Fall weather means that it is time for warm, comforting recipes. A baby in the house means that it is time for quick and easy recipes. I've never been a fan of the crockpot, but I'm trying to learn to love it. This weekend, Nate and I made White Bean and Chicken Chili.
It was delicious, but not as quick and easy as I had hoped. I would definitely make it again, but I would simplify things and make a few modifications. Why use bone-in chicken when you can use boneless? Why brown the chicken (and dirty another pan!) when it's going to be cooking for 6 hours? The chili was a little on the soupy side, so I would reduce the amount of chicken broth and definitely not add water. Even though it is a white BEAN chili, I would remove one can of beans and use a can of hominy instead. We added corn this time, but I prefer hominy. Finally, I would add a little more spice. Basically, I would rewrite the recipe!
