How to thicken this White Chicken Chili recipe

Sometimes this recipe can turn out a little more watery than desired. There is a quick fix to thicken it up in a jiffy! Simply make up a cornstarch slurry of 1Tbsp cornstarch stirred thoroughly into cold water until lumps disappear. Stir slurry into chili and allow to simmer another 7-10 minutes until thickened. If you do not have cornstarch, you may use flour, however take care to make sure it is completely dissolved in water before adding.

Storing White Chicken Chili

If you’re like me, you’re going to want to enjoy this chili for leftovers! I like to make a large batch and freeze some for a quick lunch or dinner later. Simply ladle into an airtight container and pop in freezer. You can store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days (if it lasts that long).
