Let It Simmer | Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Budget Bytes


Jan 2nd, 2015


Can you believe it? It’s already 2015! After a holiday season full of decadent goodies and probably drinking a tad too much, I’m ready to kick my health into high gear. So, when ACME asked me to develop a healthy, fresh recipe using their private label products, I thought the timing couldn’t be more perfect.

I whipped up this Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili because it’s full of flavor, has tons of fiber and protein, is low in fat, and contains simple, real ingredients. The best part, though, is that it’s pretty much a “load and press go” recipe. Just combine all the ingredients in your slow cooker, turn the heat on, and when you come back a few hours later it’s all done! It couldn’t get any easier than that.

P.S. I scaled this recipe down a little to make it work in smaller slow cookers. You can make this in a 3-4 qt slow cooker, or double it for a 5-7 qt slow cooker so you can feed a crowd.

Serves 4-6

$11.59 recipe

$2.89 serving (1.5 cups each, 6 cups total)

Step One

Dice one onion and mince two cloves of garlic. Slice the jalapeño lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Dice the remaining jalapeño flesh. Add the onion, garlic, jalapeño and chicken breast to the slow cooker

Step 1

Step Two

Add one 16oz. jar of salsa verde, two 15oz. cans of cannellini beans, one 15oz. can pinto beans, 1 Tbsp ground cumin, 1 tsp dried oregano, ¼ tsp cayenne pepper, and ¼ tsp freshly cracked pepper to the slow cooker.

Step 2

Step Three

Add two cups chicken broth to the slow cooker, and give the ingredients a brief stir. Place the lid on the slow cooker, turn the heat onto high, and cook for four hours.

Step 3

Step Four

After four hours on high, the chicken should be fork tender and easily shreddable. Carefully remove the chicken breast from the cooker and use two forks to shred the meat. Return the meat to the slow cooker.

Step 4

Step Five

Stir the shredded chicken into the chili, using the back of a wooden spoon to slightly mash the beans as you go. The mashed beans will help thicken the chili.

Step 5

Step Six

Serve the chili hot with your choice of toppings. Creamy Monterrey Jack really brings the chili together, but fresh cilantro, avocado, sour cream, or tortilla chips all make the chili a little extra fun.
