The BEST White Chicken Chili Recipe

I love soups and stews this time of year. They really hit the spot on chilly nights. This Ultimate Crack Chicken Chili has been on repeat in our house. It is CRAZY good! White chicken chili loaded with cheddar, bacon, and ranch. YUM! The best part about this whole recipe is that it is ready to eat in about 20 minutes. Just dump everything in the pot, bring to a boil and simmer. Easy peasy! Whip up some cornbread and you are set!

How to Make The Ultimate Crack Chicken Chili

The key to getting this white chicken chili on the table in 20 minutes is to use a rotisserie chicken. I used a whole rotisserie chicken. I always have a rotisserie chicken in the freezer for quick meals like this. If you are making this during the holidays, you could definitely use some leftover turkey or a combination of cooked chicken and turkey.

To make The Ultimate Crack Chicken Chili melt some butter in the bottom of a Dutch oven or large stockpot. Add some flour and whisk to combine. Slowly add chicken broth and half-and-half to the pot. Finally add the chicken meat, white beans, corn, green chiles, cumin, ranch dressing mix, cooked bacon, cheddar cheese. Bring it to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes. You are basically just heating everything up in the pot and digging in!

I used a whole 1-oz packet of Ranch dressing mix. If you find Ranch dressing mix to be too salty, feel free to reduce the amount to your personal preference.

Can I Make The Ultimate Crack Chicken Chili in the Crockpot?

You can definitely make this Crack Chicken Chili in the slow cooker. You will need to still melt the butter and flour on the stove and whisk in the liquid. Once that is done, dump everything in the slow cooker and let it do its thing.

If you are making this in the slow cooker, you can use two or three uncooked chicken breasts in place of the cooked chicken. Once the soup is done, shred the chicken and put it back in the crockpot. You can still use the cooked chicken meat, but fresh chicken breasts are an option for the slow cooker.

Can White Chicken Chili Be Frozen?

This makes a good amount of white chicken chili. We usually have some leftover. I LOVE to freeze it for a quick meal later. I usually divide the chili between a few plastic containers and pop them in the freezer. When I'm ready to eat the leftover Crack Chicken Chili, I thaw the containers in the refrigerator overnight and either pop it in the microwave or heat it up on the stove.

If you don't have disposable plastic containers, feel free to use some freezer ziplock bags. They work great and don't take up a lot of space in the freezer!
