This recipe. Yum. I could eat it every night. Chicken breast, lots of spice, and the perfect tang from a yummy homemade green salsa that packs the broth with flavor. By using a combination of peppers, tomatillos, onion, and garlic in the broth and the cooking it low and slow in the crockpot, you build a rich and deeply flavored broth that makes this low carb white chicken chili amazing. And since this chili lives and dies with the broth, it's important that it really sings.
The next most important thing to think about when you make this Slow Cooker Low Carb White Chicken Chili is the toppings. Since the soup itself is just chicken and broth, the toppings are where you can bring it to life. I recommend always starting with shredded cheese and avocado. Then you can add cilantro, sour cream, red onions, fresh jalapenos, radishes, or even some shredded cabbage. And if you are looking for some crunch like you would normally get from tortilla chips, consider some pork rinds. You wil be surprised at how good they taste with chili.
