When I need a healthy, easy dinner for the family, I get out my slow cooker and make this chili. Chicken, cannellini beans, and salsa verde make this a delicious and somewhat spicy dish. Serve with shredded cheese and tortilla chips.

Chile Chicken Chili Haiku: "Guess we're of the few. Salsa verde overwhelmed. But easy to make." The salsa verde really took over this entire crockpot of chili making it less than enjoyable for us to eat. I followed the recipe exactly, except using a can of crushed tomatoes instead of puree (close enough, if not same), homemade chicken stock instead of veg broth, and a chicken that I'd cooked, shredded and frozen into meal-time portions ahead of time (that had produced said chicken stock.) If I made again, I would saute the onions and peppers in olive oil, adding garlic, prior to putting in the crockpot, and would sub small cans of diced green chiles instead of the salsa verde.

Wow! this chili is great. Easy to make with the rotisserie chicken and packed with flavor. I actually added too much cayenne pepper but my family is still eating it. I made white rice to go along with it and they like the combo. Read More

this is excellent! i left out the cayenne powder, chili powder and cumin. i use mile rotel tomatos and canned corn. after picking over a roto bird for 1 dinner, i shredded the rest of the bird into a large cast iron stock-pot. the slowcooker is not needed here. i used fresh red bell-pepper. this is BETTER the next day. i made some sweet cornbread and a salad. excellent stuff!!

This is very good. I was really surprised that something so easy would be this flavorful. I love it as written and I love how easy it is to change it up using whatever is in the house at the time. Very good! Thank you:) Read More
