This fiesta chicken chili is hearty, tasty, and so comforting on a cold day. Full of flavor, this recipe is sure to become a favorite!
Did you make crackers yet?
No? Okay, so today I have a chili recipe for you, and that’s a good excuse to make crackers!
This is a really easy recipe for fiesta chicken chili. It’s not a white chicken chili, it’s actually tomato based. It’s packed with beans, peppers, chicken, and corn. You can increase the spice if needed, I kept it on the low/medium side, since we have some people in this house who aren’t crazy about hot spicy food!
If you need to substitute a different kind of bean, go for it! You can do a different flavor of canned tomatoes as well, that’s the beauty of chili, you really can’t mess it up.
This fiesta chicken chili is:
- gluten free and dairy free
- full of fiber from lots of beans
- perfect for warming up on a cold day

In a large stockpot, cook the onion and the chicken in the olive oil over medium heat, until the chicken is cooked through.
Add the peppers, spices, and tomatoes, and stir.
Add the rinsed and drained beans, corn, broth, and water, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium low and cook for about 20 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
In a small container with a lid, combine the gluten free flour blend and 3 Tablespoons of water. Shake well. Add to the chili a little bit at a time, stirring constantly to thicken.
Add more spices according to your taste.
