Rock the Crockpot! Simple & Hearty White Chicken Chili Recipe

I hesitate to share this recipe with all of you because anyone who knows me well (namely my husband & kids) are fully aware that I'm not the greatest cook. Thankfully, I'm not aspiring to be a contestant on"Top Chef" anytime soon.

While I can't *cook* all that well, I've been known to rock the crockpot and create some incredibly edible comfort food ....and by "edible" - I mean DELICIOUS, of course.  ;)

All kidding aside, I made an original white chicken chili tonight that I wanted to share with you because it is incredibly simple, hearty, healthy & inexpensive. Plus, my kids and husband raved about it.  SCORE!

Here's what you need to serve 5-6.

  • 4 Chicken Breasts - cooked and cubed (or shredded if you prefer)
  • 2 Tbl Onion Flakes (or 1/2 chopped onion)
  • 1 Can Sweet Corn
  • 1 Can of Rotel (10 oz)
  • 1 Can of Chicken Broth
  • 1 Can of Butter Beans
  • 1 Can of Kidney Beans
  • 1 Can of  Great Northern Beans
  • 1 Can of Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 Cup of Shredded Jack / Cheddar Cheese (I used Kraft's Mexican Blend)
  • 1 Cup of Sour Cream (or to taste)

Directions: 

Cook the chicken and season with salt and pepper.  Cut into chunks and place into your crockpot.  Add remaining ingredients and cook on low 4-6 hours.

That's it!  My kids aren't crazy about super spicy foods so this is a fairly tame chili but the Rotel gives it a nice kick.  You can add hot-pepper sauce to kick it up a notch if you like spicier chili.  We served ours with warm rolls but this would also be very tasty with tortilla chips or topped with tortilla strips.
