I have tried several White Chili recipes over the years. I have found several recipes that we like, but this one has become my favorite. I cut it out of a magazine several years ago. I do not remember what magazine it came from but it is a great recipe.
I like this recipe because it is a crock-pot recipe and it uses dried beans instead of canned beans. I am realizing how much better dried beans are. The texture and taste are just better than canned. You can change the seasoning around a little if you like it spicier. My husband likes it spicier but the kids and I like it just the way it is.
Slow Cooked White Chili with Chicken

Soak beans overnight.
Drain beans. Place in slow cooker with chicken, onion, garlic, oregano, salt, soup, and water. Cook on low for 8 hours, or until beans are done. Stir in cumin, hot pepper sauce, and chilies. Serve with sour cream and cheese.
