Here’s How To Make Creamy White Bean Chili From Scratch

The foolproof way to reduce anti-nutrients and indigestible sugars.

A simple “no soak” way to cook dried white beans in a pressure cooker in a one hour.

Just a few ingredients

  • Dried Organic Navy Beans
  • Water, Vegetable or Chicken Bone Broth
  • Fresh Garlic
  • Sea Salt
  • Avocado Oil

Pressure cook the beans

Rinse your dried navy beans and combine all the ingredients into the Instant Pot.

Press manual on your Instant Pot (high pressure) and set the timer for 30 minutes. 

It can take 15-20 minutes to come to pressure. When its done pressure cooking, then allow the pressure release naturally or quick release after 10-15 minutes.

Once the beans are done cooking, set aside in the cooking liquid until we add them into the chili.

Handy tip: storing cooked beans

Cooked beans can be used immediately or cooled and stored in their cooking liquid.

They will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge or up to 3 months in the freezer.

Make the creamy white bean chili

In a large pot over medium heat, heat the avocado oil. Add the onion, green bell peppers, and poblano peppers and saute for 5 minutes until soft. 

Stir in the garlic and seasonings: cumin, paprika, coriander, chili powder, salt and pepper.

Cook for 3 more minutes, until the garlic is fragrant and the spices are toasted.

Take 2 cups of the beans and some of their liquid and mash them with a fork.

Add the cooked beans, the mashed beans, and broth. Simmer over medium-low heat for 15-20 minutes.

Stir in the frozen corn, heavy cream, and salsa verde. Cook the chili for 4-5 minutes longer so that everything is heated through and fully combined.

 Ladle the creamy bean chili into a cozy bowl and top with all your favorite toppings.
