White Chicken Chili

October 25, 2012 - Author: Amy - 22 Comments

D has been out of town all week for work.  I don’t generally announce that stuff so as not to entice would-be robbers.  But he’s back today so don’t be getting any big ideas.  On a somewhat related note, the house alarm went off this morning while I was getting ready and it scared the bejezus out of me.  Turns out I sat my blow dryer down a little hard and the system registered it as a glass break.


I tell you this mostly just to tell you that since the cat was away, the mice were really lazy and I didn’t feel like cooking.  Enter giant pot of white chicken chili.

What you’ll need:

2 tsp. olive oil

32 oz. chicken broth

1 medium onion

2 cups cooked chicken

2 cans whatever kind of beans you fancy.  (I usually use navy, or in this case kidney)

1 can corn

1 (8 oz) can green chilis

1 Lime

1/2 tsp. Cumin

Toppings can include chopped green onion, pepperjack cheese, cilantro, sour cream, etc.

Sautee the onion in the olive oil until translucent.

Now here comes the tricky part… Throw everything else into the pot.  ;)

Let it simmer for about 30 minutes, then add your delicious toppings and devour.

Since this meal wasn’t exactly an involved process, and Junior was happily eating little kid ravioli,

I tinkered around in the half bath.  Odd as it is to say, this is one of my favorite spaces in the house.  The vanity is an old carpenters chest.  The sink is a $7 bucket from Hobby Lobby.  And the walls are trimmed in cedar.  I just love it.

I like the light we have in there, but I added a lamp and it just gives off such a warm glow every time I walk by.  I left Junior’s framed weeds and added a candle and wooden punkin, for just a touch of fall.  This is all framed by my favorite door in the house.

To me, this little space epitomizes the feel we wanted for the whole house, and I love the way it turned out.

Hope you try and like the chili!

Sorry for talking about food and bathrooms in the same post.

    I know I have fought you on the white chicken chili thing, but I think I might just have to try it after you gush so much about it. What kind of ravioli is he eating that it’s so pale?!

    I love the half bath space too! Tres cute! You has eye for good decor!

    I dunno. Little kid cheese ravioli that is non messy… He liked it!

  3. Powder rooms and chili. Two of my favorites. Just hadn’t thought of them together. ;)

  4. I like your barn door. I just did a post on them yesterday (I think). If I had known about yours, I would have featured you! :(

    It’s ok on the food/bathroom. I didn’t lose my appetite for lunch! lol

    Your boy is cute.

  5. Is that a slidey door?!

  6. Holy cow that bathroom is awesome. I love the sink and chest. It fits your home so completely.

    I love chicken chili… i might have to make this one night next week.

  7. Love that bathroom!

  8. The chili looks so good! It makes me wish I could cook.

    Love the 1/2 bath and the barn door.

    Seeing your bathroom barn door always makes me wish we would have put one on the pantry.

    That chili looks amazing. Now if only I could find a way to trick the husband into eating beans…

  10. That chili looks delicious! It’s actually getting cold here (yessss!) so I may have to make some over the weekend :)

  11. I absolutely love that bathroom too…it’s such a warm and homey space. I’m so happy you included it in this post…even if it started out about chili.

    PS-LOVE that lamp in there…such a nice touch.

  12. Oh yum! That chili looks absolutely amazing!

    And your bathroom is gorgeous!

  13. I just had chicken chili for the first time a few weeks ago, and oh my word, it was so yummy. And I love meals that you can eat as leftovers for a week. Less cooking for the win!

    Freezing stuff for the win!

  15. I guess food and bathrooms do really go together …. but I truly adore the look and feel in your half bath — inside AND out!



  16. I am definitely going to try that Chili, and I LOVE your bathroom. So much that I made my husband come look at it!

  17. That door is KILLER!! I LOVE it!

  18. I’ll be pinning this one for our chilly days coming next week (no pun intended!!). Love the half bath… perfect cozy space!

  19. Yeah, you broke a golden rule of our house – no food in the bathroom – but then technically that didn’t happen here.

    Never had a white chili but will pin this recipe to try it. Have a good weekend with D. :-)

  20. I love that bathroom too! The lamp is a nice warm touch and that door is fab.
    I would have had a serious heart attack if the alarm accidentally went off in our house! We had to have the alarm company come over and adjust the sensitivity for a similar issue at our house.

  21. My favorite room and favorite door and favorite chili too.


  22. How have I never seen this room before? Is this the first time you showed it? It is stunning. Like, spectacular. I LOVE it.
