This 20-minute Chicken Poblano Chili includes poblano peppers, white beans, corn, and rotisserie chicken for a tasty and easy weeknight meal.


  • 2 tbsp garlic-infused oil (may sub 2 tbsp olive oil + 2 minced garlic cloves)
  • 180 g (about 2 large or 3 medium) poblano peppers, chopped
  • 170 g (1 cup) frozen or fresh corn (I like this frozen fire-roasted one)
  • 85 g (about 1 cup) green onions, chopped (or 1 cup finely diced white onion)
  • 32 oz (4 cups) chicken broth
  • 3 (15 oz) cans Great Northern Beans (or cannellini), drained and rinsed
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, deboned and shredded (or 2 lbs cooked chicken or turkey, shredded/diced)
  • optional toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, avocado, cilantro, green onions, tortilla chips


  1. In a large soup pot or dutch oven, heat the garlic oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the poblano peppers, corn, and green onions and cook, stirring often with a wooden spoon or spatula until slightly tender, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add chicken broth, white beans, lime zest and juice, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper, stirring to combine. Allow to come to a simmer for about 7-minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add shredded chicken and cook until warmed through. Serve warm with optional toppings, as desired.
