Salsa verde is one of my favorite flavor profiles - I just love the combination of tangy tomatillos with spicy jalapenos and cilantro. For that reason, it is one of my favorite things to use for a recipe base. This simple slow cooker chili is built around the flavors of salsa verde paired with white beans, quinoa, and some extra flavor from poblano and jalapeno peppers. You can make it as spicy as you like by choosing a spicy salsa and using extra jalapenos or poblanos. For a milder version, substitute regular green bell peppers for the poblano peppers.
