Slow Cooker White Chili


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into cubes
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans white beans (great northern or cannellini), drained and rinsed
  • 3 large poblano peppers, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 2½ cups chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons masa harina
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1 lime, cut into six wedges


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Spread chicken breast cubes into the bottom of your slow cooker crock add white beans, poblano peppers, onion, jalapeño pepper, and garlic.
  2. Stir chicken stock, masa harina, cumin, garlic, and salt together in a bowl to dissolve the masa completely; pour into the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on High for 4 to 5 hours.
  4. Ladle chili into bowls; garnish with cilantro and cheese. Squeeze a lime wedge over the chili to serve.
Mealthy tip:

Execute your prep the night before you want to make this, so you can just dump everything into your cooker and get going on your morning.

I love poblano peppers so any time I have a chance to cook with them I'm happy! I have traditionally used them in a sauce, and they taste equally good in this chili! Adds the perfect amount of heat without being too spicy. I also love the garlic and cumin flavors. Such a perfect recipe for those cold winter days.

One of my favorite chili recipes! We used cannellini beans and shredded chicken. Super pleased with the results, I ate about 3 bowls in one sitting. Very good.

Obsessed with this slow cooker Mexican white chili. White beans are so underrated. I prefer to use them in all my chilis because they give off such great flavor. The poblano chiles are also a favorite. My husband always begs me to make this on game day!

Delicious white bean chili! Almost reminds me of a delicious Mexican-inspired chicken soup with the cilantro and jack cheese. This chili has a whole lot of flavor with the onion and peppers. Definitely one of my favorite dishes I've made thus far.
