Chicken Chili Verde


  • 2 15-ounce cans no-salt-added pinto beans, rinsed, divided
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onion (1 medium)
  • 2 cups chopped poblano peppers (2 large)
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
  • 4 cups unsalted chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups prepared salsa Verde
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels (about 12 ounces)
  • 2 cups chopped spinach (about 2 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream


  1. Mash 1 cup beans in a small bowl with a whisk or potato masher.
  2. Heat oil in a large heavy pot over high heat. Add chicken; cook until browned, turning occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes. Add onion, poblanos and garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent and tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining whole beans, the mashed beans, stock, salsa and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Stir in corn, spinach and cilantro. Cook until the spinach is wilted, about 1 minute. Serve topped with sour cream.
