  • Summary

    This easy, slow-cooked chili is not your average "bowl of red." With chicken, sweet potatoes, tomatillo salsa, and pinto beans, it's more of a cross between chile verde (usually made with pork) and white chicken chili. Just a few ingredients and effortless prep gives you a flavorful and satisfying "bowl of green."

    Ingredients

    • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    • 2 large sweet potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1" cubes (about 2 pounds)
    • 1 (16-ounce) jar tomatillo salsa (salsa verde) (about 2 cups)
    • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 2 teaspoons (or more) kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon (or more) freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 cans low-sodium pinto beans, drained, rinsed
    • Sliced avocado, cilantro leaves, sour cream, and/or finely chopped onion (for serving; optional)
    • A 6-quart (or larger) slow cooker
