Smoked White Bean Chicken Chili

Smoked White Chicken Chili is going to be a new fall favorite of mine! I have always loved White Chicken Chili in the crockpot. Let me say the smoker adds a whole new level of flavor!  Everyone who tried this loved it!

Now smoking foods is nothing new but I have fallen in love with using my Pit Boss Pro 1100 as more of a convection oven. I smoked this on Pit Boss Pro 1100 from Lowes, if you don’t have Lowes, Walmart and Amazon carry other Pit Boss options or the Pit Boss website.  Food is even better if I could use leftover smoked meat in the dish.

This can be made on any pellet grill, charcoal smoker, or gas smoker. If you make this on a Traeger, then it is Traeger white chicken chili. It really doesn’t make a difference either way the smoke flavor is amazing.

how to make smoked chili

Start out with Smoked Chicken Breast, you can see how I make mine -> hereAny type of shredded chicken will work but the smoked chicken will add more flavor to the chili as well

If you need more details, see my Shredded Smoked Chicken post. (see it ->here)

Start up your smoker to get the smoke rolling! I set my Pit Boss Pro 1100 to a smoke setting of P7 for the smoke setting.  I also closed the chimney stack to allow more smoke to stay in the smoker.  This time around I used mesquite pellets to smoke my chili.

Money and time-saving tips from the old lady. If you order pellets online from Walmart and spend $35, they will drop them off at your door for free!! Their everyday price on pit boss pellets is amazing, plus the expert grill brand has a great price. (see them ->here)

Oil Inside the Pan Of Dutch Oven

If you use a preseasoned cast iron Dutch oven, wipe it down with oil to help make sure that it is ready to cook without having stuff stick. I use an old cast iron Dutch oven the old lady picked up for $5, which has worked amazingly well!

An Enameled Cast Iron would work, but the smoke would stain the enamel of the Dutch oven.  Also, be sure to know How To Season Your Cast Iron. (You can see my post-> here!

 Using a strainer, strain out your white beans and your peppers. (I skipped the ones that had any flavored sauce so I just put those straight in the dutch oven. 

Shred your chicken and place it in the dutch oven.  

Smoked White Chicken Chli Ingredients in dutch oven before broth

Cut up your onion, I normally use red onion but used a sweet onion due to the fact I couldn’t find any near me.  

Season with your cumin, salt, pepper, and seasonings to taste. 

Pour in broth and water until it is well covered and give it a good stir to mix everything together.

Once your smoker is ready take it out to your smoker and allow it to smoke.  You will not be using the lid or cover at all for this recipe. 

I allowed mine to smoke on the smoke setting for a half hour, then turned it up to 225. 

I cooked for another 4 hours at 225 degrees.

Remove and serve your smoked chicken chili when ready!! 

* You can thicken up the chili if you want with 1/4 cup of corn starch and 1 cup of hot water in a small bowl and then mix into the chili a half-hour before serving.  If you do not want cornstarch and milk, you can use a roux to thicken the chowder. Use equal parts butter and flour. Next, melt the butter in a saucepan or microwave. *
