White Chicken Chili Recipe

Now that I’m 11 weeks and a few days from my due date, I decided I need to work on teaching my older children to make dinner. The whole dinner. And nothing but the dinner. Okay, they can make something other than the dinner, but you catch my drift.

Sunday afternoon I had everyone from Enoch up to Keziah write down five dinners they would like to learn to make. With a little coaching (you really only want rice and corn for dinner? Sorry, I’m not teaching you to make steak…but when you’re a grown man, you’re welcome to fix it) they all came up with a nice list.

So, this week as I was planning our meals, I worked into it the meals my children have chosen. On the top of Tilly’s list was White Chicken Chili. Mmmm, so yummy. Here is a recipe (they’re lots out there) adapted for your family.

Soak four coups of navy beans in crockpot overnight. In the morning, turn on high.

Once beans are cooked, add:

4 cups chicken broth

4 cups shredded chicken

2 cups frozen corn

Turn down to low or warm.

Sautee chopped onions, garlic and one small can green chilies until soft.

Add 2 teaspoons cumin

1 tablespoon chili powder, until it is evenly distributed.

Add to crockpot.

Add salt and pepper, and Frank’s Hot Sauce to taste.

Serve with:

warm corn tortillas or chips


pepper jack cheese (or cheddar, if that’s all you have)

sour cream

sliced avacado


This meal gets a thumbs up from everyone in our family.

      I would say that I cook the beans for 5-6 hours on high, since they are not presoaked. Once the beans begin to pop open, I turn the crock pot to low.

  1. Do you keep the water that you cooked the beans in and just add all the other ingredients to the Crockpot or do you drain the beans and then add all the ingredients together?

      Becky- I usually keep the water that I cooked the beans in. The majority of it gets soaked into the beans anyway. Hope that helps!

  3. After cooking the beans for 5-6 hours and adding the remaining ingredients, how long to you cook the chili in the crock pot? Do you continue cooking on high, or turn the crock pot to low? Thanks!!
