  • 6 cups chicken stock or broth we used low sodium
  • 1 16 ounce jar of Salsa Verde I used La Victoria Mild
  • 3 cups cooked rotisserie chicken, cubed or shredded
  • 2 15 ounce cans northern white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels or frozen thawed
  • 2 teaspoons cumin cumin brands have a large range of intensity, you may need to add more
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 avocado, cubed


  1. Add all ingredients except avocado to large dutch oven or soup pot and bring to a simmer.

  2. Taste for seasoning.  More cumin?  Salt?  Pepper?  I find cumin varies greatly from brand to brand so don't be surprised if you have to add several more teaspoons!

  3. Garnish with sliced avocado and cilantro if desired.  A dollop of sour cream would be yummy too!

Tips for this 20 Minute White Chicken Chili:

  1. You can find Salsa Verde right next to the other jarred salsas in the Mexican aisle of your grocer.  There are various degrees of heat but we went with mild to make it family friendly.  
  2. Want more heat?  Add some chopped jalapeño or a big pinch of chili flakes.
  3. Cilantro is GREAT in it as is some Mexican Crema on top. Note that the Crema will increase the calories, but it is delicious!
