Maddie’s Go-To Quick and Dirty White Chicken Chili Recipe
So, if there's one thing I'm decent at, it's whippin' up a good crock pot recipe. Now that I'm working two jobs, and come next week - grad school, I'm always looking for a way to crunch down on my meal prep time.
Typically, when you think of quick and easy, you think fast-food. That used to be my go-to when I was running short on time. However, around this time last year, I joined a gym and made the decision to start eating healthier. This has been quite a challenge while on a short schedule. I've made crock pot meals before, but they had become a distant memory. I'm not sure why, but something possessed me to bust out the 'ol crock pot a few months back and I've been using it weekly every since.
Of course, I have a favorite meal that I whip up on a pretty regular basis. It's creamy, it's delicious, and it's not awful for you. I found the recipe on Pinterest a while ago and it has become a favorite at my house. Behold - white chicken chili. I've always enjoyed a good bowl of chili, but this never ceases to amaze me. My boyfriend practically begs me to make it and I always have plenty leftover to take to work for a couple days. Bonus: it's gluten free!
Find the recipe below. Enjoy. Let me know what you think!
- 2 Chicken breasts
- 1 can Black beans, drained (I only use a half can of beans because my boyfriend isn't big on beans)
- 1 can Corn, undrained
- 1 tsp Onion powder
- 1 can Rotel tomatoes, undrained
- 1 tbsp Chili powder
- 1 package Ranch dressing mix
- 1 tsp Cumin
- 1 8-oz package Light cream cheese (I chop the cream cheese up into smaller squares to distribute them in the pot easily)
Let it cook in the crock pot on high for 5-6 hours and enjoy. I hope you guys love it as much as I do! I hope to make this a regular thing and feature more of my go-to recipes for you guys.
