White Chili (Crockpot recipe)

Posted on

My friend, Ashley, shared this recipe with me recently and I had to make it ASAP because although I’ve saved countless recipes for it, I’ve never actually made it or even tried it!  I have to say it’s very tasty, especially made her way with corn chips on the bottom and cheese on top (usually around here this is called a Frito pie).  You just can’t go wrong with salty corn chips and cheese in your chili!  Sooo good!  Unless of course you’re watching your calories, then you’d be better off sprinkling a bit of cheese on top with just a few corn chips for garnish, as I did above.  However, the chili is so good it can totally stand on it’s own. Any way you serve it would be great!

So here’s the recipe Ashley’s sister gave her when she got married (awww, those recipes are the best!) and that she has graciously permitted me to share with you!  Enjoy!

1/4 teaspoon cayenne

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
corn chips
shredded cheese

  1. I LOVE white chili! Looking at it over those corn chips is making me crazy! Gosh that looks good! Thanks!


  2. Funny I just gave a friend a recipe today for white chili! I have to admit though, this sounds better!! Your picture is making me hungry and I’ve ate dinner…lol! Thanks for sharing V. I see I have not been receiving updates on this blog…I wonder why? Oh well, I’ll have to catch up. I have been on a crockpot roll and see that this and your last recipe (at least) are with the crockpot…great minds think alike huh? ;)


  3. I love crockpot cooking! I also love the look of this chili. It’s a nice change from the usual red syle. Also I love fritos with my chili. It’s the only way to enjoy it….unless you are on WW….which I now am….hahaha :)


  4. Yum! My pastor’s wife served us an amazing white chili last Friday. She promised to give me the recipe, and I’m curious to compare–I’ve never made a truly rockin’ chili before. I should put my hand back to the plow, because a good chili is something everyone should have in their repertoire.


  5. White chicken chili is the only reason I go to Ruby Tuesdays… I have to try it at home. This sounds great!


  6. I have actually never had white chili! I’ve always wanted to try it though, so I’m bookmarking your recipe…it looks delicious!
