Last Minute Dinner Idea! {Quick & Easy “Weeknight” Chili}


5-ingredient green chicken chili

I call this green chicken chili recipe “weeknight” chili, because it’s one of my simplest go-to recipes for busy days! With just 5 basic ingredients and almost no prep-work, you don’t need to be a master chef to nail this one on the first try.



  • 1 medium onion (white or yellow), peeled and diced
  • 2 cans  (28 ounces each) Las Palmas brand green chili enchilada sauce
  • 2 cans  (15 ounces each) black beans, drained
  • 1 bag (32 ounces) frozen corn
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (can also use a rotisserie chicken)


  • lime
  • cilantro
  • shredded cheese
  • sour cream


  1. In a large stockpot, add 2 Tbsp olive oil and diced onion. Cook until onion is translucent, 3-5 minutes or so.
  2. Add sauce, beans, corn, and shredded chicken. Simmer for 25 minutes.
  3. Garnish with toppings and serve with cornbread or tortilla chips. Enjoy!
