This Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili is a crowd pleaser and so easy to make. Throw everything in the slow cooker and let it simmer until you’re ready to eat!

Can you believe it’s mid October already? The temperature here in Arkansas has dropped to the low 50’s but I’m sure it will warm back up any day now. It is the South after all. I have big plans to hibernate as soon as the weather makes it’s mind up to stay cool. I’m like a bear that way. Just give me soup, a heated home, and I’ll stay there until Spring.

You better believe I’ll be consuming obscene quantities of this Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili. I’ve had a head start on that as I’ve already made three batches in three weeks.

It is so very tasty, friends. Plus it’s simple. I throw everything in the slow cooker at lunch time and it’s ready to go by dinner! That’s my favorite way to feed the family. How about you?

These are all ingredients I keep on hand. You can stock up on everything now and you’ll be all ready to go throughout the cool weather months.

Chicken. Beans. Corn. Green Chiles. Onion. Chicken stock. A little coconut milk. Lots of seasonings. Boom. That’s one hearty dish everyone loves.

Top it with chopped fresh cilantro, cheese, sour cream, or tortilla chips. It all works!

Made this and loved it? If you share a photo of your chili on Instagram tag me so I can check it out!

Looking for a chicken soup that doesn’t include beans? I’m a big fan of my Slow Cooker Hearty Chicken Stew.
