I have been wanting to do a white bean chili for quite some time. Problem is, I wasn’t sure how to make a white bean chili. So naturally, I ask my husband who is the chili expert in the house. He also created the delicious sweet potato chili that is already on the blog. I was very pleased with his recipe for this white bean chili as well. This white bean chili recipe is so simple and it can be made in the crock pot when you are not even home! To me, those are the best kinds of recipes.
I just love my crock pot. I try to make as many things in the crock pot as I can.
Make this in the crock pot when you are not even home!
- 4 cups white beans (or 2 cans)
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 2 cups fingerling potatoes chopped
- 1 jalapeno diced with seeds removed (If you like more heat, keep the seeds in)
- 3-4 garlic cloves minced
- 1/2 red pepper peeled
- 1/2 yellow onion chopped
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- Throw all the ingredients in the crock pot and cook it on high for about 6 hours. You can do less, but I feel like the more a soup cooks, the deeper the flavors develop.
If you don't have a crock pot, you can also make this on the stove top in the same manner. However, I would not suggest doing it on the stove top when you are asleep or not home.
