Chili is a problem-solver in my kitchen. When I'm not sure what to make, or when I want a meal that makes a bunch of leftovers so I don't have to cook for a few days, chili is always the answer. I love how customizable chili can be. If I'm feeling a little bit blah, for example, I usually make a simple base — lots of beans, crushed tomatoes, vegetables, and ground beef. Then I top it with all of the things that can fit in the bowl, like shredded cheese, green onions, sour cream, avocado, or whatever else sounds good at the time.
If you're looking for something a little more exciting to add to your dinner rotation, then you need to check out the most popular chili recipe on Pinterest. It was saved 225,000 times on the platform last year alone.
The most popular chili recipe on Pinterest is this creamy slow cooker white chicken chili from The Chunky Chef. It's made by adding a bunch of normal chili ingredients to a Crock-Pot — chicken, stock, beans, seasoning, and vegetables. You cook all this on low for eight hours, and then add some cream cheese and half-and-half to the mixture, and cook on high for 15 minutes. Then you can top with whatever you want. The Chunky Chef recommends things like jalapeños, shredded cheese, and tortilla strips.
