I was too lazy to make Cornbread or Skillet Cornbread, so I went with tortilla chips instead, lol

Notes:

  • I have seen recipes that puree part of the beans to make a thicker, creamier chili. That is completely up to you.
  • You can also add the sour cream/Greek yogurt to the whole batch to make it creamier if that is what you are going for.
  • To kick up the heat add a fresh jalapeno or two with the onions and garlic, maybe even a serrano pepper. 😉

In the end I chose to go with a simple, straightforward, Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili with minimal fuss and lots of flavor! Yes, it does have more of a soup consistency and that totally works for me.
