A delicious white bean chili.
Now we all know that Chili is very subjective, especially in different parts of the country. Some like it chunky while others like it soupy. Some don’t want any beans in their Chili while others do. Some want it spicy and other want it mild.
For this year’s Super Bowl party I decided to part ways from my usual beef based Chili and make a Chicken base Chili with white beans. Needless to say, this Chili was a hit with everyone!
Please note that I made this White Bean and Chicken Chili using my Instant Pot. I was running late and the only way I could get the Chili done in time was to use my pressure cooker. This recipe can easily be adapted for stovetop – see my notes below.
Instant Pot Method
Using the saute feature of your Instant Pot, cook onions and garlic in butter until tender. Make a rue by adding flour and seasonings and mixing well.
Stir in chicken broth, beans and chilies. Add chicken and cook on the bean/chili setting for 45 minutes. Let pressure naturally release for 15 minutes, then quick release. Remove top and mix well.. Let sit for about 10 minutes until it thickens.
In a large pot, cook onions and garlic in butter until tender. Make a rue by adding flour and seasonings and mixing well.
Stir in chicken broth, PREPARED beans and chilies. Add chicken and cover. Let cook on medium-low heat for 45 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let sit for about 10 minutes will it thickens.
