anyone got a good recipe? i tried making it today in my slow cooker and i liked it, but would've preferred it to come out thicker. i got it from this recipe:
Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili Recipe from Betty Crocker
i want to make one with chicken (not ground meat), corn and white beans like that recipe calls for but can't find one that makes it thicker. this one was a bit soupy. also, i'd like to find a recipe that uses dry beans because i don't really like using canned food. i used frozen corn instead of canned corn in this recipe but didn't try dry beans because i wasn't sure how to do it in a slow cooker (i need the instructions in the recipe, lol).

try stirring in some maza flour or corn starch to thicken it up at the end. mix either with cool water first. a little goes a long way, use sparingly.

thanks x. i had thought about that... i have some leftovers. i will reheat them over the stove and try adding a little to see if it thickens up a bit when i eat it later this week.

that's what i'm talking about!!! thank you! i'll try this (and add corn, lol). after i add some corn starch to my current leftovers, of course. and then i will try this recipe and see if i can adapt it to a slow cooker since sometimes that's an easier method of cooking for me, depending on what's going on in my day.

You also might want to add some shredded Monterey Jack to the mix. Makes for a richer, thicker chili.
