Until dad made this while I was visiting, I had never had a white chili, or a chicken chili. This is now a favorite of mine! Note: I used entire chicken, and omitted the fritos. I got the Walmart salsa to use and it was very good (yes, they have the exact flavoring the recipe requires).

yield 4 -6 generous servings
method Slow Cooker Crock Pot
