This easy chili is healthy, hearty and has enough kick to warm you right down to your toes. Cooked in nutritious bone broth and a mix of spices, chicken, jalapeño and chickpea fusilli create a delightful fusion of flavor, yet it’s the “cheese” that takes this dish to the next level. Cauliflower, dairy-free milk and nutritional yeast blend into a creamy sauce that’s loaded with satisfying “cheesy” taste. Mix the sauce into the chili for a thick, comforting bowl of deliciousness.

Cauliflower cheese


  1. In pot full of boiling water, cook cauliflower pieces 15 minutes, until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, in large pot over medium heat, heat oil. Cook onion and jalapeño until soft, about 5 minutes. Season with garlic, oregano, thyme, sage, cumin, salt and pepper; continue cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Add green chilis, chicken, collagen and water; bring to boil. As soon as the outside of the chicken turns white, add pasta. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer about 10 minutes.
  4. In blender, combine cheese sauce ingredients. Blend until completely smooth. Stir into chicken and pasta.
  5. Stir in MCT oil, white beans and corn. Continue cooking 2 minutes, until chicken is tender and pasta is cooked through.
  6. To serve, garnish with fresh green chilies and a squeeze of lime, if desired.
