Green Chicken Chili

This green chicken chili is rich in vitamin C, which can ramp up fat burning during exercise, a Nutrition & Metabolism study found. It’s also a good source of protein thanks to the chicken and avocado.

1⁄2 tsp salt
2 poblano peppers, diced

8 canned tomatillos
2 (15 oz) cans navy beans, drained and rinsed

1 tsp cumin powder
2 cups sliced rotisserie chicken meat
1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt

Juice of 1/2 lime

How to make it 

Heat a heavy- bottomed saucepan over medium heat and add olive oil. Add onion and salt and cook for 3 minutes. Add poblano peppers and garlic and cook for 3 more minutes.


Place chicken broth, tomatillos, 1 can beans, jalapeño, cilantro, and cumin in a blender and blend until nearly smooth. (It should retain some chunky consistency.) Add mixture to sauce- pan and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. Stir in chicken and remaining can of beans and heat through. Add additional broth if chili is too thick.

Blend together sour cream, avocado, lime juice, and a pinch of salt until smooth. Serve chili topped with avocado cream, pumpkin seeds, and additional cilantro.
