Hey there! We’re Molly and Chelsea – the best friend, blogging duo behind Bests and Bites. We love health and fitness, mostly because we love dessert. And we live for pool days and trying new restaurants! If it were socially acceptable to hibernate all winter and watch Netflix all day we would. Especially if we had an unlimited supply of this healthy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili.
Give us a good book, our Insanity DVDs and a crock pot full of Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili and there’s a good chance we wouldn’t leave until March (or May if you live in Ohio!).
The day we made this chili was the best day of the week. It’s hearty, zippy and feel-good, but healthy at the same time. And it’s bursting at the seams with comforting flavor.
Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili for days!
So how does this all come together, you ask? Easy! Throw it in the slow cooker. The only trick is to get out your blender and mix a cup of the chicken broth with the yogurt to get it blended together. If you just dump the yogurt in the pot it will be lumpy and won’t mix well. When you blend it with the stock it turns the yogurt into a smooth consistency that easily mixes with the rest of the soup.
You’re going to be amazed how easy this is. You might even think you’re doing it wrong. But you’re not!
And just so you can mentally prepare yourself, you will need a giant bowl or mug, all the delicious healthy toppings (because we love toppings), a ridiculously comfy couch and Netflix (obvi).
Oh, and about 8 containers to meal prep and enjoy this addictingly healthy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili for the rest of the week.
Another great recipe with beans is our healthy and delicious one pot Black Bean Soup with Lime Salsa. Give both recipes a try and come back here to tell us which one you liked best!
