15 minute white chicken chili {five ingredient white chicken chili}

For years I have used the same recipe for white chicken chili.  It required a lot of cutting, dicing and prep work but it was worth it because it tasted SO good! It had loads of peppers and onions and garlic and lots of flavor.  And then recently I was in a bit of a time crunch, I knew I wanted to make white chicken chili but just didn't have the time to do all that prep work.

Enter five ingredient white chicken chili {or 15 minute white chicken chili}.  Call it whatever makes you happier! :) Just know that this variety is fast, easy and deliciously amazing!! You can get it in your crockpot before breakfast and be ready for dinner by 7:30am!!

You want to make some?  You don't even need your coffee first.  Also, note that this doesn't even need to simmer in your crockpot all day.  I only had it in there for a couple of hours.  The base is SO flavorful that it doesn't need all the crockpot time, it's just nice to have something smelling good in the crockpot all day.  You could also just heat it up in a stockpot if you needed to do so!

Ready to make some?  Here is what you need:

5 Ingredient White Chicken Chili

1lb ground chicken, browned (or you could sub about the same volume of shredded cooked chicken breast)
2 cans of great northern beans
2 tsp cumin
1 jar (or about 2 cups) of salsa verde!  (this is the magic ingredient!!)
2-6 cups of chicken broth (I like a chunky chili, maybe you like a soupy variety, just add broth until you are happy with the consistency).

Just brown your chicken, dump all the ingredients into your crockpot and adjust the temp for how long you have until you want to eat.  I did "high" for two hours but you could do "low" all day.

I served it with a variety of toppings: sour cream, mozzarella cheese, tortilla chips and diced avocado (TRY this, it is AMAZING!).  You could also serve with green onions, corn chips, etc.  Be creative with your toppings but try this today!! Dinner could be done and delicious!!

This is my new go to for white chicken chili!  It has so much flavor that you would think I did a lot of chopping and prep work but it couldn't be easier.

Enjoy your new favorite recipe!!

I tried a white chicken chili recipe this weekend that ended in disappointment. I am determined to find one I love! I can't wait to try this one!

I had all the ingredients on hand and made some tonight with a few additions. I added a diced onion and red pepper for a little more bulk and nutrition. It was good but a little too spicy with 2 cups of salsa verde, especially for my kids.

Next time I'll only add 1 cup of the salsa verde.
Thanks for the idea. It's great to be able to put something together quickly when you're short on time! :)
