Joltin' Django's White Bean Chicken Chili

White bean chicken chili is becoming one of my specialties. I made a pot last night ... and here's how I did it:

Joltin' Django's White Bean Chicken Chili


1 lb navy beans
1 large white onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded & diced
6 cups cooked chicken, diced
1 16 ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste


Soak beans for 6-8 hours. Drain and rinse with cold water. Place beans, onions, garlic, peppers, salt and pepper in a stock pot and cover with water. Simmer for 2 hours, stirring frequently (add water when needed to keep beans covered).

Add chicken, spices, and tomatoes and simmer for 20-25 minutes.

Garnish with sour cream, fresh chopped cilantro, and cornbread.

Recommended hot sauce for this dish: Valentina Extra Hot Salsa Picante.

It's been a while since I've been to O'Chucks. Do they really have a white bean soup on the menu?
