Crock Pot White Cheesy Chicken Chili
This is a Thick Cheesy Chicken Chili with a little kick of Spices. If you like your chili spicier, I would add a lot more jalapenos. I used about 3 tablespoons in my batch.
Original recipe makes 4 servings
1/2 pound dried Great Northern beans
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 small onion, chopped
3 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 can tomatoes with green chilies (drained)
2 Large slices of Velveeta White Cheese(I Slice off about 2 Inches)
4 ounces shredded Mexican cheese blend (optional)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste (optional)
Place Great Northern beans into a large container and cover with several inches of cool water; let
stand 8 hours to overnight. Drain and rinse beans.
Place beans, chicken, onion, chicken broth, can of tomatoes, and Velveeta White Cheese, jalapeno pepper, cumin, oregano, and garlic powder in
a slow cooker.
Cook on High for 4 hours or on Low for 8 hours. Remove chicken breasts from the chili and place on
a work surface; shred chicken breasts with a fork and mix back into chili.
Spoon chili into 4 bowls; top each serving with 1/4 of the chopped tomato, 1 ounce Mexican cheese
blend, and 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro.
