Spicy Slow Cooker Creamy White Chicken Chili

We love soups and chilis over at my house. During the fall and winter I make soup probably twice a week if not more. Nothing is quite as satisfying as soup when it’s cold and wet outside. Especially for Chris when he’s working outside all day. Every time I make soup or chili I double or triple the recipe because then Chris has something  warm for lunch for the next day. It helps too when my little guys asks for soup for lunch. I almost always have some on hand.  My two year old loves soup!

This Spicy Slow Cooker Creamy White Chicken Chili is delicious!  I make a version of this on the stovetop but I love to use my slow cooker. I use it all the time!  It’s so easy to just toss in some ingredients and forget about it. I love the fact that it is impossible to overcook meat too!

This slow cooker chili has quite a few ingredients but nothing you can’t handle.  All the ingredients just get tossed into the slow cooker and you can forget about it for 6 or 8 hours.  The cream cheese and corn just get tossed into the mix during the last half hour. Chop up a few garnishes and dinner is served. 

This white chicken chili isn’t overly spicy but if you aren’t a fan of any kind of spice you can leave out the canned chilis, or just use one can. Hot or mild canned chilis can be used if you like spice.  I said earlier that I always double or triple soup recipes, but you can easily cut this recipe in half. I like to freeze soup too, that’s another reason I make so much. Most soups and chilis feeeze really well. 

I like to garnish this white chicken chili with a little sour cream, sliced jalapeños, dived avocado and a few cilantro leaves. Sometime Chris and I add a few dashes of green pepper sauce.
