Tailgate Tuesday: White Chicken Chili

(note: Tailgate Tuesday posts are special features written for the SideLion Report from us gals of The Thrifty Table. Check in every Tuesday for a new recipe perfect for that week's tailgate party!)

We loved last week's Buffalo Chicken Dip and thought that we would continue with another spicy dish for this week. For the Dallas Cowboys game we are making a flavorful White Chicken Chili. With the weather getting colder in Detroit you will enjoy this warm meal while watching the game at home!

White Chicken Chili
1 lb. chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 medium onion, diced
1 garlic clove, diced
1 1/2 C water
1 t. chicken base (or replace water with chicken stock)
1 can of white northern beans, drained (or pinto beans)
1 can of corn, drained
1 can of tomatoes (use a kind with green chilies for a kick)
1/4 C. red pepper, diced (or green or jalapeno peppers)
1 t. each of cumin, paprika, and chili powder

Cook onion and garlic in a pan with oil. Add chicken and cook until done. Add pepper and season with salt and pepper. Cook together for a few minutes and then add to a slow cooker. Add the rest of the ingredients to the slow cooker. Cook on high for 2-3 hours, or low for 4-5 hours. Serve with cheese, tortilla chips, and sour cream. Enjoy!
