White Chili with Chicken Recipe

Until recently I had never made White Chili with Chicken before!  I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make and how fast my family devoured it!!   I adapted this recipe from a Gooseberry Patch recipe I found online.  You could also prepare this White Chili with Chicken recipe in your Crock Pot, on low for 4-6 hours.  Check out my Turkey Chili recipe for a different twist on this recipe!

Crock Pot Chili Recipes: Spanish Style Chili

Spanish Style Crock pot chili

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine posted a  photo of special Spanish Style Chili on facebook. It looked amazing, so much so that I immediately messaged her and asked her for the recipe so I could post it for you.  It sounds easy to make, which is important in my book, and from what I heard it tastes amazing.  When I remember early in the day to throw dinner in the crock pot, it sure makes dinner time much easier.

Turkey Chili Recipe

This recipe is very similar to the White Chili with Chicken I posted earlier.  You can make this recipe with either turkey or chicken, depending on your preference.   Personally, I don’t like any kind of chili beans, kidney beans, pinto beans or great northern beans.  However, I have had a long standing love of butter beans since I was a little girl.  Instead of my having to go through and pick out the beans in every spoonful, I substituted the great northern beans in this recipe with large white butter beans.  I have to say, I loved the way it turned out!!  So much easier to eat, when I don’t have to worry about picking out all the beans.

Easy Chili Recipe

I found this recipe several years ago, in a Sandra Lee Semi Homemade Cookbook and loved it.  I had mentioned before, that I don’t like chili beans! Since this recipe is an easy Chili recipe that doesn’t call for beans it is by far my favorite go to chili recipe when I am in a hurry. My family loves to pile it on top of hot dogs! I’m not a hot dog kind of girl, but they love it!  If your family prefers a heartier Chili with beans, check out our Best Chili Recipes page.

Football Fans: Game Day Chili Recipe

So….today is a big day in the world of college football from what I hear.  I’m not much of a fan, but my husband is a huge Buckeye Fan and he loves “game day,” food.  This recipe is so easy and yummy.  I personally don’t like hot dogs or chili beans –  so instead of a chili dog, this recipe makes the perfect bowl of chili for me.
