Slow Cooker Crock Pot White Chicken Chili Recipe
Oh hello yum! Last week as we were driving through the snow on our way home from Yellowstone and my brain instantly started thinking about chili, comfort foods, winter foods and all the goodness I needed to make in the crock pot. I mean what else are you going to do on an 8-hour drive home but craft new recipes in your head that you can’t wait to try. The first recipe I had to share is this Slow Cooker Crock Pot White Chicken Chili Recipe!
Thankfully I had 8+ hours in the car to think of what would make the best White Chicken Chili Recipe in the world that we could share with you. I knew I wanted to use a rotisserie chicken, Bush’s White Chili Beans since I have been seeing them at Walmart and love that they come pre-spiced and full of flavor, and some spices to make it a bit spicy but not to over the top.
The nice thing about making chilis is you really get to decide just how much spice and heat you put into the recipe. If you like it mild you can go down to a few pinches of spice or if you like your mouth to be on fire and gasping for breath you can add it by the heaping teaspoon. Totally up to you.
I am a mild flavor girl but my amazing husband is all in on the spices so I tend to make chilis a bit spicier for him.
Also, can I tell you a random funny family story? I was creating this recipe and thinking about ways to use the Bush’s White Chili Beans when my parents sent me these pics…
They had just completed the Bush’s Beans visitor center tour and I had no idea! I wish that I would have known they were going! I would have asked for all the fun recipes they could find and had them take more pics so I could see them. How cool is it that you can visit the Bush’s visitor center in Tennessee. I feel like this is another great reason to plan a return trip to the Smokey Mountains. Hmmm, I may need to work on this soon!

1 4.5oz can diced green chilis
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, finely diced

1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup sour cream
Optional for topping your chili
cilantro, jalapenos, non-fat sour cream, plain greek yogurt, shredded cheese, tortilla chips

If you prefer a creamier chicken you can add in a can of cream of chicken soup to the recipe. You might also check out adding in an additional can of Bush’s White Chili Beans if you want the chili to be even more filling. This is a great way to add density to the chili and make it last longer. I love how filling it is with extra beans.
