Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    This time of year, my slow cooker has a permanent place on my countertop. There is nothing more wonderful than to come home on a cold day and smell a pot of something delicious simmering away, ready for my family to dive in and warm up! One family favourite is this White Chicken Chili.
  • Tip 2
    Traditional chili is always a wintertime favorite, but my kids’ very favorite is this creamy and not-too-spicy version. It smells AMAZING while cooking and everyone loves serving up a bowlful with their favourite fixin’s on top.
  • Tip 3
    The best part about this recipe is there is very little prep! You simply cut up your chicken, drain your beans, then throw all the other ingredients in your slow cooker! That gets bonus points from this busy mom!!
