Chicken Chilli Chowder, or White Chicken Chilli (a lighter version of Chilli Con Carne), is a heart-warming dish that you can typically find on the ski slopes in the United States. We’ve taken inspiration from this comfort dish where the flavours of the South West are combined with the classic White Chilli ingredients - chicken and white beans, and served with an array of colourful toppings. Add crunch by dipping tortilla chips into the chowder or go for some crusty bread instead.

Our 25 minute recipe

  1. Cook the onions

    Heat a little oil in a large, lidded saucepan over a medium-low heat. Cook the onion for 3 mins, or until soft.

    Add the JALAPEÑO & GARLIC PASTE and mix well.

    Sprinkle in the SOUTHWESTERN SPICES and mix well.

  2. Poach the chicken

    Add the CHOWDER STOCK POT to the pan with 500ml boiling water and gently stir it in.

    Place the chicken into the pan and make sure it's submerged in the stock (see tip). Gently bring it to the boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 8 mins, or until just cooked through.

  3. Add the veg

    Remove the chicken and put on a chopping board to rest.

    Turn the heat up and cook the chowder for 3 mins while you mix 2 tsps of cornflour with 2 tsps of water in a small bowl or glass. Next, pour this into the chowder and continue to let it cook for 2 mins.

    Add the cannellini beans and the sweetcorn and cook for 1 min.

  4. Shred the chicken 

    Turn the heat down to low and stir in the creme fraiche.

    Use two forks to shred the chicken, then return all the chicken to the chowder and cook for 2 more mins.

  5. Serve! 

    Serve the chowder with some (optional) chopped parsley and tomato on top, with tortilla chips on the side.

My husband doesn’t like anything too spicy and isn’t a fan of anything too soupy. But he loved this dish. Said it could be added to the have again list

Used quark instead and added peppers and carrots. Also added fresh chillies and garlic. Very tasty

Kayleigh - 26th June 2020

Mixed reviews from the family... I loved it. I went back for a second helping. My partner liked it, but not enough to finish his portion. My son didn't like it and asked for something else. He said it was 'edible' but wouldn't eat it for a meal.

Megan - 24th June 2020

A easy and light dish. Takes a little more time than a few of the others but it’s worth the extra effort

Andy - 24th June 2020

Unfortunately the southern spice mix pot was empty and therefore had to substitute for a cajun spice mix out of the cupboard. Will contact Simply Cook about the problem but result of DIY recipe was lovely.

Not the best edible but not the best

Amy - 16th June 2020

Not much flavour and extremely watery. I’d suggest only half the quantity of water for this one and probably an extra half amount of all other ingredients.

Allan - 16th June 2020
