White Chicken AIP Chili (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

This hearty and comforting White Chicken AIP Chili comes together in 30 minutes, and it’s perfect for a delicious weeknight meal!

As Fall approaches (seriously, why does summer go by SO fast??), it’s starting to become soup season. While I love using the slow cooker or the Instant Pot to make my soups and stews, some recipes are just so quick and easy that you don’t need to pull out the gadgets. You just need the stovetop to pull together a delicious meal, and this White Chicken AIP Chili is one of those recipes.

White Chicken AIP Chili Recipe

I actually made this AIP Chili a while back when my mom was visiting me over last winter. I wanted to make some kind of soup for her, but my mom has rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune disease) so I like to cook her AIP recipes when she’s visiting. This is why AIP cooking is so near and dear to my heart.

This White Chicken AIP Chili came together super quickly and was so delicious, even without any kind of chili actually in the ingredients! The toppings really make this dish so definitely add some extra texture and flavors to the soup with some of your favorite garnish. My mom couldn’t stop raving about how much she loved it!

30 Minute Meals for the Paleo AIP Cookbook

I’m sharing this White Chicken AIP Chili recipe as a mini teaser for a community cookbook I contributed to: 30 Minute Meals for the Paleo AIP. I’m so excited to share this ebook, which contains 120 complete meal recipes that are:

  • 100% AIP compliant.
  • ready from start to finish in 30 minutes or less!
  • family friendly. All recipes serve 4 people.
  • made with “basic” ingredients that are budget friendly. There are no expensive pre-made store bought ingredients!

This community cookbook was put together by 40 bloggers, including myself, and is the brainchild of Jaime Hartman of Gutsy by Nature. We couldn’t be more proud of how amazing the book tuned out, filled with simple and easy recipes that anyone can follow!

The AIP diet, or the autoimmune protocol, means that every recipe is:

  • Gluten free
  • Grain free
  • Dairy free
  • Egg free
  • Nightshade free
  • Nut and seed free
  • Refined sugar free
  • Made from whole, nutrient-dense, unprocessed foods.

So, even if you aren’t following the AIP diet, the book may help you if you are looking to nourish yourself with anti-inflammatory foods on a budget and/or time-constraint!

Curtido (Salvadoran Spicy Cabbage Slaw) + Giveaway: Latin American Paleo Cooking

This paleo Curtido (Salvadoran Spicy Cabbage Slaw) is refreshing and crunchy, and makes an amazing side dish for almost any meal!

Curtido (Salvadoran Spicy Cabbage Slaw)

I love me a good, refreshing salad, and this curtido has been my go-to side dish for the past few days. The best thing about this Salvadoran spicy cabbage slaw is that the flavors get better and better the longer it sits, so I’ve been loving the leftovers and it goes great with just about anything.

This curtido is actually one of the many delicious dishes from the Latin American Paleo Cooking, a fabulous new cookbook written by my friend Amanda from The Curious Coconut with her mother-in-law, Milagros Torres. When I finally got my hands on the cookbook, I was delighted by all the beautiful looking recipes (I looooove Latin American cuisine) and bookmarked a bunch of pages to try out right away. All the dishes are authentic, allergen friendly (and mostly AIP!), and you can tell there was so much love and attention that went into the book.

I’ve already tried the Tostones (twice fried green plantains), which were so crispy and dangerously addicting. Other recipes I’m most excited for are:

  • “Queso” Blanco: Dairy-free cheese sauce… whaaat?
  • Pastelillos: A type of fried empanadas stuffed with meat
  • “Rice” Pudding: One of my favorite desserts, made grain-free!
  • Canoas de Plátanos Maduros: Meat-stuffed ripe plantains, which sounds like a magical combo to me.

So much care went into making each dish authentic as possible and I love that the book caters to so many food allergies.

What you can find inside Latin American Paleo Cooking:

  • Over 80 traditional recipes made Paleo, with over 90% being AIP or easily adaptable.
  • All recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free; all but 1 are egg-free.
  • The countries represented include: Puerto Rico, Cuba, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, and Brazil, each marked with that country’s flag for easy reference.
