  • 1 tbs. oil with a high smoke point, such as grapeseed
  • 1 medium-sized onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tbs.)
  • 2 jalapeños, seeds removed and diced
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups pulled chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked white beans, such as cannellini
  • 1 1/2 cups corn kernels
  • 1 cup carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • Optional garnishes such as cilantro, lime wedges, sliced jalapeño, tortilla strips, and dairy-free sour cream


  1. Add the tablespoon of oil, onion, and garlic to a large pot over medium-high heat. Sauté until softened, stirring frequently, about three to four minutes.

  2. Add the jalapeño and let cook an additional two minutes.

  3. Add the stock, chicken, beans, corn, carrots, and spices. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to cook at a gently rolling simmer for 25 minutes.

  4. During the last few minutes of the simmering process, melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour so that a smooth paste forms. Stir in the milk a little at a time, melding it with the coconut oil-flour paste to create a creamy sauce. Reduce heat as needed during this process.

  5. Once the creamy sauce has been created, stir it immediately into the larger pot of ingredients. And voilà - your Dairy-Free White Chicken Chili awaits! Serve with your desired garnishes.
