Quick White Chicken Chili

Quick White Chicken Chili

This is the White Chicken Chili that we had with the amazing Pumpkin Cornbread I posted yesterday.  I have a confession, this is really a cheater recipe.  It uses the McCormick White Chicken Chili seasoning mix.  I don’t know how you feel about seasoning mixes, but I happed to really like them.  I think they save a ton of time and money.  I like not having to measure out tons of spices and not having to buy spices I may  only use for a few recipes.

Now, cheater recipe or not, this was the best White Chicken Chili that I have ever had.  It was super quick and easy to make after work.  It requires no prep time.  You just brown the chicken, dump the rest of the ingredients and simmer.  Done!!  We  gobbled this up!  There was only one problem with the recipe – there wasn’t enough leftover to eat the next day.  I will double the recipe next time and eat it with some pumpkin cornbread for lunch the next day!

  1. We just had this for dinner tonight. Second time this week! I added a can of white kidney beans in addition to the other beans. It was so good!

  2. Generally I like handling my own seasonings but McCormicks has put out some great products the past two years, including their whole GrillMates line.

  3. Love those cheater recipes! Don't think I have ever seen that seasoning, but it's sure nice to take a shortcut once in awhile. Why not? Sure looks divine.

  4. I wanted to make this for dinner tomorrow night. I went to the store for the ingredients. Guess what I couldn't find! The seasoning mix! I'm going to look at two more grocery stores. If I can't find it, you might have to send a packet of that stuff in the mail to me. I must have this chili!

  5. We do the same thing…it's okay to cheat once in a while, right? I add diced potatoes, great northern beans and mexicorn. It's soo good!

  6. I'm totally okay with shortcuts! I work and have three children STARVING come dinner time so, thank goodness for delicious recipes with shortcuts.

  7. Looks quick and easy. I use purchased BBQ rub and other seasoning mixes all the time. If someone has already invented something good, I use it unless I have something better.
