them all for a shining star certainly is.
Thankfully, there are a few ingredients everyone seems to agree upon when it comes to the dish. Chicken is the obvious one, of course, but there are a few more: stock, garlic, onion, beans. That’s about as specific as we can get.
The rest of the ingredients rely heavily on availability and your preferences. For example: do you want added flavor and a little heat? Green chilies are a must. What about a dash of acidity? Be sure to have a few lime wedges at the ready. For a touch of sweetness, corn. Are you pro-cream, or more interested in a soup-like consistency? Not hot enough? Have some hot sauce on hand.
Don’t even get us started on the myriad choices for seasonings (cumin, coriander, oregano, bay leaves, thyme…).
All of that choice can cripple the best recipes. Not to mention, any of them also require a well-stocked cabinet. We say no more. Instead, rock this family-friendly chili with ease — we got you there:
