Stay cozy, healthy and satisfied with Creamy, Dreamy White Chicken Chili! This low-carb, grain-free, dairy-free recipe is cooked effortlessly in the Instant Pot or on the stovetop. Plus, there's a secret ingredient that adds creaminess and sneaks in a serving of extra vegetables.
Set the Instant Pot to sauté mode and heat the avocado oil. Add chicken, onion, and minced jalapeño to the pot, and cook until the chicken is lightly browned.
Stir in garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes more. Press cancel to turn off sauté.
Add chicken bone broth, ground cumin, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper to the pot. Close the lid and seal the valve. Set the Instant Pot to pressure-cook on high for 10 minutes.
FOR THE STOVETOP METHOD:
Heat avocado oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chicken, onion, and minced jalapeño and cook until the chicken is lightly browned.
Stir in garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes more. Add chicken bone broth, ground cumin, chili powder, jalapeño, salt, and cayenne pepper, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 20-30 minutes.
FOR BOTH METHODS:
While the chili cooks, steam or microwave the cauliflower until tender. Puree the cooked cauliflower in a blender or food processor until smooth.
When the Instant Pot or stovetop cooking time is finished, carefully open the valve for a quick pressure release (if using the Instant Pot) or remove the pot from the heat (if using the stovetop).
Stir the cauliflower puree into the chili to thicken it. Adjust seasonings to taste, if necessary, and garnish with diced avocado, diced tomato, sliced jalapeño, and chopped cilantro just before serving.
