Rise to the Top with Creamy White Chicken Chili

Rise to the Top with Creamy White Chicken Chili

What’s great about the winter time? Slow cooking that’s what. What’s great about slow cooking? Just about everything. The longer your food has time to cook, the more developed the flavors get. Not only that but you can throw everything together in one pot, go about your day and you have a great meal ready later. I know this isn’t anything new because I’m sure 99.9% of you have at least eaten a meal from a slow cooker. I’m planning on getting one of those air fryer/pressure cookers when I get around to it. The future is now and looks amazing!

One of my favorite recipes to make in the slow cooker is chili. I usually make a turkey chili, but was inspired by this chicken chili recipe and was not disappointed. Give it a try and leave a comment if you liked it or tell me what are some of your favorite slow cooked meals.
