We have an awesome network of professional food bloggers who develop amazing recipes for Randall Beans. They take beautiful photographs of their creations and inspire the rest of us to be creative too.

We frequently hear from readers who try out the recipes and send us notes about how they turned out. Sometimes, they are so inspired they send us their version of the recipe. Lorraine sent us her version of white chicken chili it features scallions along with the onions and mild canned green chili for a milder sweeter taste.

As football season approaches, the white chili is a rich and hearty alternative to traditional red bean chili.The dish features our popular Great Northern beans.


Southwest White Chicken Chili


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped scallion ( These are a little sweeter than onions)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 2 cans of mild minced peppers (4 oz each)

  4. Stir in the salt, jalapeno peppers, chicken broth, and Randall Beans. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes. 
  5. Lower the heat and add in the cheese, stirring until melted.
  6. Return chicken to the pot and cook for 5 minutes.
