White Chicken Chili Recipe Is The Best

This is probably the most requested recipe I have. If you like White Chili, want it fast and want a recipe under 5 ingredients, then you need to try this. I've never tasted anything better in any restaurant. If I see it on a menu, I try it just to make sure but have never found anything that competes.

You'll need:

One rotisserie chicken

32 oz. jar of Randall Great Northern Beans

16 oz. jar Mild Salsa, any kind

8 oz. Kraft chunk Monterey Jack Cheese with Jalapeno Peppers (cut into cubes)

1 tsp Cumin (or to taste)

Drain the top liquid off the beans and dump into a large pot, add salsa, cheese cubes and cumin. Mix and start heating on medium low while you are cutting up the rotisserie chicken into chunks (no skin please). Add chicken, turn heat to low and cook until all the cheese is melted, stirring often until the chili is smooth. How quick and easy is that?

Serve with Frito Scoops as a dip, regular Fritos or tortilla chips.

I've had this recipe for about 15 years and here's what I've learned. The original recipe called for cooked, cubed chicken breast. I changed this to the rotisserie chicken a few years back finding it much faster and cheaper than buying and cooking chicken breast. The best rotisserie chicken in my book is from Costco, only $4.99 for the biggest bird you will find. I find the mild salsa to be the best in this recipe, if you like your chili HOT then please feel free to up the ante. I have no favorite salsa and will always buy what's on sale, store brand is sometimes the best. I find the Kraft Monterey Jack Cheese with Peppers to be the most consistent in flavor. My secret is to use 2 packages and you will get an even smoother chili. This is the way we prefer it now even though the original recipe only called for one package of cheese. Wait until it goes on sale which always means White Chili time at our house. Cumin: this is to individual taste. Some people do not care for it and leave it out. Start out with a little as you can always increase but you can never remove!

This recipe is great for doubling if you need it for a get together. Bring it to a party in a crock pot and watch it disappear! Leftovers also freeze extremely well for another day. Enjoy!
