This Keto White Chicken Chili is an amazing comfort food for the changing seasons. It’s filling, tasty and can easily be a crockpot/freezer meal!
Sometimes it’s hard for people to understand how you can enjoy chili without beans…but it’s easier than you might think!
Throwing in some extra chicken and veggies adds even more flavor. This chili is made with shredded chicken, peppers and spicy pepper jack cheese. It’s not as thick as traditional chili, but it’s loaded with flavor…and I promise you it’s filling!
This is also an excellent meal to make in the crockpot and of course the perfect freezer meal.
To make in the crockpot just add all the ingredients except the heavy cream and cook for 4 hours on low, shred the chicken, return to the crock pot and stir in the heavy cream. Just put it in a large freezer ziplock bag and when you’re ready to make it put it in a bowl of cold water to thaw it out.
