White Chicken Chili

PERFECT for those cold, wet, and dreary winter days! Kirby loves this stuff. He ate it for three or four meals in a row--out of choice, not out of lack of options. :) And then once he ran out, he wanted me to make it again. 

White Chicken Chili


3 cans (15½ oz) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
3 cups cooked chicken (shredded is best... 
I'm thinking about using canned chicken next time I make it. It would save a lot of prep time!)
1 jar (15 oz) alfredo sauce
2 cups chicken broth
1-2 cans diced green chiles
1½ cups frozen corn
1 cup shredded Monterey jack
(At Walmart, the shredded Great Value cheese is actually cheaper than block. But they didn't have plain monterey jack in the shredded variety, 
so I just used a blend. It was Monterey jack and cheddar, I think?)
1 cup shredded pepper jack 
(I have to buy block and shred my own... Couldn't find it pre-shredded.)
1 cup sour cream
1 small sweet yellow pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp oil
Salt and Pepper to taste


1.     In a skillet, sauté chopped pepper, onions, and garlic in a tablespoon of oil until tender.
2.     In a 5-6 quart slow cooker add all of your ingredients and stir until combined. Let cook on low for 3-4 hours or until heated through.

**Top with cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips!

Pretty darn easy. It can take some time if you need to cook the chicken beforehand. The lady I got this recipe from cooks a bunch of chicken up at the same time, shreds it all, then freezes it. Once we have a bigger freezer I'm planning to do this, as well. Shredded chicken can be used in so many things!

hey thinking about making this... do you think canned chicken would change the flavor or consistency at all or do you think we wouldn't be able to tell the difference? (i'm feeling lazy)

How about a rotisserie chicken... they're $4.99 at Costco and oh so tender and tasty.
