Amazing Chicken Chil

Theresa AuCoin
My daughter likes to call this a “stewp” - a cross between a stew and a soup! It’s always a big hit with family and friends. You may want to double the recipe to have extra to freeze for easy future meals!

  • Dutch Oven


  • 2 14.5 oz cans White Beans Rinsed
  • 3-4 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Large Onion chopped
  • 6 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 red, yellow or orange Bell Pepper chopped
  • Himalayan Salt to taste
  • White Pepper to taste
  • 1.5 tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 can Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 1 Rotisserie Chicken Skin removed and meat shredded
  • Sour Cream optional
  • Tortilla Chips optional


  • Drain and rinse the canned white beans and then take half of them and mash them with a potato masher.
  • In your large Dutch oven add the olive oil and heat to medium high heat. Add the onion, garlic, and peppers to sauté until soft, usually about 5 minutes. Season to taste with Himalayan salt & white pepper. Add in the cumin, coriander, chili powder and Hoisen sauce. Continue to sauté about 5 minutes to allow the seasonings to infuse into the veggies.
  • Add the chicken broth, tomato sauce, white wine, and lime juice. Add all the beans, smashed and whole. Bring to a simmer and simmer for at least 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Stir in the shredded chicken and cilantro and continue simmering and stirring for at least 15 more minutes. Serve now or turn down to very low to continue infusing the seasonings into all the components.
  • Serve up your healthy “stewp” offering optional dollops of sour cream and crushed tortilla chips. I hope you made enough, because this is one dish your family and friends will likely want second helpings of! ENJOY!
