Not your momma’s chili! An Easy Crock Pot White Chicken Chili filled with southwestern flavors that will tease your taste buds. Plus a surprise easy cooking method for chicken!
A couple weeks ago a rush of controversy came through our town and got people all riled up. It ended up all over the news.
On October 30th, about 15 minutes from my house, a new church will open. Now I know, it doesn’t seem like it should be “big news” but the church is The Church of Lucifer. (for those of you who don’t know, Lucifer is another name for Satan)
I live in what’s known as the “bible belt” so having a church of lucifer planted right smack in the middle is definitely big news. They are opening the day before Halloween, which got even more publicity. People have been leaving hate online as well as hateful signs in front of the soon to be church and are even talking about picketing outside.
To be honest, I was definitely a little shocked to hear that there would be a church of lucifer right in my backyard. But I think what I’m more shocked about is the response. The anger, hate, disgust, and overall lack of love baffles me.
Just because someone does not believe what we believe does not give us the right to hate, judge, criticize, or attack that person. We are called to LOVE. Love overcomes everything! The reason people still talk about Jesus today is because he loved relentlessly. He walked into brothels, loved the murders and spent time with the people who were the most despised. It would be like us hanging out with the drug dealers, kidnappers, sex traffickers of our day and age. He loved them and radically changed their hearts! Love can’t help but change. I posted something on Instagram the other day that I’m still thinking about “Religion Says: God will love us if we change. The Gospel Says: God’s love change us. “
Let’s be changed by God’s love so that it overflows and helps change others. Hate does nothing but divide and create more hate, anger, and bitterness. Love heals!
I am nervous about this church and all it represents, but now we know where they are and can love them into the arms of God.
Ok, just some thoughts. SO, onto the recipe for today. This Easy Crock Pot White Chicken Chili.
Since we are in the midst of football season, cooler temperatures are finally coming, and well I’m just lazy so I thought an Easy Crock Pot Recipe was in order! And what better recipe for the fall than a chili! The more a chili sits the more the flavors soak in and become one, crock pots and chili were meant for each other.
Usually I’m a red meat kinda girl, at least in my chili, you know ground beef or bison. But today we are changing it up and going all White Chicken Chili on you. This Chili is filled with green chilis, deep earthy cumin, corn, quinoa, pinto beans, and chicken.
The best part is everything gets thrown into the Crock Pot, no sautéing or browning necessary. Even the raw chicken gets thrown into the Crock Pot whole. After it’s done cooking then I take the chicken out, dice it or shred it, throw it back in and you’re good to go! Top this chili with fresh avocado, smoked gouda cheese, and green onions! The rich flavor the Crock Pot adds to this Chili is incredible! Enjoy my friends Bon Appetite!Print
