Easy Crockpot Chili Recipe

It’s been really cold in Southern California this year and it seems like I always want to make soup. I adapted a friend’s recipe and came up with Easy Crockpot Chili. It is amazing. And some people call it white chili. But I love this chili. And I think you will too.

Today I am joining some of my favorite bloggers as we are sharing our favorite soup recipes. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see all of the recipes.

Easy Crockpot Chili

This chili is light and delicious and so easy to make. If you buy a rotisserie chicken (or buy the already chopped rotisserie chicken from Costco), it will take you less than ten minutes to make this chili. 

One of the ingredients in this recipe is white beans. At first, I wasn’t sure what type of white beans to buy. But then I discovered Cannellini White Kidney beans. They are definitely what you want to buy.

How to Cook the Chicken

I like to cook my own chicken. My favorite way to make shredded chicken is to cook it in a saucepan. Just add a pinch or two to a pot of water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and cover. Allow chicken to cook until heated through (this usually takes 25-30 minutes for 6 chicken breasts and 8-15 minutes for 3 breasts, depending on the size). 

Once the chicken is cool, shred with a fork.

This recipe is one of the ones where you just dump everything in a pan and heat it up. Can I just say I love these type of recipes? This is so easy to make and tastes so delicious!

The chili can be cooked in a crockpot or on the stove top. I have made it both ways and we loved them both.

One of my favorite things about this chili is the crunchy Fritos. Adding a dollop of sour cream and Fritos makes this dish almost perfect.
