White chili is typically made with white beans, green chilis and chicken.  It’s a milder cousin to the spicier (and beefier) Texas style chili recipes.

For this delicious and hearty white chili, we’re using a mixture of cannellini beans and garbanzo beans. The cannellinis deliver the thickness you want from a good chili – and the garbanzos add a touch of nutty toothiness.

Now, we’ve left the chicken you’d usually find in a white chili out of this recipe (but feel free to add some if you’d like!). As it stands, this isn’t just a vegetarian recipe – it’s a full-on vegan chili. But the best thing about making chili at home is that you can modify as you see fit.

Warming spices like cumin and smoked paprika play so nicely with the trinity of onion, garlic and celery. But we’d say the star of this dish (aside from the beans) is the green chilis. They deliver a mild punch and manage to level-up the overall flavor, without overwhelming the dish with spice.

And the best part about this yummy slow cooker chili recipe is that you can make it after a busy day with minimal fuss in your rice cooker.


Simply load all of your chili ingredients into the inner pot of your Tiger multifunctional rice cooker and use the Slow Cook setting for 70 minutes. That’s it!

No muss, no fuss. When the timer sounds off – dinner is served!
