Green Enchilada White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili is one of those dishes that just about anyone can enjoy! With only a few essential ingredients, this is one of the easiest meals to make on a busy weeknight. Chicken, stock, chiles, and spices are basically all you need for a spicy bowl of Green Enchilada White Chicken Chili. We like to add extra beans in order to make the dish hearty enough to fill up everyone at the table. It’s not necessary to use three different kinds of beans, but it’s not nearly as fun either! Oversized Butter Beans combined with creamy Cannellini and Navy Beans are the perfect combination to add both bulk and fiber to the dish. A last minute addition of sour cream adds a touch of tanginess that just brightens up the dish a little bit. Did we mention that this tastes great served with tortilla chips as well? YUM! Eat more chili stuff and stay fabulous!

Butternut Squash Soup

  • ½ yellow onion diced
  • 1 butternut squash peeled, seeded, & diced
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ½ cup sour cream

Pan Fried Sage Croutons

  • leftover crusty bread cut into 1" cubes
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 fresh sage leaves chopped
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper


To Make the Soup

  • In a large pot, add diced onion, butternut squash, vegetable stock, chili powder, sugar, cumin, black pepper, salt, coriander, nutmeg, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer, covered, for 45 minutes.
  • After cooking, carefully remove the bay leaf from the pot. With an immersion blender*, blend all of the ingredients in the pot until smooth. Stir sour cream into the soup. Season to taste with additional salt as needed.
  • Set soup aside until the croutons have been prepared.

To Make the Pan-Fried Sage Croutons

  • Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the bread cubes, chopped sage, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for approximately 10 minutes until the bread starts to become toasted on the outside. Serve the croutons on top of the soup. Enjoy!


A countertop blender can be used in place of an immersion blender.  However, make sure not to fill the blender more than half full before blending.  The hot contents of the soup will expand slightly while blending.
