Crock Pot White Bean Chicken Chili

Crock Pot White Bean Chicken Chili

This is one of my favorite crock pot meals.  I can get everything ready the night before and turn the crock pot on in the morning.  It is the BEST feeling to come home after a busy day to dinner already waiting for you!  This is great for anyone who has bad acid reflux/heartburn and cannot handle all the red sauce in typical chili.  This is a meal you can make a big batch of and freeze some in small containers so you have home made meals ahead of time.  If you have never made white bean chicken chili before please give it a try! You will love it!

  • (15 oz.) cans white beans, rinsed and drained
