Paula Deen’s White Bean Chili

Howdy ya’ll. We’re fixin’ to go south of the border da’day with Paula Deen‘s White Bean Chili. Duddin’nat sound good? Alright, I get it…but that’s the best Paula Deen impression I’ve got. My accent may not be southern, but this recipe is. Since she is officially still my Celeb Chef of the month, let’s keep on cookin’ ya’ll.

Recipe: Paula Deen’s White Bean Chili


  • 1 lb. dried Navy Beans
  • 5 c. Chicken Stock
  • 4 TB Butter
  • 1 TB minced Garlic
  • 3/4 c. diced Onion
  • 1 1/2 c. chopped Green Chiles (fresh or canned)
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless Chicken Breast, finely chopped
  • 1 TB ground Cumin
  • 1 TB dried Oregano
  • 1-2 t. ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 t. White Pepper
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 bunch Cilantro leaves, chopped


  1. Rinse beans well, cover with cool water, and soak for 2 hours. Drain. Put the beans in large pot with the chicken stock and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion, and chiles and saute for 5 minutes. Add chile mixture to pot with beans. Add the chicken, cumin, oregano, pepper, white pepper, red pepper flakes, and cilantro. Lower the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for approximately 1 1/2 hours.

Quick Notes

*I used: Amish chicken and almost all organic ingredients. I also make my own chicken stock, in which I use the white meat for the recipe and the dark meat for a topper. Because my stock doesn’t contain salt, I had to add quite a bit of sea salt as well. Since I bought the “wrong” type of peppers, I ended up using 3 cans of green chiles.


*I like this served with blue corn tortilla chips and sour cream. Though, it’s rather “beany” (in my opinion) and think it would be better used poured over enchiladas or tamales.
