Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili is the perfect cold weather comfort food. This chili is seasoned with bold Southwestern spices and simmered in a crockpot for maximum flavor!

It’s officially 2018 and while I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions, we ARE trying to recover from some serious eating over the last several weeks. I don’t know about y’all but I ate way too many cookies, too much red meat and an insane amount of goat cheese. I regret nothing. But, over the weekend Austin and I were craving ANYTHING besides holiday food.

Oh, and did I mention that it’s freaking frigid in Florida? Well, it is.

There’s nothing better than throwing dinner in the slow cooker on a cold, dreary day. That’s why this White Chicken Chili really hits the spot. It’s so simple to prepare because just about all the ingredients are canned or pre-packaged. I use a package of dry taco seasoning for this recipe because I love shortcuts. If you’d rather rummage through your spice rack, go for it! Use a combination of chili powder, cumin, salt and garlic powder for the same Southwestern flavors.

I love to serve chili with a plethora of toppings. Everyone likes their chili just a little different so it’s best to let your loved ones fix their own bowls. It’s more fun that way anyways. Since this White Chicken Chili has a Mexican twist, it pairs well with the usual taco fixin’s: jalapeños, jack cheese, sour cream and cilantro. If you’re watching your waistline, I recommend using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I hardly recognize a difference anymore.

I also doctored up a box of corn bread mix with jalapeños, cheese and corn because what’s chili without corn bread? Side Note: maybe it’s a bit sacrilegious to admit I use a box mix but there’s no shame in my corn bread game.

Give this White Chicken Chili a try this weekend and let me know how it goes.

Happy New Year Folks!
