Just like any other social media-savvy home cook, we enjoy browsing Pinterest for kitchen inspiration, cooking hacks to make our lives easier, and, most of all, for recipe ideas.

As Cooking Light's social media editor, I agree with many of our readers who leave comments that acknowledge just how many diets have gone viral this year. It feels like every other day there’s some new diet or food or recipe that’s popular, trending, or going viral.

One of the easiest ways to keep up with these diets is to find recipes that are keto-friendly, or Whole30 approved, or Paleo-specific, or what-have-you, on Pinterest! (If you’re haven't done so already, follow us!)

So when a recipe starts to trend, we sit up and take notice. And boy, has this recent recipe started to trend. We’re talking about the slow-cooker white chili from The Real Food Dietitians.

The recipe is Paleo and Whole30-friendly, comes together in just 10 minutes, and has over 250,000 saves. When The Kitchn calls it the “most popular Whole30 recipe on Pinterest,” we’re more than inclined to believe them. You can take a peek at the popular recipe via Pinterest below:

Looks yummy, right? We love that this recipe is also dairy-free; the chili gets its creaminess from coconut milk, which gets balanced by a pretty generous dose of cumin. There are no beans in this chili (beans are not Whole30-friendly), so the Texans out there will be happy—but we’re betting that some white beans wouldn’t go amiss, if you were so inclined.

While I was standing in line at the grocery store, waiting to buy the ingredients and get cracking on this white chicken chili, I started thinking about some of our favorite classic Cooking Light white chilis—and there are a lot.

But if reading this article has you in the mood for white chili, which you couldn’t have anticipated and prepped for in your slow-cooker, then we’re big fans of this green chicken chili. Omit the beans and sour cream to make it more Whole30-friendly, if you like—either way, it takes just 20 minutes to prepare.
