One Pot Skinny White Chicken Chili
We LOVE a good white chicken chili over here, and making it extra light and healthy didn't change it for anyone! All of my kids even devour this. And skipping the beans just allows me to use the carbs where I value them more! Feel free to add them in if you love beans!

Heat a large pot over medium, high heat, spray with cooking spray.
Add peppers, onions, and zucchini, sprinkle with a hefty pinch of kosher salt and cook for 5-7 minutes till soft.
Sir in garlic and cumin and sauté for a few more minutes, then add green chilis, green enchilada sauce, chicken stock and chicken. Sprinkle a little kosher salt on your chicken. Turn to low and simmer for about 15 minutes or until you're ready to eat.
Stir in greek yogurt cream cheese and corn and simmer for five more minutes just until corn is no longer frozen. All done!
Top individual bowls with cheese, sour cream (we use low or non-fat), avocado, fresh cilantro, a squeeze of lime, and tortilla chips or fritos!
*Macros: Of course, there always might be variation when you make it yourself, if you use different brands, or if you cook something much longer and more moisture evaporates... but for instance, once I make something once, I'll log those same macros every time I make it, even if there are slight variations. In my opinion, those variances are going to be so small, especially when dealing with lower calorie items over all. Notice I'll let you log your own chips and cheese. Ha!
- I love to buy the big package of rotisserie chicken breast from Costco for soups in the winter. I'm not a huge fan of the texture for salads or much else, but as long as you take a minute to pick through it and remove any gross parts, then chop and shred the good stuff into manageable sized pieces, it's PERFECT for soups! And makes it such a breeze.
- For macro-counters: Search "Lillie Eats and Tells Skinny Creamy White Chicken Chili" in My Fitness Pal to log however many grams of chili you want!
- Just reminding you this is a nice BIG portion! Not just a cup like most soup "portions". This is actually a nice big bowl that I would eat for dinner. And the macros are so low, they leave room for toppings and a side salad if you'd like!
