Cara's White Chili Chicken

Cara's White Chili Chicken Ingredients:

  • 32 oz chicken stock
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 16 oz jar salsa of choice
  • 2-3 cans cannellini beans (white beans) left undrained
  • 5 cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded into bite-size chunks
  • Black pepper to taste 8 oz pepper jack cheese – grated
  • Optional: sour cream


  1. Combine stock, cumin, garlic, and salsa in a pot.
  2. Heat thoroughly on medium high.
  3. Add chicken, beans, and cheese.

Once the cheese is melted – serve! I like a dollop of sour cream. Can be cooked in a crockpot- add cheese last before serving. I puree the salsa, some say to not scare off kids, but really, it is because I do not like tomatoes and cannot eat the chunks.
