I love making this white chicken chili when the weather starts to get colder, and this week it’s finally starting to go in that direction. It’s dairy free, versatile, easy, and best of all my toddler asks for seconds, or “more, more please!”

 

What You Need: 

1 Onion, diced

2-3 Garlic Cloves, minced

1 Jalapeno, minced (leave in ribs/seeds for extra heat!)

1/2 tbsp Olive Oil

48oz Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed

1 pound Chicken, cooked and shredded (could also use meat from a rotisserie chicken)

48oz Chicken Broth (about a box and a half)

1 tbsp Cumin

1/2 tsp White Pepper

1 1/2 tbsp Chili Powder

7oz Frozen Corn (half the bag)

1/2 cup Coconut Milk

 

Optional Toppings:

Salsa

Tortilla Chips, crushed up

Cilantro

Avocado

Sour Cream

Shredded Cheese

 

Heat a large pot that you will cook the soup in, over medium/high heat, and add your olive oil. Next add your onion, jalapeno, and garlic and cook for about 3 – 5 minutes. I like to add some salt and pepper here to this mixture.

Next add in your cooked chicken and beans and cook for another couple of minutes. Then pour in your chicken broth, followed by your frozen corn.

Finally add the cumin, white pepper, chili powder, and a little more salt. Stir well and let come to a simmer. Turn down heat and cook for about 15 minutes. Then stir in the coconut milk and continue to cook on low for 5 more minutes. Salt & Pepper to taste.

Have fun with different toppings!

Need extra carbs? This is great over rice or noodles!

Need more protein? Add more chicken or stir in some collagen peptides, they are tasteless and dissolve completely!

HOW TO ADD THIS INTO MY FITNESS PAL

When people are tracking macros, or even just tracking what they are eating, I think a recipe like this is sort of a turn off, because they aren’t sure how to log it, or add the recipe. The good news is, there is a way to do it, so you don’t have to make simple meals (chicken, broccoli, rice) that are very easy to track every. single. day.

Lets take this step by step so you can add this recipe to your MPF app, plus any others that you love to make. (Once you add them, they will always be there, which is the best part!!)

 

Step 1: Weigh your pot, pan, baking dish on your food scale, completely empty, and write down that number. (My pot weighed 60.1oz)

Step 2: Cook your recipe!

Step 3: Now weigh your pot with the completed recipe in it. (My pot of chili now weighs 166.6oz)

Step 4: Open MFP app: MORE — MEALS, RECIPES, & FOODS — select “CREATE A RECIPE” (if your recipe is on a website, wahoo, this is easy, select ADD FROM THE WEB, if not, no big deal, select ENTER INGREDIENTS MANUALLY)

  • FROM THE WEB: Copy and Paste the URL, the website will come up, select “IMPORT RECIPE”…Magic…all your ingredients and amounts are now in your MFP app!
  • ENTER INGREDIENTS MANUALLY:
    • Choose your title (**When naming, I put (1oz) by title to remind me that the serving size will be 1oz…White Chicken Chili (1oz))
      • **Serving: follow this equation: Weight of your full pot – Weight of your empty pot = Servings. (166.6oz – 60.1oz = 106.5oz) So I type in 106 servings. **Please note your serving size for your recipe is 1oz.
      • Next just type out your ingredients and the amounts, (1/2 cup coconut milk) and put each ingredient on it’s own line. When finished hit the arrow at the top right of the page.
  • Now we are in the same place for both FROM THE WEB & ENTER INGREDIENTS MANUALLY. We want to make sure we record the actual brands and ingredients that were imported. If it looks good to go, you are set for this stage.
    • If not, click on the ingredient you want to edit (the nutrition facts will now come up) At the bottom of this page select “SEARCH FOR ALTERNATIVE”
    • Now you can type in the exact brand and search, or even easier, scan the barcode of your ingredient, by selecting the “SCAN” button at the bottom right of the page.
    • Check through all your ingredients, repeating the step above, until they are exactly how you want them. When finished hit the arrow at the top right of the page.
  • You should get this page, and here you can select “SAVE” or if you want to log your recipe at the same time select “SAVE & LOG IT”. 

 

That’s it! You are done and your recipe will live here in your app forever!
