Crockpot White Chicken Chili

My style in cooking lately has been a bit experimental. I start out following a recipe from a book or online (from a Pinterest suggestion), but then I end up adding my own tweaks along the way. So, here is my twist on white chicken chili!

Ingredients:

3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

4 cups of chicken stock

1 clove garlic, minced

Hominy (1 can)

1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilis

1 can of white chili beans (Great Northern works!)

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

Creamy “sauce:” (in a small sauce pan)
Chicken bouillon cube (1) w/ ½ cup of water

½ stick of Butter

1 cup of Milk

½-1 cup of Flour (depending on how thick you want the sauce to be)

Sour cream

Chili cheese Fritos!

Instructions:

  • Trim off any fat from the chicken breasts first. Then, season both sides with salt & pepper & place in the crockpot. Add dry spices at that point (cumin & chili powder.) Set crockpot on low setting for 6-7 hours.
  • Add the chicken stock and place lid back on crockpot while opening & preparing the can of beans (drain & rinse off) & green chilis. (Dump these in with juices when ready.)
  • Now add the garlic, cumin, chili powder, & salt & pepper on top of the bean & chili mixture.
  • About 1 hour before serving, dump in anywhere from 2-3 spoonsful of sour cream, to 1-2 cups. (I’m just not big on sour cream myself, thus the variance.)
  • To make the creamy sauce, on the stove top, melt the ½ stick of butter, add flour, & then stir together. Pour in the milk & continue stirring for about 5 minutes. Then dump this into the crockpot as well.
  • Unplug or set crockpot on “keep warm” when you’re ready to serve it. Top with chili cheese Fritos (so yummy!) & other toppings like cheese, avocadoes, etc.
