Poblano White Chicken Chili

This triple-pepper chili is loaded with flavor and filling thanks to chunky rotisserie chicken, white beans and creamy coconut milk-and-chicken broth base! Poblano peppers, jalapeños and green chilis combine for mild but delicious heat.

Chili is welcome in all forms in our household.

We love a traditional red chunky chili (like this Veggie-Packed Chicken Chili and Skinny Cowboy Turkey Chili!) and make it often, but sometimes I like switching up the flavor profile.

This triple-pepper, rotisserie chicken and white bean chili is hearty, mildly spicy and the perfect base for ALLLL the topping. Because that (and cornbread) is what eating chili is all about.

Chili is so great because it’s like a soup in how easy it is to make but it’s so filling with protein and fiber that you stay satisfied long after eating!

This particular Poblano White Chicken Chili is:

  • Chunky and full of texture
  • Chili powder and garlic seasoned
  • Slightly spicy
  • Creamy without cream, thanks to coconut milk
  • Filling!!
  • Citrusy
  • Fantastic topped with cheese, avocado slices and crunchy Fritos!

So now that you’re in…

Here’s how you’ll make this Poblano White Chicken Chili:

  1. Sauté onions and peppers
  2. Stir in seasonings and garlic
  3. Add in beans, broth and coconut milk, bringing everything to a boil.
  4. Lower to simmer and add in shredded rotisserie chicken.
  5. Let cook for 10+ minutes then serve in bowls, topping with all the chili fixings!

Happy Chili Season!!
