Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

Today, I was in a pinch.. I had to go to the Dr. and we went to Early Years.. I forgot to take something out for supper before I left.. I searched and searched for a chicken recipe that would cook in a few hours in my crock pot.. I found this recipe on SkinnyTaste.. I think that it will be a winner as it smells Fabulous 🙂

Recipe 

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 16-oz can black beans
  • 1 16-oz can kidney beans
  • 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • 10 oz package frozen corn kernels
  • 2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes w/chilies
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 24 oz (3-4) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • chili peppers, chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions:
Combine beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in a slow cooker. Place chicken on top and cover. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in. Top with fresh cilantro. Also try it with low fat cheese and sour cream.

I like, I always do had to make this recipe with a little be of me in it.. Plus I had to modify it to accommodate my pantry..
I added one of each green and red peppers chopped, used white kidney beans, instead of red.. And I had no plain tomato sauce, so I used 1 cup of chicken stock.. I used low sodium taco seasoning, and no cilantro for me 😦
Thanks again SkinnyTaste, I can’t wait to eat this up 🙂
