Why We Love It

In a modern twist on a game-day classic, cauliflower turns into the surprisingly creamy base for this white bean and chicken chili with mild poblano peppers. Serve sprinkled with sliced green onions and shredded mild cheddar or Monterey jack.

Slow Cooker White Chili


¦ 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

¦ 1 bag dried cannellini beans, picked through

¦ 1 bag frozen sweet white corn

¦ 2 poblano peppers (or 2 green bell peppers), chopped

Arrange chicken in the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker. Top with beans, corn, poblanos, cauliflower, onion, broth, cumin and chili powder.
