INGREDIENTS
  1. 1 medium yellow or white onion, finely diced
  2. 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  3. 2 (14 oz) cans white beans, drained
  4. 2 cups chicken broth
  5. 1 Tbsp chili powder
  6. 1 Tbsp cumin
  7. 1/2 tsp black pepper
  8. 2 tsp salt
  9. 2 (4 oz) cans chopped green chiles
  10. 1/2 tsp tabasco sauce, optional
  11. 1/2 cup butter
  12. 6 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  13. 2 cups milk
  14. 1/2 cup sour cream
  15. 1 lime, juiced
  16. 1/2 cup grated Monterey jack cheese, for serving
  17. Cilantro, for serving

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Combine onion, chicken, beans, broth, chili powder, cumin, pepper, salt, green chiles and tabasco sauce in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until chicken is very tender.
  • Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and place it on a cutting board. Let it rest.
  • Start melting butter in a large pan on the stove over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, whisk in flour, a tablespoon at a time. Add in the milk, about a half cup at a time, and whisk. The mixture will become thick and creamy. Add the mixture to the slow cooker and stir.
