Red Chicken Chili in the Slow Cooker Recipe

I really like this recipe for red chicken chili in the slow cooker because I don’t always have precooked ground meat in the freezer to throw into the slow cooker for a chili.  Sometimes, I don’t want a white chicken chili.  This is a very typical chili recipe for the slow cooker using chicken breasts in place of the ground meat.  No pre-cooking required!

It is funny!  I fixed a bowl for my teenage son to eat.  When I handed it to him, I asked him if he wanted a fork or spoon.  He gave me an odd look then said, “More chips!”  LOL
