Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker Easy Chicken Chili

** This slow cooker chicken chili is full of flavor, but easy on prep-time! 

It seems like there are a lot of women around me that are having new babies lately, and that always brings forth memories of when your own children were teeny tiny newborns. 

Chicken Chili Recipe

I think the first time I ever had White Chicken Chili was just after I brought my second baby home from the hospital. Some ladies from church came over with a giant pot of it, along with all the toppings, and served me up a giant bowl while I laid out on the couch. They then proceeded to snuggle my daughter, wash my dishes, fold some laundry, and helped me feel just a little bit more human again.

I don't know if it was the exhaustion or what, but it was the most magical soup I have ever tasted and I have thought about it for the past three years. It only seemed fitting that I finally recreate it and take it to some of the mamas around me who are just bringing their own babies home. 

White Chicken Chili

Normally when it comes to making chili, I just dump things into the pot - it always turns out a little different, but its always good. I like that this white chicken chili is also good for just dumping - its very easy and mindless to prep, and the crock pot does all the work for you!
