Crockpot White Chicken Chili (Cream Cheese) - A Bountiful Love

Crockpot White Chicken Chili (Cream Cheese)

Here's an easy, frugal, and flavorful crockpot recipe for busy families. We all know that chicken is one of the most budget-friendly meats that you can buy. You can buy a whole chicken for less than $5 at Aldi. And speaking of a whole chicken, this recipe uses simple ingredients. I used my left-over chicken from my Instant Pot whole Chicken Recipe, the rest of the ingredients cost me less than $5 as some of the ingredients were already in my pantry. 

See the details below:

Broth- I used the left-over broth from the Instant Pot Whole Chicken Recipe.

Onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper - On hand in my pantry stock.

Ingredients I bought from Aldi:  3 cans of cannellini beans ($1.50), cream cheese (.99 cents), cilantro (.35 cents), and a small can of green chilies (.75 cents).

This recipe was so easy to put together and so flavorful. The only thing that I will change next time is reducing the amount of chicken to the broth to only 2 cups. But it is totally up to you since I prefer a thick and chunkier soup. I served this chicken chili soup with a warm loaf of Cheddar and Jalapeno Bread.


1 lb chicken (or use left-over chicken)

3 cups broth- I used homemade broth

half onion, chopped

2 teaspoon chopped garlic

3 (14 oz) cans of cannellini beans

1 small can of green chili or enchilada sauce

1 8oz cream cheese, softened

1 cup chopped cilantro

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp dried oregano

salt and pepper to taste

Optional: red pepper flakes


Add all of the ingredients to your crockpot and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8 hrs. 

Serve with any bread or crackers that you prefer!
