Slow Cooker White Chili with Chicken

Rated as 4.05 out of 5 Stars

"Not your average chili. Because this is a chili and not a stew or soup, it is deliberately under-watered. I would add 1 cup of water if you are planning on leaving the house while this cooks, especially on High. And if you are using frozen chicken, allow an extra hour to reach the correct consistency. Also, you may need to add salt depending on how salty the broth you are using is. If you like your chili spicier, I would add a lot more jalapenos. I think I used about 3 tablespoons on a half recipe of this. For a more intense cumin flavor, use cumin seeds instead or add the cumin at the end."

I made it last night and the only issue I had was that it calls for way too much liquid. I used one can of white beans and next time would add a 2nd can. I will probably also put one of the cans...

I think the reason some folks found this recipe too soupy is because they used canned beans instead of dried beans. If using canned you could use a lot less stock. I added more heat, too, but ...

This recipie was very easy to put together and hearty on a cold evening! I garnished with fresh tomatoes, cilantro, shredded cheese, & sour cream and used flour tortillas for dipping. I will def...

Very tasty. I made this exactly as written except for using an entire jalapeño (just right as far as heat goes). Still, as a few others pointed out, too much liquid! This had nothing to do with ...
