Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili


whitechili-copyToday is National Chili Day!  There’s no better way to warm up on a cold Sunday than with a bowl of hot, spicy chili.  Chili is one of the best comfort foods, in my opinion, because there are a million different ways to make it and eat it, it can be very healthy.

I have been making this white chicken chili for so long, I don’t even remember where I got the recipe.  I don’t think it was supposed to be a slow cooker recipe, but at some point, like most of my old recipes, I just started making it in the slow cooker.  There are a lot of white chili recipes out there, but I’ve stuck with this one over the years because it is simpler and has fewer ingredients than a lot of the others I’ve found.

This is a great recipe to make for a crowd.  The ingredients aren’t expensive, it only takes a few minutes to make a whole bunch of it, and people love it!  It tastes great with all kinds of chili toppings too- a variety of cheeses, green onions, avocados, tortilla chips, sour cream, cilantro, or whatever else you can think of.

The last time I made this, I paired it with a batch of my Browned Butter Skillet Cornbread and a green salad.  Needless to say, we had a very happy household that night 🙂
