This white bean chili is just perfect! It's absolutely loaded with flavor, easy to make, and super filling.
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat in a pan. Add the chicken and saute for about 3-5 minutes then remove and set aside.
In the pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and jalapeno. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
Rough chop 1/2 cup of cilantro and add to onion, garlic and jalapeno mixture. Saute for a few seconds then add all to a large pot.
Add all seasonings (cumin, cayenne, oregano, paprika, black pepper, salt). Reduce heat to medium and let simmer.
Add the beans and chicken stock.
Let the chili simmer at least another 30 minutes, but the longer, the better. Use a potato masher to mash the beans- a few mashes should do the trick. You should do this before adding the chicken if the beans are nice and soft.
Add in the chicken, corn and chiles.
