Crockpot Creamy White Chili with Chicken

Crockpot Creamy White Chili with Chicken


This could sound really strange, but I have never had a white chili. It was such a cold and rainy day yesterday I decided for some reason to try it out. I was wanting a nice hearty soup to warm our bones but I didn’t want a classic chili, so I ventured out to fine a crockpot creamy white chili with chicken recipe!

This chili does have a bit of kick in it, since their is green chili’s in it. I thought it was a nice switch of soups and I found a recipe but I altered it because I am a fan of creamier soups, it was a bit to watery for me. But, the flavor was great and I am glad I chose this recipe to try out for my first time!

I found the recipe over at I Dig Pinterest, I did alter the recipe some.

White chili with chicken


    • 1 package of boneless chicken ( I used Tyson Tenders)
    • 2 cans of Northern Beans (15 oz cans)
    • 1 can of Chicken broth (12 oz)
    • 1 small onion diced small
    • 2 cans of green chili’s (4 ounces)
    • 1 tsp season salt
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp pepper

Ingredients to add at very end of cooking:

  • 4 oz of velveeta cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • (corn starch and cold water used to thicken soup)
  • Shredded sharp cheese for garnish (optional)


  1. On the chicken you can use frozen or thawed, if you use frozen you will want to cook a bit longer. For fresh chicken you will cook for around 5-7 hours.
  2. Add all the ingredients except the cheese, sour cream and such at the bottom of the recipe. You will want to turn crockpot to low, and cook for about 5-7 hours. Once you do that, pull out all the chicken and tear it apart. Then toss it back into the crockpot.
  3. About 30 minutes before you are ready to serve you will want to add the bottom ingredients – cheese, sour cream, half and half to the soup and stir well. I added about a few teaspoons of cornstarch to 1/3 cup cold water and stirred it in the soup. I did this a few times until the soup started to thicken. Make sure to stir throughout.
  4. Then serve soup with shredded cheese on top, crackers or whatever else. We had cornbread with ours!


Crockpot Soup Recipes


I thought this soup turned out really well. Since I have never tried a white chili before, I can’t really compare. I saw some recipes where they used a tomato base, so I might attempt that next time just to try something new! If you don’t like too spicy you might just do 1 can of the green chili’s. This soup wasn’t like burning my throat or anything but there was a tad bit of kick to it.

I think adding a little salsa to it would be good as well for my husband. He likes things hotter then me, or a splash of tabasco!

Have you made a white chili before? If so what did you think?

  1. I have only had a white chili once and I thought it was really good. We like to eat spicy food (my husband always adds even more hot stuff to things I think are spicy enough!) I will save this to my Crock Pot Pinterest board.

  2. I make a white chicken chili that I absolutely love, but this one looks totally different. It sounds delicious!

  3. Oh yum, that looks delicious!!! I love my slow cooker and this looks like creamy and comforting heaven! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. I make chicken chili but not a white chicken chili. I will have to give your recipe a whirl. It looks fantastic!

  5. I’ve only had a white chili based on the meat inside of it. I’ve never had a white creamy chili before!

  6. So, we aren’t really bean eaters. Do you think that this would still be good without the beans in it?

  7. This is a fantastic recipe! I love how creamy it is but also hearty.

  8. I’ve never had white chili, either. I only recently started eating chili in the first place, though.

  9. Oh my that white chicken chili sounds delicious for this time of year. I have a white chicken chili recipe, but it doesn’t sound quite as good as this one:-)

  10. I am so in the mood for chili! That looks so good! Pinning for later!

  11. That looks yummy and great for the Fall!

  12. Wow, I’ve never heard of such a thing! It looks so good!
