Slow Cooker White Chicken and Corn Chili

In the dead of winter, there is nothing more comforting than coming home to a steaming bowl of chili. Instead of combining ground beef with a typical thick, tomato base, this white chicken and corn chili is a healthier, lighter take on a winter classic.

Mashing white kidney beans with a fork before adding them to the slow cooker along with the rest of the ingredients adds texture and heartiness to this trimmed-down chili. The boneless, skinless chicken breasts are a healthy, lean protein that won’t leave you missing the ground chuck. While this chili cuts corners in the calorie department, it sure doesn’t skimp on flavor – jalapeños and a bit of cayenne pepper add just the right amount of kick.

Sprinkle shredded cheese on top (even slimmed-down chili needs cheese), serve with your favorite tortilla chips, find the fuzziest blanket, and enjoy the perfect accompaniment to a frigid winter night.
