Menu Monday: Easy White Chili

It's definitely becoming fall up here in West Michigan & one of my favorite fall foods is chili. The possibilities are endless. This is probably the easiest chili recipe EVER and can be made on the stovetop or in a crockpot. The bonus? Only 5 ingredients!


  • 2 large or 4 small chicken breasts, diced up & cooked.
  • 1 large jar of great northern beans, liquid included.
  • 16 oz jar of your favorite salsa (this jar is too big but I didn't use it all). The hotter the salsa, the more heat your chili will have.
  • 1-2 tsp cumin
  • 8 oz shredded monterey jack cheese

Dump everything into a big sauce pan and heat it on low, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is all melted and the chili is hot.
You need to watch it so it doesn't burn to the bottom of the pan.  Trust me. I've learned this one the hard way and nothing sucks more than burnt cheese.  If you cook this in a crock pot, you could probably start with the chicken raw but I've never done this.  You might need more liquid, too.  When I crockpot it, I still cook the chicken first and then just heat it on low for a few hours.

Serve with some tortilla chips and maybe a salad if you're feeling the need for some greens.  You can add more cheese on top, sour cream, whatever floats your boat.

Enjoy!  Do you have a favorite 1 pot, minimal ingredient recipe you want to share?
