Blizzard comfort food

I have been wanting to a white chicken chili for a long time. Being house-bound after NYC's post-Christmas blizzard a.k.a. Snowpacolypse, seemed like the perfect time! To make this recipe I used a combo of recipes and adapted to work it to make my own version for the crock pot. The beauty of this soup is that it's all about creating the taste YOU love. Me? I love spicy, creamy, nutty here's my recipe:

Joy's Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Chili

2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

1 can White (Great Northern) Beans

1 4 oz. can chopped Green Chiles

1 can Corn

1 TBSP. Cumin

1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper

1 TBSP Oregano

2 Cloves Garlic, Minced

1 small Onion, chopped

2 Cloves Garlic, Minced

1 1/4 Cups Chicken Broth

1 1/2 Cups Heavy Cream

Combine all ingredients (except cream and chicken) in slow cooker. Salt and Pepper each chicken breast and lay on top of soup base. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours. Remove chicken once it is cooked and chop into cubes. Return to slow cooker and stir in cream. Taste and season if necessary. Let simmer for 15 more minutes. Serve with shredded cheese and chopped green onions!
