White Chicken Chili
This is an awesome easy chili recipe passed on to me from "Mom Dyk". Mom Dyk is my husbands 2nd mom so to speak.
When he moved here from the other side of the state and became friends with her son Scott, she took him in too. He doesn't have any family in the area, so he ate Sunday dinners there, and holidays, etc.
Once we met, she let me into the circle too. 🙂 I love this recipe because you really just put it all together and let it go in the crock pot.
I now call this "award winning" because it recently won a chili cook-off! I really couldn't believe it!
If I was trying to win, I would have done some super special chili with a secret ingredient, but it was a fundraiser for church. Not that I didn't want to win, I just never expected it with this easy of a recipe!
Everyone got to eat lots of chili, and then pay to vote for their favorite. I was shocked! That tells you how good this recipe is!! I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.
The only prep for this recipe is cooking the chicken before hand. I like to poach chicken, it keeps it really tender. But, you can go super cheater style (like I do sometimes) and just grab a rotisserie chicken and cut it up.
- Whether you cook your own chicken or purchase a rotisserie one, prep it the night before so you can dump and go in the morning.

Oh I love the story behind this yummy chili and your husband's 2nd mom.
Congrats on the award!
This looks so delicious! A great dish anytime but especially on a chilly day!
I love that idea! Thanks for sharing, I will try that the next time I make it. I do have other chili recipes that I use corn in, but I've never thought about it with this one, especially white shoepeg corn, I'll have to look into that.
Thanks for sharing your recipe! I am making it for to ight's dinner. I decided to add 2 cans of Green Giant White Shoepeg Corn. I used this in a different white chicken chili recipe and we really enjoyed the addition!
Horace! You don't have a crockpot?? 🙂 Yes, get one. Even though you could still do this on the stove top. If I had to eat one thing everyday, it for sure would be mexican. Love enchiladas too!
Thank you for stopping by and pinning my recipe! Don't you just love pinterest? It's my go to for searching things these days.
Thank you Audrey! I really enjoy your link party!
Connie, thank you so much for pointing this out! I obviously missed an ingredient. It's fixed now. It calls for 1 tsp, but I usually add a little extra because I really like the flavor of cumin.
In the description, I noticed that cumin was mentioned as one of the ingredients. When I was looking at the ingredients listed, it does not list cumin or how much. This recipe looks great and I am anxious to try it.
I love White Chicken Chili and it is perfect for Fall. Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesdays. I hope you will join us next week.
This recipe looks wonderful. My family loves chili. Stopping by from Tasty Tuesday. Pinned!
