Easy White Chicken Chili in the Slow Cooker


1 hour

8 servings




– Great Northern beans – Water – Chicken breasts – Red onion – Garlic – Mild green chilies – Ground cumin – Chili powder – Mexican oregano – Coriander – Chipotle pepper powder – Chicken broth – Sea salt  – Black pepper – Mexican blend cheese

Drain and rinse the beans to remove excess salt.  Place half the beans in a blender or food processor with some water and process until blended, but still slightly chunky.  Transfer the puréed beans to a 5 or 6-quart slower cooker, along with the remaining whole beans.

Add chicken, red onion, garlic, green chilies, spices, and chicken broth to the slow cooker.  Season with salt & black pepper.  Stir to combine.  Cover & set cook time to 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

When cook time is complete, remove the lid and add 1 cup of the shredded cheese and stir to combine.  Cover and allow cheese to melt for 1-2 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired.

Serve immediately with remaining Mexican cheese, fresh cilantro, avocado, jalapeño slices, and/or lime wedges, if desired.  Enjoy with your favorite bread and a salad!
