It’s easy, it’s a hot dish, and anything tastes good after a cold day on the water.

(Serves 8-10)


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts (chopped)
  • 3 cans great northern beans (14.5oz each)
  • 2 cans chicken broth (14oz each)
  • 1 can chopped green chilis (4oz)
  • 1 cup shredded Pepperjack cheese
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 yellow onion
  • Some garlic, some olive oil, and whatever is in your spice kit!

Directions, sort of

  • In a dutch oven or large pot on medium heat, cook chicken and onion until lightly browned. Add garlic, spices, green chilis and broth. Bring to boil, then simmer.
  • Mash 1 can of beans and add it to the mix. Stir it up, throw in the other 2 cans of beans, and let the whole dish sit on low heat for 20-30 minutes.
  • Serve with lots of cheese & diced jalapeno and enjoy!

Bonus Tricks

  • Add bouillon cubes or your own homemade bone broth for a lil’ extra flavor/texture.
  • Make dutch oven cornbread (store-bought or home recipe.) Toss in some green chilis and cheddar cheese and you might convince your pals you know how to cook!
