Hey there! White Chicken Chili is perfect for cold days. I just made this for my daughter’s graduation from college and it was a crowd-pleaser! It’s super easy to make in your Instant Pot or Crockpot!
What Do I Need To Make This?
1 Small Yellow Onion, diced
1 TBS Olive Oil
2 cloves of Garlic, finely minced
(2) 14.5 oz cans of Chicken Broth
(1) 7 oz can of Diced Green Chiles
1 1/2 TSP Cumin
1/2 TSP Sweet & Smokey Paprika
1/2 TSP Fresh Cilantro
1/4 TSP Cayenne Pepper
1/2 TSP Dried Oregano
Salt & Pepper to taste
(1) 8oz package of Cream Cheese cut into small cubes
1 1/4 c of fresh Corn or frozen corn
(2) 15 oz cans of Cannellini Beans
2 1/2 c of Shredded Cooked Rotisserie Chicken
1 TBS Lime Juice
Here’s How To Make This Recipe:
Put your Olive Oil, Onions, and Garlic in your Instant Pot on “Saute” mode or ~5 minutes until the onion and garlic start to turn soft.
Add Chicken Broth, Green Chilies, Cumin, Paprika, Oregano, Cayenne Pepper, Salt, and Pepper.
Turn the Instant Pot off of saute mode.
Put the lid on and start it on Manual Pressure but turn the time down to 10 minutes.
Once it is finished, release the pressure carefully. Drain and rinse Beans in a fine mesh strainer or colander.
Measure out one cup of the beans and set aside. Puree the one cup of beans and a little broth from the soup until nearly smooth.
This will thicken the soup.
Add it to the instant pot with the non pureed beans.
Add Cream Cheese, Chicken, Corn, and Lime Juice to the instant pot.
You can serve the soup now, or close the lid and keep on the warm setting until you are ready to eat!
Serve with toppings of your choice.

This recipe calls for cream cheese but you can substitute it for dairy free cream cheese if you need to. Top it with your favorite shredded dairy free cheese as well!
Can I make this White Chicken Chili with frozen chicken?
Yes, just increase the time you cook it in the instant pot but I don't recommend it. I think the flavor is better with rotisserie chicken and highly recommend it!
