Tailgate For The Win | Crockpot White Chicken Chili


Did anyone guess that this would be my last Super Bowl LI recipe involving the word “chili”? Yep, this Crockpot White Chicken Chili is by far my most popular recipe ever! And for good reason… it is the freaking bomb, if I do say so myself. We make this recipe all the time and it never disappoints!

Other great things about this recipe: it makes 6-8 servings, so you can feed a good amount of people, it’s super easy to make, and you can let the crockpot do the work all day while you get ready for the big game!

I highly recommend whipping this up for your Super Bowl party this year! And then once a week after that. : ) (A great meatless alternative — this Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili! Also delish.)

Crockpot White Chicken Chili

Serves 6-8 people

Prep time: 20-25 minutes

Cook time: 6-8 hours on low, or 4 hours on high


  • 2-3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (~1.5 lb)
  • 2 -15.5 oz cans of reduced-sodium Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 -15 oz can sweet golden corn or 15 oz frozen corn
  • 1 -4.5 oz can chopped green chiles
  • 2 -14.5 oz cans reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 medium sweet yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1.5 tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: plain Greek yogurt, chunky salsa, and reduced-fat shredded cheese, Beanitos chips
Plain Greek yogurt is an awesome substitute for sour cream as a yummy, healthy topping for this chili, and many other Mexican-style dishes! I used it in almost all of my Super Bowl recipes this year! Like I said, it is the MVP of healthy substitutions.


1) Add chicken breasts, Great Northern beans, corn, green chiles, chopped onion, minced garlic, and spices to the crockpot. Add 2 cans of chicken broth and squeeze the juice of one lime over the top of the mixture, then stir to combine ingredients.

2) Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4 hours.

3) Before removing from crockpot, stir ingredients thoroughly. Use two forks to shred the chicken, and then let cook for another 30 minutes or so.

Serve chicken chili with desired toppings. I love mine with crushed Beanitos chips, plain Greek yogurt, low-fat shredded cheese, and hot salsa!

Avocado is also an amazing addition! This chili makes great leftovers for work lunches! 
What a perfect Super Bowl Sunday spread! Oops – someone got hungry and snagged a sweet potato nacho 😉 Can you blame them!?

  1. We finally got the chance to try this today. It was a hit, even with my little girls! Thanks for the recipe.

  2. After seeing Crockpot White Chili on your Instagram feed last week I was inspired to try this recipe today.

    I’m happy to report it was a hit! My 6 year old twins (who aren’t usually big fans of chicken) and husband said they preferred it over “red chili”.
    I’ll try to send you a pic of it in their Minnie and Mickey bowls. 😜

    So easy and delicious.
