Crockpot 4-Bean White Chicken Chili

Crockpot 4-Bean White Chicken Chili

One of the best parts of crockpot cooking is the aroma. There is nothing better than coming home after a long day and getting a huge whiff of yummy deliciousness the moment you step into the door…sometimes even before you open your door.

Well, I can think of one thing that’s better. Often, when I’ve got something in the slow cooker while I’m staying home the smells just blend together with the rest of the house. Every now and then a recipe just fills the air, begging you to eat it. This is one of those recipes.

Seriously, I had to use all of my willpower not to eat a huge bowl before photographing it. It’s that good. This protein-packed white chili not only has healthy chicken breasts but four, yes count them four, different kinds of white beans. No heavy beef, no acidic tomatoes, just fresh lime and fresh cilantro. Perfect when you’re looking for a light, yet filling meal.

I placed my chili in the fridge to thaw overnight however it’s still frozen solid. I’m going to wait and try to cook it tomorrow. How long can I leave it in my fridge after it’s thawed?

Maybe a day or two? If it’s thawed enough to break apart, I cook it.

Yummy recipe. We cut the chili powder in half since the family doesn’t like spicy and served with a dollop of sour cream–it was delicious!

I sent you an email, but finally succeeded in posting this. Due to mouth problems, I can’t eat anything at all spicy. What seems mild to others is, unfortunately, excruciating to me. If I leave out the chili peppers, red pepper flakes and chili powder, is there anything you could suggest as a substitution, to add more flavor? Many thanks for all your great recipes!
