Crockpot White Chicken Chili – this low carb version of a classic is so creamy and filling. It’s simple to toss together and is a family favorite.
I’ve got quite a thing for slow cooker soups going here. I just love how easy they are and my family always gobbles them.
We like soup all year round – they’re warming and comforting in the winter, but they can be light and simple in the summer. I’m curious to hear if you guys eat soup all year round too?
How to make slow cooker white chicken chili:
This is a super simple recipe that you toss in your crockpot and forget about until dinner time. <– Assuming you can forget about it with all the delicious smells coming from the kitchen. 😉
Add some chicken breasts, onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, green chiles, garlic, and cumin to a slow cooker.
Pour in some chicken broth and give it a little stir.
Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 6 hours or until your chicken shreds easily. It’s important to remember that every slow cooker cooks differently – some run hotter than others and cook times will vary.
Shred the chicken and add in some softened cream cheese and heavy cream. It can be helpful to get the cream cheese very soft and almost melted in the microwave before adding to the soup. It will prevent it from clumping in the hot liquid.
Stir well until everything is incorporated, cover, and cook on high for another 30 minutes.
Your soup is ready to devour!
We like to serve our creamy white chicken chili with slices of avocado, jalapeno, and loads of cilantro. A dollop of sour cream on top is nice too.
Is this white chicken chili recipe spicy?
It has a nice little kick to it, but it was mild enough for my kiddos to eat without complain. If you’re concerned, reduce the jalapeno to half or leave it out entirely.
The canned green chiles add a great flavor and you can buy them in both mild and hot varieties, so don’t skip them!
