Green Chile White Bean Chicken Chili is one of my favorite quick and easy gluten free dinners. It is savory with just enough roasted green chile to give it a little kick. Nothing hits the spot more on a cool day than a steaming hearty bowl of white bean chicken chili.

I have spent most of my life in the sunny land of enchantment. AKA, New Mexico, the land of chile. Our state question is “Red or Green?” Red or green chile, that is. We put it on everything around here. And I mean everything. I love the stuff!

Every fall you can smell green chile roasting all over town. Most of the grocery stores will fire roast green chile for you in their parking lot. They have these big rotating mesh metal cylinders that roast green chile fresh for you. The smell of roasting green chile is one of my favorite things, second only to gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and pumpkin spice lattes. And all of my other favorite gluten free pumpkin recipes.

One reason that I LOVE this green chile white bean chicken chili recipe is that it is so easy to make! This time I started off by also sauteing some chopped onion and garlic. If you are in a rush you can skip that and use some onion powder and garlic powder instead.  I always have some canned white beans in my pantry, so all I have to do is open a few cans, dice up some leftover chicken, and stir in some green chile and chicken broth. Bring the chili up to a simmer to let all the flavors bubble together and get yummy. I love to finish it off with a swirl of half & half or cream to give that extra creamy touch.

A steaming hot bowl of green chile white chili is only made better when you have a big wedge of gluten free honey cornbread or some easy gluten free biscuits to go along with it.

Top off your bowl with some diced avocado and a dollop of sour cream or greek yogurt to cool things down a bit and you have the perfect spicy warm bowl.

      Thanks Michelle! If you ever are in town, I’ll take you to try some good chile. Denver might have some OKAY chile, we’ll have to look. 🙂

      Agreed, cornbread is a must. I love hatch green chile. Most of the green chile here is from hatch, I think. It is all from New Mexico though. 🙂

    I have a wonderful aunt in New Mexico who I visited frequently growing up. I have very fond memories of that state and the fire roasted green chiles were definitely a part of that! She even delivered some to us a few times when coming to visit. Our family loves the taste of green chiles and we add them to quite a bit at our house, too. Can’t wait to try your recipe!

    This looks sooo good! And, pretty adaptable to make it vegetarian. Definitely going to try it this week while I try to eat down our fridge and freezer in preparation for Thanksgiving!

      Thanks Sara! I make it often without chicken, it is super tasty. I hope you and your cute family enjoy it!

      Feel free to jazz it up and season it how you like. I often add cumin and/or chili powder when I make white bean chili, but this time I wanted to let the green chile shine!
