Crock Pot White Chicken Chili = Delicious!

This wonderful recipe has become a favorite of several of our friends.  I promised I would repost soon – so here it is. 🙂

I rarely brag on anything I make, but this white chicken chili was absolutely delish and I can’t wait to make it again! The original recipe came from a recipe blog I adore called Plain Chicken. The recipes on this blog are the kind that I make – simple, easy, quick, and delicious! When I decided to make the chili, of course, I didn’t have all of the ingredients. So, I improvised, and actually liked the changes. I also needed to make much more than the original recipe made so I trippled some ingredients and tweaked some others. Below is the result that has now been rated as one of our new family favorites! I hope you enjoy it just as much as we do.

Crock-Pot White Chicken Chili
Jennifer Walker
3 lb. bag of chicken tenders
1 can of whole kernel corn (undrained)
1 can of navy beans (undrained)
2 cans of rotel tomatoes (undrained)
2 cans of petite diced tomatoes (undrained)

3 cans of water

8 oz cream cheese (low fat, optional)***
3 packets of ranch dressing mix
2 Tbs. cumin
2 Tbs. chili powder
2 Tbs. onion powder
Place all ingredients in a crockpot. Cook on low all day or on high for 4-5 hours. Before serving, use forks and shred the chicken. (This chili is so good that it doesn’t even need cheese or sour cream on top! But you can add those if you wish.)

***In the past, no matter how much I stir, we still end up with little lumps of cream cheese.  I don’t mind – since I heart cream cheese –  but I want to find a solution to this.  One thing I am going to do differently this time is to melt the cream cheese with a little of the liquid that goes into the crock pot.   I’ll mix it with the liquid and microwave it until I can stir it into the chili. I’ll let you know if it works. ;0)

Easy enough??? That, plus how delicious it is is why this crock pot white chicken chili is a new Walker fav!
