White Chili with Sausage: Easy in VitaClay!

White Chili with Sausage: Easy in VitaClay!

This recipe is suitable for all VitaClay models!


I love to find new twists on old favorites. This ÔÇťwhite chiliÔÇŁ recipe not only looks different, but it has more of a Tex-Mex flavor and spice that really changes things up. This is a great dish to use for a party or it may just become a family favorite.

It will certainly be a favorite of yours, once you realize how easy it is to make with VitaClay, and how great everything tastes when itÔÇÖs cooked in clay! Let us know what you think!


  • 2 T coconut oil or other healthy fat
  • 2 lb of your favorite sausage
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 lb white beans: soaked, cooked & drained
  • 1.5 c salsa
  • 3-4 c broth (make your own--see recipe below!)
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 c corn kernels (get organic to avoid GMO contamination)
  • 2 T hot peppers (whatever spice level you can handle), finely chopped
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • ┬Ż t salt
  • ┬╝ t ground black pepper
  • ┬╝ t cayenne pepper
  • shredded cheese, cilantro and chopped green onions for garnish
  1. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet and saut├ę the onions and sliced sausage until onions are tender. (Note: this step can be skipped and everything will taste just fine if you just throw it all in the clay pot raw).┬á
  2. Add the onions & sausage along with the cooked beans and all remaining ingredients to the VitaClay cooker. Cover, seal and set to ÔÇťstew,ÔÇŁ cooking 1-2 hours.
  3. Keep it warm in the clay pot until youÔÇÖre ready to serve.
  4. Garnish with shredded cheese, cilantro and chopped green onions and serve with chips or bread.
