Another favorite dish to prepare while it’s cold out is chili. But not just any chili…change things up with this creamy white chicken chili from The Chunky Chef that tastes as amazing as it looks. Plus once you grab all the ingredients, it’s a cinch to prepare in your slow cooker!

Be sure to tell us how it turns out!
