My DH won't eat a lot of beans, so I have to be creative.  He will eat this though, it's from the Betty Crocker website:

Crock pot White chicken chili


skinless chicken thighs (1 1/2 lb)


large onion, chopped (1 cup)


cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 3/4

cups Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)


teaspoon ground cumin


teaspoon dried oregano leaves


teaspoon salt


teaspoon red pepper sauce


cans (15 to 16 oz each) great northern beans, drained, rinsed


can (11 oz) Green Giant® Niblets® white shoepeg corn, drained


tablespoons lime juice


tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro



Remove excess fat from chicken. In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix onion, garlic, broth, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper sauce. Add chicken.


Cover; cook on Low heat setting 4 to 5 hours.


Remove chicken from slow cooker. Use 2 forks to remove bones and shred chicken into pieces. Discard bones; return chicken to slow cooker. Stir in beans, corn, lime juice and cilantro. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 15 to 20 minutes or until beans and corn are hot.

Best Chili Ever - you can use any bean; 1 can = 1/5 cups home cooked
2 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
4 cups vegetable broth
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15-ounce) can white (cannellini) beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15-ounce) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen baby lima beans or regular lima beans or corn
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can tomato paste
2 tablespoons chili powder, or more to taste
2 tablespoons dried Mexican oregano or regular oregano (or more to taste)
2 teaspoons ground cumin (or more to taste)
1 teaspoon ground coriander (or more to taste)
1 to 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1-2 Tbl masa, mixed with cold water
1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Salt to taste (I add this last)

If you don't have a slowcooker, this can simmer on the stove; stir and add liquid as needed. In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients but the masa, shredded cheese, cilantro and salt. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Five to 10 minutes before serving (depending on temperature of slow cooker) add masa and water mixture, cover and cook for about 15 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and other spices.
Just before serving, top each serving with shredded cheese and cilantro.

Crockpot Cheesy White Cauliflower Chili
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 onions finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. cumin seeds
1 tbsp. dried oregano leaves
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cracked black peppercorns
1 14 to 19 oz. can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed, or 1 C dried white kidney beans, cooked and drained
3 cups vegetable stock
3 cup cauliflower florets, cooked for 4 minutes in salted boiling water and drained
1 to 2 jalapeno peppers, minced
1 green bell pepper, minced
2 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese
4 ozs. cream cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes and softened
1 can chopped mild green chilies
finely chopped green onions, optional, for garnish
finely chopped cilantro, optional, for garnish
In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, cumin seeds, oregano, chili powder, salt and peppercorns and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Transfer mixture to slow cooker stoneware. Add beans and stock and stir to combine.
Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours, until hot and bubbling.
Stir in cauliflower, jalapeno pepper, green pepper, Monterey jack cheese, and cream cheese and chilies, if using. Cover and cook on high for 25 to 30 minutes, until the green peppers are softened and cauliflower is heated through. Ladle into bowls and garnish as desired with chopped green onions and cilantro.
If you prefer thicker chili, mash some or all of the beans or puree in a food processor before adding to the recipe.NOTE: if you don't have a slow cooker, you can certainly simmer this on the stove, stirring and adding liquid as needed.
