We have a tradition with our family that every Halloween my mother-in-law makes Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili. It is so so GOOD!

  1. Pour olive oil in a large skillet and heat on medium-high until hot.
  2. Sauté diced chicken and toss frequently –  just until browned (about 3 minutes.)
  3. Place chicken in a 6-Quart slow cooker.
  4. Add remaining ingredients except cheese.
  5. Cover. Cook for 8 hours on Low.
  6. Top each serving with 2 Tablespoons of shredded cheese.
  7. Serve white chicken chili with tortilla chips, salsa, sour cream, and a lime wedge.

Variation: For Vegetarians, exclude chicken.

I really want to try this, but I think I’ll leave out the Ro-Tel. My daughter is allergic to tomatoes. There are so many other flavorful ingredients, that it should be fine.

Do you think this would serve 12 adults? If I double it, should I use 6qt crockpot ?
Thanks, Anne

Just made this on a rainy day and it was a hit! Delicious. Will definitely make it again.

Wouldn’t already cooked canned beans be mush after 8 hours in the crock pot?

Would it possibly work also to cook on high for 4 hours? Love this recipe but a little pressed for time today

My family loves this recipe so much…they just couldn’t wait. :). The only thing I was worried about…if the beans would be mushy, but I went ahead and cooked on high for 4 hours and it was great, as always…no mushy beans. Thus soup has become a staple in our home! Thanks!
