White Chicken Chili

One of my favorite things to make is chili. Even though it's a 'cold' weather food, I like to make it all year long, especially in my crock pot! I found this pin and made some slight variations to it.

I gathered all my ingredients: 

3 cans of white beans 
1 can kidney beans
1 can diced tomatoes 
1/2 cup salsa 
2 tbsp taco seasoning 
1/2 tsp cumin 
1 tsp oregano 
1 chicken breast (large)

I added all the ingredients to the crock pot and mixed them together.

I added 1 large chicken breast and nestled it into the rest of the mixture.

I put it on low before I went to work and by the time I got home, it had been cooking for about 10-11 hours.

At that point, I took the chicken out, shredded it, then added it back to the mixture. I also stirred in 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup skim milk.

We like to eat our chili on top of rice, so I let the chili cook while I made brown rice. (It took about 30 min for the rice to cook- I left it on low for about 15 minutes, then turned it off for the rest of the time, but left the lid on)

I topped it with a little cheese and it was good to go!

It turned out pretty well, although next time I would add a little more taco seasoning and possibly another small chicken breast.

This serves about 6 (or 4 if you're really hungry!)

(Excuse the mess on our counters... and the low quality of my pictures- my phone is really hit or miss!)
