What I love about slow cooker white chicken chili

The most amazing thing has happened. After years and years of my sister and friends asking for slow cooker recipes, I am finally on board. I have decided to learn to use mine, and it’s wonderful. To be fair, it’s not that I haven’t wanted to use it in the past, I just haven’t really had it with me when we were overseas, and I don’t seem to want to use it in the summer because even though you can use a slow cooker to make warm weather foods.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it

A slow cooker seems to be the perfect thing for hearty stews and soups and roasts. Luckily, it’s that time of year. In fact, it’s really cold out today. Good cold, but cold nevertheless. So last night, I made a batch of my favorite slow cooker white chicken chili. I already had a recipe for it on here, but I’ve updated it (no more dairy!) and made it slow cooker friendly.

How to make slow cooker white chicken chili

You’re going to love it. It’s so easy, and the chicken literally shreds itself when you’re ready. Okay, you actually have to do the work, but it’s so easy I can’t even begin to describe it any other way.

And, you have to top it with crushed up tortilla chips and cilantro, because it’s delicious. And, do you really need an excuse to add chips to a recipe? No. You don’t. Obviously, if you want to go crazy you can easily add shredded cheese and sour cream or whatever else you like on top of your chili, but you cannot forget those tortilla chips.

  1. Made this tonight and it was delicious! However – the nutrition info is all blank. Can you provide it? (Specifically the calorie count!) Thank you!

  2. Recipe was good, just a little bland for my taste. Obviously that is what makes it healthier. I had some leftover heavy cream in my fridge, and added some of that for consistency and to make it visually more like “white” chicken chili. Also added a little taco seasoning. Was delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹

  3. Super simple and DELICIOUS! Used low sodium everything, forgot the coriander, but allowed everyone to add their own toppings to taste (guac, Italian cheese, sour cream and tricolor tortilla strips) YUM!
