I received a package of Buckeye Beans & Herbs White Chicken Chili as a gift but the directions are gone, is there anywhere I can get them? Thanks

Hi Cara,

I’m so sorry I did not reply to this sooner! I accidentally overlooked it. I am happy to give you the instructions for our White Chicken Chili. Here they are:

- 1 Box Buckeye Beans Chicken Chili
- 1 seasoning packet (included in box)
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 5 cups water
- 1-1.5 LBS boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
- 1 can (7oz) mild green chilies, chopped

Rinse and sort beans, discard any foreign material. Place beans and 4 cups water in a kettle. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 1 hour. (This is the quick-soak method.) Drain off water and proceed with instructions.

Bring 5 cups water, beans and onion to a boil and simmer covered for 1 hour. Add chicken and seasoning packet and simmer covered for 1 hour, or until beans are tender and thickened. Stir occasionally to prevent scorching. Thin with water if necessary. Right before serving, stir in chilies.

Please let me know if you have any further questions! You can also contact us via our contact form here:
