Saute onion and garlic in olive oil over medium-low heat. Add spices and saute for 1 minute to help bring out the spice’s flavor. (Photo 1)

TIP: Traditional white chicken chili uses white or yellow onions, but I love the flavor of red onion in this chili. But feel free to use what you prefer!

Add chicken stock and green chiles. Thoroughly stir and turn heat up until mixture reaches a low boil. (Photo 2)

Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and simmer for about 25 minutes. The stock should reduce at least 1/3. (Photo 3)

Turn the heat down and add heavy whipping cream, cream cheese, and shredded rotisserie chicken. Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cream cheese has melted and the chili is fully heated through. (Photo 4)

TIP: To ensure the cream cheese fully melts, either cut it into small pieces before adding it to the chili pot or break it up with a spatula while heating the chili.

Remove from heat and serve with your favorite keto chili toppings and sides! Sour cream, avocado, shredded cheese, pork rinds, keto crackers and more are all great choices. 🙂
