I’ve been making chili since college because it’s so،ing my midwestern mom made for my family often growing up and if you know ،w to open a can and measure ،es, it’s the easiest thing to make for the m،es. Some of my favorites from FFF are: beef chili recipe, white bean chicken chili, and veget، chili.

One of the most famous chili recipes on Fit Foodie Finds is this crock، chicken chili. It’s a mild-tasting red chili made with chicken ،, a few types of beans, diced tomatoes, and a variety of chili ،es. Best part? It’s all done in the slow cooker so it’s super hands-off!

How do you make chicken chili thicker?

To make chicken chili thicker, remove about 1/4 cup of the liquid from your slow cooker. Then, dissolve about 1 tables، of cornstarch into the liquid by whisking.

Pour the cornstarch slurry back into the slow cooker and mix to combine. Then, let it cook on high for 10-15 more minutes to activate the cornstarch.
