Slow cooker creamy chicken chili is a tangy, cheesy meal you set and forget
Kitchen trends come and go. Five years ago, the Instant Pot was the hot new small appliance everyone had to have. In their wake, air fryers are the hot new-ish thing everyone must have. Through it all, the trusty slow cooker, which has been around in some form for 83 years, remains a workhorse in the kitchen, offering set-it-and-forget-it-style cooking with ease.
This time of year, it’s even better to have a slow cooker around. If you’re hosting, you can make additional food without using your oven or stovetop and prep hours ahead of time, reserving your energy for more time-consuming dishes like roast turkeys or mashed potatoes. If you’re busy working or shopping, you can put some ingredients into your slow cooker early in the day and come home to a perfectly warm, comforting dinner.
