We have almost officially entered soup season – my favorite food season of the year!  Not only are soups satisfyingly delicious – they generally only require one pot, are a meal in one, boast layers of complex flavors from simmering, reheat beautifully for leftovers, and require hardly any “hands on” pep time – winning!  And my absolutely favorite types of soups – slow cooker soups!

Slow Cooker soups are almost effortless, prepped in advance and fill your home with the aroma of savory anticipation. Some of my favorite slow cooker soups are Slow Cooker French Onion Soup, Slow Cooker SKINNY Potato Soup, Slow Cooker BEST EVER Beef Stew – and now I’m adding this Slow Cooker Creamy White Chicken Chili to the top of the list.  It’s epic.

What Makes This White Chicken Chili So Delicious?

This Slow Cooker Creamy White Chicken Chili is bursting with all your White Chicken Chili faves:  tender shredded chicken, creamy, hearty beans, warm fiestalicious spices, tangy bright green chilies and aromatic fresh cilantro.  But to make this truly epic White Chicken Chili – its creamified!  Because nothing says ultimate comfort food like warm, creamilicious soup.  And because this soup is so knock your socks of delicious – you are going to want to eat bowl after bowl after bowl – which is why I’ve used a “skinny” method to make this soup rich and creamy.

How to Make Crockpot White Chicken Chili

  • Use a can of cream-style corn as part of the soup base instead of broth – its natural creaminess is a life-changing secret ingredient.
  • Use Homemade Chili Powder or store bought.
  • After this white chicken chili has been cooking and the chicken is tender enough to shred, you remove 1/2 cup broth and add it to your blender along with beans, cilantro, cream cheese and. Blend to create a smooth puree then add this back to the soup along with your chicken.  Cook for another 30 minutes and your soup will emerge soooooo wonderfully creamy.
