SLOW COOKER CREAMY WHITE CHICKEN CHILI

SLOW COOKER CREAMY WHITE CHICKEN CHILI
The inspiration came from a combination of a previous recipe of mine, and this recipe from The Cookie Rookie.  Her website is amazing!  Originally I had planned to make this a stovetop soup, but I had this brand new slow cooker from my brother (birthday present), so I figured I’d convert it!

A lot of creamy white chicken chili recipes don’t have corn in them, but I added some here because the subtle sweetness goes really well with the heat level from the green chiles.
