My Favorite Fall Recipe

What do you do when you work full time but still want to eat a nice, home-cooked meal?

The answer? Crock-Pots!

My favorite Crock-Pot recipe is for white bean chicken chili. It’s so delicious, easy and inexpensive. Who doesn’t love a good recipe that’s tasty, simple and light on your wallet? This white bean chicken chili doesn’t disappoint.

In the fall and winter, this is my go-to recipe. It will only take you five minutes to put everything in the pot, and then you leave it and let it cook all day. When you come home, the aroma in your house will be unbelievable!

Here’s the recipe:

  • 3–4 chicken breasts (frozen or thawed)
  • 2 cans of Rotel
  • 2–3 cans of white great northern beans (liquid and all)
  • 12 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup of onion
  • Cumin to taste

Put everything in a Crock-Pot on low for 8 to 10 hours. Once the chicken is cooked, pull apart with a fork and shred. Serve with Fritos and sour cream.

    Sounds good! Crock pot manufacturers recommend thawing meat first because frozen meat spends too much time in the bacterial danger zone of 40-140 degrees.

      I put frozen in mine all the time, and in almost 35 yrs doing it this way I’ve never had a problem.

    Mmmm! nJust saw this recipe above for Crockpot Chicken Chili and I’ll have to try it. Any other yummy recipes on a budget you want to share Rachel?

  • Brittany Ericson

    For an even cheaper version… Use chicken thighs, homemade beans(I used Cannellini), off-brand Rotel and only 8oz cheddar! Served it with yogurt and avocados! Super yummy!!

    It turned out real good, even though I forgot the cheese and the cumin. Thanks for the recipe.
