Tasty Tuesday: Slow Cooker White Chili

whitechili

There’s a good chance it’s going to rain where I live this week, and with the rain will come cooling temperatures. And nothing tastes better than cup of warm chili on a cold day! I just finished up a FREE 5 Day Challenge group where we exchanged crock pot recipes. This is one crock-pot recipe that is always on my go-to list when I need dinner to take care of itself! And the best part is: this is also a freezer meal!

TO MAKE IT  SPICY: sub in canned jalapenos for the green chili.

TO FREEZE: After cooking the chicken, add ingredients to a freezer safe container EXCEPT: beans, lime juice, and cilantro. This will freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to eat, transfer to slow cooker and cook 7-9 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high.
