Dutch Oven White Chicken Chili


This chili is the ultimate winter comfort food recipe. I saw a recipe similar to this on Good Morning America. I love using my Fontignac enamel Dutch oven and don't see enough recipes that call for its use on here. I switched a few things up. The original recipe can be found on GMA's website. Serve with Monterey Jack cheese and crushed tortilla chips or cornbread.

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • ½ cup beer

  • 1 ½ pounds cooked chicken breast, cubed

  • 3 (15 ounce) cans great Northern beans, drained

  • 3 cups chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Heat oil in a 5-quart cast iron Dutch oven over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour in beer and allow to cook off.

  2. Stir in chicken, beans, chicken broth, cilantro, cumin, salt, and cayenne. Simmer for 30 minutes. Ladle chili into bowls.

Cook's Notes:

You can use 4 to 6 smaller peppers instead of 1 bell pepper.

You can use 2 teaspoons dried cilantro instead of fresh.
