Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili – A Guest Post!

I’m on a big slow cooker kick here recently. (If you follow me on Pinterest, you’re probably rolling your eyes and nodding right now, ha!) To me, there’s just not much better than coming home from work to a house that smells like dinner – where said dinner is already DONE and waiting for you! I mean, really! It’s fabulous! So when the lovely Elizabeth Gay contacted me about this post, I was understandably receptive! Let’s see how SHE uses HER slow cooker!

Thanks so much to Kristen for having me on her fabulous blog!

I’m writing from the Windy City of Chicago where we just got 18 inches of snow this week. Cold, wet, blustery days like this call for hearty comfort food. For that, I turn to my slow cooker. This recipe for White Chicken Chili fits the bill: it’s hearty and filling without being too indulgent (so we can all stay on those New Year’s resolutions…). It’s loaded with protein and fiber, and can be totally customized to your tastes. This recipe uses Ro*Tel Original canned tomatoes, but if you can handle the heat, feel free to use the spicy version – or the mild if you’re serving picky eaters. The best part is that it makes your house smell fantastic as it cooks away all day!

Thighs are the most tender cut of chicken, but if you prefer breasts you can use those instead.

If I have them on hand, I add diced carrots or zucchini for an extra serving of veggies (or whatever vegetable might be getting old in your fridge right now).

New Product Try-Outs: Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

Well, you know me, when I find a fantastic product I do love to share it! And this one is no exception.

We all love our Crock Pots, right? I find that, especially on Mondays, when it’s hard to get back into the swing of things after the weekend, it’s easy to throw stuff in the Crock Pot or slow cooker and come home to a nice dinner. One less thing to worry about after a long day! But I’ve found something that makes it even easier than that…
