This white bean chicken chili cooks up in your slow cooker and is so delicious! It's the perfect change from your regular chili or soups!
When the colder weather hits, there are few things that I like better than a nice bowl of soup or chili. My husband's favorite is my crockpot chicken tortilla soup, and my children love my cheeseburger soup recipe, but I thought it was time to try something different!
I made this white bean chicken chili during our last snow storm and really, it came about because I went to my pantry and noticed that I had several cans of white beans that were getting close to their expiration date and I knew that I had a bunch of boneless skinless chicken breasts in the freezer.
Actually - I had everything I needed to make it already in my house and chances are you do as well! This recipe is enough to fill my 6 qt crockpot, so it will make quite a bit of white bean chicken chili!
Most recipes that you see for white chicken chili involve using a canned soup for the base as well as a packet of taco seasoning. While those recipes work fine for many people, we are always trying to reduce the number of processed foods that we have/use in the house.
I let this cook in the crockpot for a little bit without the lid for a little bit towards the end. This allowed a bit of the moisture to evaporate to the point where I could almost eat most of it using a tortilla chip as a spoon! It's really up to you!
For toppings, I like just a dollop of sour cream and some freshly-minced cilantro, but my husband found a bag of Fritos in our snack bin and crumbled those over it!
