Creamy Southwest Chicken Chili (Slow Cooker)

Whether you call this creamy dish a chili or hearty chicken stew, it’s definitely a winner.

Can I prep this ahead to simplify my morning?

Yes! Food prep doesn’t need to be mega creative or time-consuming. Instead, it should be practical and something that simplifies healthy eating. This slow-cooked Creamy Southwest Chicken Chili recipe can be prepped the night before by adding all the slow cooker ingredients to your slow cooker dish, covering the dish and refrigerating overnight. In the morning, cook as directed.
