  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large green pepper, diced
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 16 oz mild salsa verde (or hot)
  • 2 cans  BUSH’S® White Chili Beans
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar


  1. Place jalapeno over a a high flame on a gas stove and roast until all sides are charred. Place in a plastic baggie and let it steam while you prep and cook the veggies. If you do not have a gas stove, place the jalapeno on a baking sheet and roast under the broiler in the oven. Turn until the pepper is charred on all sides. Place in the plastic baggie and steam.

  2. Heat a large pot over a medium heat. Add olive oil. Add ground chicken. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to break up the chicken. Once the chicken is almost all the way cooked through, add the onion, garlic, green pepper, and salt. Sauté for 3-4 minutes until slightly softened.

  3. Remove the jalapeno from the baggie. Remove stems and seeds. Finely chop.

  4. Add the jalapenos, salsa verde, chicken stock, beans, cumin, and apple cider vinegar. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese, and cilantro
