Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili is so easy to make and the perfect family meal. Completely homemade and packed with incredible flavor!

Bowl full of slow cooker white chicken chili.

The first time I remember eating Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili was after I had my first knee surgery. I remember waking up shortly after getting home from the hospital and my mom appearing with a giant bowl of delicious, creamy, flavorful, white chicken chili.

It was exactly what I needed, the perfect comfort food! And it may not have played out exactly like that, I’m sure I was on some heavy pain meds shortly after coming home, but that’s what I remember. Leave it to me to remember food in every aspect of my life, even surgical ones.

I’ve been making my version of this classic comfort soup for years. It’s one of my absolute favorites in the winter time. I make a mean meat lovers chili and that is always delicious, but I love the simplicity of this slow cooker white chicken chili.

It also happens to be one of the easiest meals I make because I make it all in the slow cooker. Slow cooker meals are lifesavers on busy days! Since this is a soup and will just get more delicious the longer it cooks, I put this on first thing in the morning and let it cook all day long.

Plus that makes my house smell amazingly delicious. Tell me, what is better than coming home on a cold day to a house that is warm and smells like slow cooker white chicken chili?

Nothing. The answer is nothing. Nothing is better than that!

What I’m trying to say is, this slow cooker white chicken chili will make you mom of the year, wife of the year, friend of the year, or maybe even dog owner of the year. It’s that good. You don’t have to tell anyone how easy it is, send them here and let me tell them, ha!

Recipe Notes

By adding the 4 oz of peppers and cayenne, the soup will have a moderate heat. For less heat, half the peppers and leave out the cayenne. 

Shredding the chicken and adding the beans and sour cream 30 minutes before serving allows them time to warm up and for the flavors to meld.

If you are unsure if you will like the sour cream flavor, start by adding 1/2 of a cup and go from there until you reach a flavor you like. I like 2/3 cup, some people like even more than that. Don't be afraid to try out different ratios!

Great homemade tortillas recipe.
