Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili
Staff Writer

Wow. This soup was incredible! It kind of reminds me of the chicken tortilla-type soup you would get at an authentic Mexican restaurant. The aroma when I walked in was so fragrant! The best part of this recipe (besides how mouthwatering it was), is that it's so easy and it doesn't take much time at all to put together.

I would like to thank my friend Scarlett for providing me with the inspiration for the recipe I present to you today. I put my own twist on it to make it into a soup I could cook all day instead of for just four hours.
