White Chicken Chili is one of my son’s favorite soup recipes, and definitely his favorite chili. This recipe is loaded with protein and can conviently be made in a slow cooker. Bonus, it can be cooked on a high or low setting which means I can start it in the morning before work, or in the early afternoon when I’m wondering what to make for dinner! If you’ve been searching for a slow cooker white chili, you have come to the right place. You are one easy recipe away from a warm bowl of contentment.
If I have errands or appointments in the late afternoon, I love to have a crock pot meal simmering at home so that dinner is ready when I get home hungry. The flavor in this soup is tremendous! The delicious chicken broth seasoned with cumin and green chilies makes you warm all over without creating a fire in your mouth. The white beans are tasty with the white chicken. Definitely a comfort food.
As long as you have some prepared chicken, the soup goes together quite quickly with canned goods from the pantry. Just chop a few onions and you’re good to go. It’s a one step slow cooker white chili recipe without any stove top cooking to start.
I always love well-seasoned food, and cumin is one of my favorite spices. So warm and yummy.
And beyond the basic broth, this recipe also has melted Monterey Jack cheese. You can add this right before serving and it stirs right in. If you wanted to, you could also skip the cheese for a lighter, brothier soup.

If you want your white chili even creamier, be sure to top with a dollop of sour cream!
There are so many wonderful chilis so I can never choose just one! Sometimes I want a classic chili. At other times I love my Sweet Potato Chili (I’ll be sure to post this in the future!), another crock pot favorite. But when I want a flavorful, brothy white chili nothing beats White Chicken Chili.
