DaddyFood: Crock Pot White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

Today my transformation to woman will be complete as I share one of our newest and newly favorite recipes with you, my Crock Pot White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe. And I mean, this recipe is SICK. You know, sick good, not sick sick. Remember too that I’m not very experimental in the kitchen, so this recipe is REALLY easy. And once I share this recipe on my blog, the only thing left to do will be to go shopping for lipstick.

The Beauty Shot. Cue the harp. I added the sour cream and avocado, that’s how I roll.

Crock Pot White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

Pin it today, make it later!!

Let’s do this already.



2 lbs chicken breasts, thawed and ready
1 can chicken broth
1 tsp cumin (in the spice aisle. quit giggling and grow up already)
3 cans Great Northern white beans (with liquid)
1 jar mild-medium salsa
1 8 oz block Pepperjack cheese
avocado (optional)
sour cream (optional)
tortilla chips (optional)

For the pansies in your life, you can make this concoction milder by using mild salsa and cheddar jack cheese instead, as I have here. Mostly I just buy what is on sale, and it doesnt seem to matter to the end result…it’s always fantastic. Also, I couldn’t find my cheese grater and didn’t feel like buying a new one today, so I just bought an 8oz bag of cheese, which I’m guessing the majority of you lazy asses will do too. I commend you.

Crock Pot Chicken Chili, Step 1

Put the chicken, chicken broth, cumin, salsa and beans in your crock pot. Just pour ‘em all in. Open the cans, pour. Yes, you have to open the cans first. I’m assuming you have a 4th grade education here, smartass. Go sit in the back.

Use a knife, or like I do, a great pair of kitchen scissors to cut all the little white turds off the chicken,

Crock Pot Chicken Chili, Step 4

Crock Pot Chicken Chili, Step 4

Dump the chicken in your crock pot. Stir it up. Cover it up. Cook it all on low for 5 hours. At the 5 hour mark, use a couple of forks to shred up the chicken. You dont have to take it out of the crock pot to do this, although you can if it’s easier. Just don’t forget to put the chicken back IN the crock, genius. Then shred the block of cheese into the mixture (or dump in the bag of cheese you bought), and cook for 1-2 hours more. Serve it with avocado and/or sour cream, in bowls with tortilla chips.
