Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

I’m starting to realize this might be my very first savory recipe on here, and what a first it is. Its getting cold in Boston, too cold for fall, and so naturally its time to break out the crock pot. This recipe can cook all day, or in as little as 4 hours – either way, it comes out delicious. I made a big pot for Marissa and I and it will last both of us over a week of lunches, which as hard working young professionals, we love.

Please note – I don’t believe in substituting deliciousness to make things healthier. This recipe is NOT healthy. If you choose to lighten it up, be my guest, but I promise, if you let yourself cheat, this will make your cheat day.
