Slow Cooker Ranch White Chicken Chili |

This Slow Cooker Ranch White Chicken Chili is an instant favorite!  The slow cooker does so much to develop the rich savory broth – it’s my favorite part!  And don’t worry about the chilies, they aren’t spicy so you won’t end up with chili with a lot of heat.  In fact, there’s not any heat in this at all, but that could change instantly with the addition of a little ground habanero powder if you you like it spicy!  Y’all enjoy!

  1. I make white chili using ground chicken, pork, or turkey. Also with cannellini, mayocobas and chickpeas. Most all of my other ingredients are the same as yours. Absolutely cannot leave out the cumin because that just makes the chili zing. Really never thought of putting in the ranch mix. Maybe will try it next time.

  2. I like the idea of the ranch dressing. My chili is very similar, except I put in a can of dark red kidneys for color. Thanx for the recipe. PS, I didn’t realize there was trouble in river city. I have blogs that only show up when the writer has time or something to say. I knew you would be back eventually.

  3. gorgeous …. thanks for the recipe

  4. I have been looking for a fabulous white chili recipe to try, and this is it! Looks great!!

  5. to make the chili a little hotter add a LITTLE (be careful) white pepper……

  6. can you use a can of diced tomatoes also?

  7. Hi,
    I live in Australia and have no idea what Ranch dressing mix is?? So is there an alternative to this


    • Hmmm… A couple dashes of onion powered and garlic powder and a little salt should work just fine. The ranch dressing mix isn’t necessary, it just give it a punch of flavor.

  8. I bravely made this today and it was a huge hit with my family! I’m not very adventurous with my cooking but I decided to give this a try and hope for the best. As a mom of 3- I have to tell you how huge it is that everyone collectively agreed that dinner was delicious. I also found a great and easy to make corn bread recipe: box Corn Bread mix, box yellow cake mix follow ingredient instructions on back of both boxes, mix together and use the corn bread baking instructions. It comes out fluffier and sweeter

    Thanks again for sharing your awesome recipe!

  9. Made this last night… Delicious! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  10. Did you use frozen or thawed chicken?

  11. Excited to make this tomorrow! Is it spicy at all? I’m not a spicy food fan so I’m wondering if I should just do one can of green chiles? Thanks!

    Can I use a Rotisserie Chicken?

  13. I am making this tomorrow…can’t wait to try it! I see the chilies listed as going in initially with the chicken and then listed again added with corn, beans, etc… Can you tell me when you usually add them?

  14. Is there nutritional information on this recipe? It sounds delicious!

  15. I made this and it was fabulous as all of your recipes are!!! Thanks Stacey – you knocked it out of the park again.


  16. I am thinking about using this recipe for a chili cookoff at church Sun…since I know there will be mostly the red chili types.Any suggestions? Is it correct with no chili powder? I wanted something more on the mild side since children will be eating it too. thanks

  17. I love putting the ranch in there, I can just taste this it looks so good!

  18. Can I cook this on high? If so, for how long? Thanks!

    I tried this without adding any salt, pepper or sour cream and tasted very well seasoned. The chicken was so tender and juicy I ended up going back for seconds. Of all the dishes I have made my wife told me to save this recipe for future. I guess I’ll be making this again! Thank you!!
