Slow-Cooked White Chili

This satisfying slow-simmered chili features chicken, two kinds of beans and crunchy corn. "It's quick, easy and tastes great," says Lori Weber of Wentzville, Missouri. "It's a family favorite that we enjoy with corn bread," she adds.

    I've made this recipe for many years and have few changes -- I use chicken stock instead of water, omit the onions (family not a fan), and use chicken thighs instead of breast. My family really loves it. I've also used salsa verde when I didn't have chopped chiles. Easy and delicious meal!

    Excellent recipe! I haven't used my slow cooker for quite awhile and this recipe was great. Nice and healthy, too. I did add some salt because it tasted like it was missing it.

    I added a little chili powder and some black pepper to add a little extra flavor. We'll definitely add this to our list of keepers.

    Very good! I added a little bit of cayenne pepper to give it more of a kick.
