White Chicken Chili Recipe: Using black beans, instead of white, and adding a few pantry staples, you can make this creamy soup in the crockpot or stovetop!

My husband BEGS me to make this White Chicken Chili, all of the time, and I can’t say I argue with that. It is delish, and it’s the perfect weeknight meal! I first saw the slow cooker recipe from Budget Savvy Diva, and added/removed some of the ingredients to fit our taste bud preferences. Then Iย  made mine stove-top, for the days I’m not “on-top of things,” with planning ahead for a slow cooker meal. But you HAVE to check out all of her recipes. I’m telling you… completely mouth-watering!

So are you ready for this SUPER quick, SUPER tasty, white chicken chili recipe? (Btw…I’m totally scarfing it down while I’m typing this.)

White Chicken Chili Recipe

The full recipe is below, but I like to do a walk-through with photos to help out in case you’re more of a visual cook.

Cook your diced chicken breast in your soup pot until it’s fully cooked. (I don’t use any oil… just plain ole cook it in a nonstick skillet.) OR, use a fully cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to save even more time!

Once the chicken is fully cooked, add the remainder of the ingredients in to the pot.

Heat over medium heat, stirring often to evenly combine the ingredients and help “melt,” the cream cheese.

Once heated through, and the cream cheese is melted thoroughly… serve this warm creamy white chicken chili in a bow. A BIG bowl! (Trust me, or you’ll be going back for thirds. It’s just better to have more than enough so you don’t have to get back up and refill. Yes?)

You can serve alongside saltine crackers, our favorite side salad, or my boy’s favorite… a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, made this special way.
