White Bean Chicken Chili

Football season brings on the tailgate classics. This White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe has been a favorite of ours for years. I find I’m partial to it over traditional chili because of its freshness with the lime juice being added at the end.  I’m a brand loyalist when it comes to canned beans so I always use Bush’s White Cannellini Beans. Feel free to substitute if you wish, but using them always guarantees the taste and consistency we love!

Serve up with a side of homemade cornbread and you’ve got a game winner every time!

I am in no way affiliated with Bush’s Beans at this time. We use them and love them.

What A Crock!

 

I love my CrockPot .  Particularly in the cooler seasons its my favorite kitchen appliance. Soups to stews, roasts to chickens, cakes, breads, I can do em all in this little beauty. And all, without  paying much attention to it.  Now I ask you, what  man in your life could you say that about ? (I know)  Plus, using my CrockPot helps me save money, and we all like to save. It uses so little electricity (less than your stove-top or oven) and even the least expensive cuts of meats can come out fork tender and delish!

This month, I’m going to be posting  some of my best CrockPot recipes and I’m inviting you all to the party! I know you all have at least one favorite recipe. Whether its a party dip, a tailgating chili,  or even your favorite  pot roast.  Link up with me here and share those fall comfort foods that your CrockPot makes that much easier and that much yummier!
