crock pot white chicken chili

so you know the story....our computer busted, so i had to consult to the cook books this weekend for some recipes. i have been wanting to make the chicken chili that everyone has been i looked this one up in my trusty red plaid cook book that we received as a know the special addition pink one (better homes & gardens) ~ this was freaking amazing!! I had never made chili before because I hate beans...well you can hardly taste them, they melt in your mouth! i think puting the chicken in frozen makes it taste better in the end...because i also did this with the crock pot chicken noodle soup. enjoy ;)

makes 6 servings

~1 lb. chicken breasts (i put these in frozen, and shredded before serving)
~3 ½ c. reduced sodium chicken broth (i added a little more approx 4 1/2 c.)
~2 (15oz.) can of northern white beans; rinsed & drained

~1 green bell pepper; chopped
~1 red bell pepper; chopped
~1 large onion; chopped
~2 jalapeno peppers; seeded & chopped
~2 garlic cloves; minced
~2 tsp. cumin
~1/2 tsp. crushed oregano
~1/2 tsp. salt
~shredded Monterrey cheese for garnish (we used Colby & Monterrey blend)
~tortilla chips; crushed if desired (we use tostitos multi-grain, which i highly recommend with everything!!)

~light sour cream

coat slow crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Place chicken in bottom of crock pot; frozen. Add minced garlic on top of chicken, follow with the chopped onion & then add the rest of the ingredients (minus the cheese,tortilla chips, & sour cream); mix well.

cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 hours. When chicken is cooked thru, shred chicken with fork.

before serving, top with shredded cheese, light sour cream &
crushed tortilla chips. Mmmmm, fantastic!!
