Keto White Chicken Chili

Keto White Chicken Chili
Servings: 4

  • 1 lb chicken
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 4.5oz can chopped green chiles
  • 1 diced jalapeno
  • 1 diced green pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne (optional)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
I adapted the cooking method on this recipe quite a bit, but here is what I did. In a soup pot, I browned the chicken that I had cut into small pieces - I added salt & pepper, oregano, and the cumin to the chicken before browning. Once the chicken was cooked, I removed it and set it aside. In the same pot, I put in the butter, onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, and green chilies and cooked them for a couple of minutes until they started to become translucent. I added the garlic close to the end of cooking the vegetables and then put the chicken back in the pot. I added in the chicken stock, and let the soup simmer for a few minutes. In a small bowl, add your cream cheese and put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds - you should be able to stir it when it is at the correct temp - then mix in the whipping cream with the cream cheese. Stirring the whole time mix the cream cheese/cream mixture into the soup and let it continue to simmer for another 15 minutes before serving. 

You can top it with any of your favorite keto friendly toppings: pepper jack cheese, cheddar cheese, sour cream, or cilantro.
