Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

DSCF8080

We’ve started a new (to us) tradition:  Slow Cooker Sundays!  Every Sunday this football season we’re going to bust out the Crockpot (or two) and cook up some comforting treats!  This past Sunday our slow cooked supper was courtesy of Skinny Taste’s Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili recipe!

As you would expect with any slow cooker recipe, this was quite easy to throw together.  I made a few minor tweaks to the original recipe… When do I not?!

All you do is toss the following into the crock:

  • 1 chopped white onion
  • 2 16-oz cans beans of your choice, drained and rinsed (I used blacks beans)
  • 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • 1.5 cups frozen corn kernels
  • 3 10-oz cans Rotel Tomatoes
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder

Give everything a stir to combine:

Then plop about 30 ounces of raw chicken breasts on top and push them down slightly into the liquid.

We cooked our chili on high for 5.5 hours then pulled out the chicken breasts and gave them a quick shred with two forks.  The chicken literally fell apart as I grabbed it!

Toss the chicken back in and 30 minutes later it is time to feast!  We served our chili with a 1/2 serving of brown rice, dollop of Fat Free Trader Joe’s Plain Greek Yogurt, and a big ole handful of chopped raw onions.

There may have also been some Fritos added last minute Smile
