White Chicken Chili Casserole


This easy, one-skillet casserole is packed with heat thanks to two kinds of peppers, poblanos and jalapeño. If you want to increase the spice level, leave the seeds in the jalapeño. Finish with your favorite toppings like Cheddar, cilantro and crumbled tortilla chips.

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup chopped onion, plus more for garnish

  • 2 poblano peppers, seeded and chopped

  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped

  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans no-salt-added white beans, rinsed

  • ¼ cup sour cream

  • Shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (optional)

  • Crumbled tortilla chips (optional)

  • Chopped fresh cilantro (optional)


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and poblanos; cook, stirring, until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Add jalapeño and garlic; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add chicken, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until the chicken is opaque on all sides, about 3 more minutes. Stir in broth and beans and bring to a lively simmer. Reduce heat to maintain the simmer and cook, stirring a few times, until the chicken is cooked through and the broth has reduced, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Serve topped with cheese, tortilla chips, onion and/or cilantro, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
