White Chicken Chili Recipe

Have you had white chicken chili before? It’s got all of the same great chili flavors but it is not red like traditional chili. There’s no chili powder or tomatoes which makes your chili that deep red color. What you will find is lots of vegetables, chicken, cumin, spices, lime, cilantro and diced avocado on top. This was such a favorite dinner for us last week. We ate it for days. Every time I use my crock pot I wonder why I don’t use it more often! It’s so great to use in the summer so you don’t have to turn on the oven. Break out your crock pot and enjoy!!

How To Make White Chicken Chili

  2. Transfer to a large crock pot over high heat. Add broth, Ranch seasoning, lime juice, cumin, garlic salt, salt, pepper and pasta.
  3. Close lid and let cook for 2 hours on high. Reduce heat to low or warm. Right before serving stir in cilantro and top each individual bowl with diced avocado.

    All thanks to you, Christina you have added spice to my life.

    Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and minimize bloating caused by water retention. You just have to be
    more aware of what you eat, avoid to much sugar and fat, and eat
    plenty of fruit and vegetables.

    Looks delicious. Cant wait to try! After the 2 hours on high, how much longer does it need to be cooking on low?

  3. Sam Barnes

    Just wondering, but if you were use raw chicken and removed it, diced, and re-added it, do you think that might make it up the cooking time a bit? I’m in the market for recipes I can leave on over night for the next day after work since I’m gone almost 12 hours. (6 hours over night is much safer I think.)

    Hi Jenny 🙂
    First of all LOVE YOUR BLOG … I have followed it for years but only commented once or twice over the years 🙂 your blog was actually the very first blog I ever followed and thereafter my blog roll just kept growing LOL
    Well, I know that this is completely off topic from this post but since this is your newest post I decided to write it here instead of writing in one of your old posts 🙂
    Ever since you posted a picture of the Kate Spade crossbody bag (the pink and orange one) in one of your chit chat posts this spring I have been WANTING if ….ha ha… Well, now I finally have a little extra to spend on myself (most of our money is spent on the kiddos LOL)… But before purchasing it I just wanted to ask you if you still love yours as much as when you bought it, or have you changed your mind about it?
    And is yours the smaller (Tenley) or the larger (Cora) version of this bag?
    Thank you so much for all your wonderful recipes. I will definitely be making this white chili 🙂

    Looks delicious! I just got your book and flagged several recipes to try soon–love it!!

  6. Shana Norris

    The addition of pasta & ranch seasoning has me intrigued. Yum! And of course I’m always on the lookout for a great slow cooker recipe.

  7. Simone

    This is currently in my crockpot for dinner tonight! I am having my husband’s guy friends over and thought it’d be a good rainy day meal. I have to admit that I had to come back on here to check that it said 1/4 cup of cumin, because I’ve been worrying it was tsp and I read it wrong. I added 1/8 to be safe.

    I put mine on low and just had my husband add the noodles, since work didn’t allow me to do 2 hours. Excited to try it, thanks for the great recipe!

  8. Deborah

    I am the same – I love the slow cooker in the summer so I don’t have to heat up the house! This looks so good!

  9. Jennifer

    How long do you keep it on low, after you have cooked it on high 2 hours? Does it still need to cook more? Will the pasta get too soft if you keep it on low for a few hours (after the 2 hours of high)?

  10. BestAndWorstOfGermany

    Even I am not a cooking blogger but I am sure the pictures form my kitchen are nicer than in any posh cooking blog, including you! 😉 😛

    On a different topic. Even if I found this blog listed as one of wordpress blogs, I really hate when I can’t find a typical Follow function on its usual place!

  11. Maegan @ The BakerMama

    This sounds so delicious! Love how it has lots of zucchini in it! I think my family would eat it up!

  12. Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl

    This looks amazing, your pictures scream fresh! They also scream “eat me” because I really want this dish!

  13. Pat Cody

    Is it really 1/4 Cup of Cumin? Sounds like a lot but I admit, I love Cumin. Just wanted to be sure.

    1. Jenny

      That is correct 🙂 You scan always start w less if you’re nervous, but it’s a giant pot of chili 🙂

  14. Lauren @ Climbing Grier Mountain

    This chili has my name written all over it! It was rainy this past weekend in Denver and totally put me in the mood for slow cooker meals:)

  15. Ali | Gimme Some Oven

    This looks soooooo comforting. And I love the fresh zucchini in there! 🙂

    Totally want to try this.

  16. Meagan @ A Zesty Bite

    I like white chicken chili more than just the regular stuff. Like that you added pasta to yours.

  17. Cookbook Queen

  18. Megan
