During the colder months here in Florida, I love making one-pot meals like soups and stews. Chili is definitely one of our favorites. I’ve played around with some recipes and found I like this one the best. It’s easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of prep. The best part is… everything’s done in the slow cooker! This is my Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: soaking beans overnight
Total  Time:  6 hrs 45 minutes
Yields: 4 to 6 servings
Equipment: 7-quart Crockpot, chef’s knife, large mixing bowl, 1 (2-cup) measuring cup

Ingredients:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 tablespoons of dried oregano
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon of ground coriander
1 teaspoon of paprika
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon of white pepper
1 tablespoon of Kosher salt
1 pound of dried Great Northern beans, soaked and rinsed
2 ribs of celery, diced and cut into half-moons, include chopped leafy tops
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 (4-ounce) cans of  Hatch green chilies, chopped
1 large onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 quart of chicken stock, unsalted
1 cup of whole milk
1/4 cup Masa
1 (15-ounce) package of frozen corn
2 limes, 1 juiced, 1 cut into wedges for serving
1 cup of Monterey Jack cheese, freshly grated, 1/2 cup reserved for serving
2 avocados, sliced for garnish
Cilantro for garnish
corn tortilla chips for serving

Directions:
The night before, pour 1 pound of dried Great Northern beans into a large mixing bowl. Cover the beans, by 3 inches, with water, cover, and place on the counter. The next day, drain and rinse the beans to remove any excess starch.

Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. In a bowl, mix the cumin, coriander, oregano, paprika, red pepper flakes, white pepper, and Kosher salt. Sprinkle the spices over the chicken. Add the beans, celery, garlic, canned chilies, onions, and diced bell pepper.

Pour in the chicken broth, put the lid on and cook on low until the beans are cooked through, about 6 hrs.

Mix the milk with the Masa in a small bowl then add to the slow cooker. Add the frozen corn, straight from the freezer, and continue to cook until the sauce has thickened, about 30 minutes.

Remove the chicken to a board and shred using two forks. Return to the slow cooker, then add the lime juice, sprinkle in the Monterey Jack cheese and stir to melt.

To serve: Ladle the chili into a porcelain serving bowl, garnish with extra cheese, cilantro, avocado slices, and a lime wedge. Place a few tortilla chips in or on the side for garnish. This is my Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili. Serve hot.
