SLOW COOKER WHITE CHICKEN CHILI RECIPE
My Crock Pot is one of my favorite things in the kitchen. I use it a lot during the week and it makes the chaos of a busy week a lot more manageable. It’s the perfect kitchen gadget when I know I need dinner ready and I won’t have time to cook that night.
Another reason I love crockpot cooking is that it’s easy to double or triple recipes and make leftovers for later in the week or to make freezer meals. Life is much easier when the slow cooker makes the meal for you, but even easier when I can grab it from the freezer.
I love to meal prep and batch cook for freezer meals. This recipe is just one of my favorites to double and freeze leftovers for later.

- Over crunchy tortilla chips
- In a bread bowl
- As a stand-alone chili

CAN I USE CREAM CHEESE WITH THIS RECIPE?
Absolutely! If you are looking for a creamier version of this recipe, I would add cream cheese and a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. It will thicken things up and give it even more flavor.
If you are looking for something a little different, I also have a great recipe for Instant Pot Chicken Chili. It’s another quick and easy weeknight dinner we make on a regular basis in the winter.
