An easy Crock Pot meal on a cold winter day. I always make the (Sweet Corn Bread found on this site) to go with this dish. I typically let it simmer half a day. Depending on the crowd, I add a can of white corn and a dash or two of Tabasco.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is different from any other white chicken chili recipe we've tried. It's on the mild side and creamy but where it differs is the addition of clove. When you first take a bite, you taste the seasoning and won't be able to put your finger on it. It's a secret ingredient that adds to the overall flavor of this one-pot chicken chili. Cheese and sour cream are great additions and make this richer and creamier. Great for a cold night!
