White Bean Chicken Chili with Jalapeno Peppers

Plenty of jalapeno peppers round out the spiciness of this hearty chili dish. I like to use extra spicy chili powder, but there are many available to you. Just don't forget the jalapenos!

White Bean Chicken Chili with Jalapeno Peppers


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2-4 jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large chicken breasts, chopped into chunks
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cans Great Northern Beans (15 ounces each)
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes (15 ounces)
  • 1 cup frozen corn

  • 4 tablespoons chili powder
