Slow Cooker Chicken Chili with Greens and Beans

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili with Greens and Beans

MamaMcGreevy 0

"Beans, greens and chicken come together with tomatoes in a thick and creamy broth. This recipe, as with most chili recipes, doesn't need to be exact and can be altered to fit your taste or what you have on hand. The choice of greens is up to you - my first choice is kale, but you can use spinach, turnip greens, collards or a combination (my favorite)! If you use fresh greens, wash and chop them very fine before adding them to the slow cooker."

I can't pinpoint it, but I didn't love it. Made exactly as it says, except for I added 3/4 c. of frozen corn.

I thought this was a good recipe for a one pot meal. I substituted fat free evaporated milk for the heavy cream. It has the same thickening/creaming without all the fat. I also only used 3 cu...
