Healthy Crockpot White Chicken Chili

Monday, October 3, 2016






The first time I had this chili was when a friend brought it over when we had first moved in to our house. After tasting it I immediately thought she was an amazing cook and I would never/could never possess the skills to make such a delicious meal. Until I asked her what was in it... and was pleasantly surprised at just how easy it is! Not even just how easy it is... it's not terribly unhealthy! Wahoooo. Win win. 

Years passed before I attempted my own white chicken chili... I found a recipe on Pintrest, tweaked it in a few areas and my oh my... My tastebuds were DANCING. 

So I am here today to share with you this lovely recipe.

Ingredients (takes 4 to 6 hours to cook in crockpot)

1.5 pounds uncooked chicken breasts


32 
ounces chicken broth

teaspoons salt

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1 can (15 oz) DRAINED white beans

2 cans (11 oz) canned mexicorn (corn with peppers)

1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies

1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso green chiles (for mild) OR ortega fire roasted for spicier (for the record I prefer the spicier! I also add an extra cream cheese pack to tone down the spicy... don't tell anyone ;) )

8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese

1/3 cup chopped cilantro


Toppings
Tortilla chips
Sour cream
Chopped green onion
Lime slices

Shredded Mexican Cheeses



Instructions

3. Drain and rinse white beans.

2. Add chicken breasts, chicken broth, salt, cumin, chili powder, pepper, drained beans, mexicorn (with juice), diced tomatoes (with juice) and green chiles (with juice).





















3. Cook on high heat until chicken is cooked through (about 4 hours).
4. Remove chicken into separate bowl. Shred with forks. Return back to crockpot.










5. Add cream cheese (or cream cheeseS in my case occasionally hahah)
6. Let cream cheese melt into chili and stir until mixed. 
7. Mix chopped cilantro in right before serving.

  2. Hi Britney! So I've been following you for a while now, like a couple years, and this is so funny but I was on FB just now and my 2 year old bumped my arm and up popped a new page (random) but the article caught my eye and you were on there!! This writer stole your photos!!!! I have actually had pics stolen from my blog too and hated the feeling. I just thought you'd want to know! The writer even goes as far as saying that the pics of you are of her! Here's the link... http://astounding-reports.com/BigBangTheory2/?campid=&creaid=&sxid=87aw45t997jw
    I hope this helps! Also, I only wrote on this post bc the email wasn't working for me. Have a great night mama!! Ashleigh
