Santa Fe Chili is a delicious white chicken chili. It is a more mild chili, but you could make it as hot as you’d like by adding jalapenos.
I have mentioned in the past that I worked at a guest ranch in Colorado. In the winter time we had a snowmobile tour service. We would take a group out snowmobiling in the morning and they would come back and have lunch. A second group would come for lunch and then go out snowmobiling in the afternoon. One of the lunches we would serve was Santa Fe Chili. I love the different flavor of this white chicken chili. It’s not a spicy chili, but you could make it spicy if you would like.
- ½ cup butter
- ¼ cup chicken base
- 1 ½ cups flour
- 6 cups to 8 water
- 1 #10 can white northern beans
- 4 sm. cans diced green chilies
- 8 chicken breasts cooked & cut into bite size pieces
- 2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp white pepper
- In large sauce pan melt butter and chicken base.
- Add flour to make roux. Add water and stir till smooth.

If you would like the chili to be spicier, add canned chopped jalapenos to your desired spiciness.
