Last week it was frigid here. Two days last week temperatures never even broke 0. That called for a dinner that warmed you up from the core.
What better way to warm up than with a chili!
If you haven’t visited Amy’s blog, make it your next stop. She’s one amazing girl – self taught cook, yoga-lover, locavore, and, get this: she got married in a surprise wedding. Read her story here to find out about said wedding. Her recipes are mouth-watering and I had a really hard time picking my recipe for the challenge. I debated between:
- Slow-Cooker Cacciatore
- Pasta with Lentil Bolognese (which, is on my menu this week!)
- Fresh Carrot Pasta
- Whole Wheat Applesauce Oat Muffins, and
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
Yes, hard choices!! Especially when her pictures are outstanding. I was won over by the slow cooker white chicken chili photo and am so glad we gave this recipe a try. My husband and I both loved it.
Best part: it went together in 5 minutes.
Crockpot White Chicken Chili- From Amy @ The Fearless Homemaker
- 1 T minced onion
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 C shredded cooked chicken
- 1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes
- 2 (14 oz) can Great Northern Beans, rinsed & drained
- 4 oz. green chilies (we used mild)
- 1-3 tsp. chili powder (use more or less to taste; we used 1)
- pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 C chicken stock
- 1/4 C shredded extra sharp cheddar/colby jack cheese
Place the can of diced tomatoes (un-drained) into your crockpot. Add 1 T minced onion, 3 minced garlic cloves, 1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies, and 2 cans of Great Northern Beans that have been rinsed and drained.
Stir in 1-3 tsp. chili powder. We like the flavor, but don’t like burning mouths, so we opted for 1 tsp. of chili powder and just a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.
Add 1 C chicken stock and 1 C shredded cooked chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
Twenty minutes before serving, add in 1/4 C cheese. Stir.
Serve warm garnished with additional cheese and parsley, if desired.
