White bean chilli


Hearty stews and belly-warming soups are coming out of the kitchens; frost is sparkling, and winter jackets are coming out of hiding. Families are craving slow-cooked, savory meals that yield health benefits and leftovers.

Delicious, savoury winter-recipe ingredients that will surely satisfy are beans and Oso sweet onions, an onion grown at the foot of the Andes Mountains. Onions are not only believed to be a cancer preventative, their low-salt, low-fat health benefits are the proactive equivalent to superhero powers. Onions have 25 compounds that lower blood pressure and cholesterol, prevent thrombosis, inhibit strokes and battle heart disease, says the American Heart Association.

Plus, the antioxidants and flavonoids found in onions don’t lose their potency once cooked. This makes them ideal for slow-cooked recipes. They add a punch of flavour and a whopping serving size, making them an affordable during the chilly winter months.

Use the following recipe for a tasty detour from your typical red chilli.


  1. Dried beans: 1 bag
  2. Oso sweet onions: 1
  3. Garlic (chopped): 1/2 cup
  4. Ground chicken or turkey: 1 pound
  5. Celery (chopped): 1 cup
  6. Oregano: 1 tsp
  7. Olive oil: 1/4 cup
  8. Large green mild chilli (deseeded): 2 each
  9. Chicken stock or water (to cover): 2 quarters
  10. Cumin: 2 tsp

Five words or lessSaute onions, garlic, celery, chillies, chicken/turkey for 10 minutes on medium heat. Add half of the chicken stock. Then add salt, pepper, oregano and cumin and simmer for 45 minutes. Then adjust with the remaining chicken stock. Combine all ingredients in crock pot or large heavy-bottomed pot, bring to a boil and then simmer overnight, or 8 hours.
