Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili December 15, 2011

I saw this recipe pinned on Pinterest. It looked good to me since I don’t like chili heavy on chili powder (weird I know.) I had a package of boneless skinless chicken thighs so I used those instead of breasts for some extra rich flavor. I also used only black beans because those are my favorite. Crock pot recipes are a weekend staple when we are busy and this one was very very good.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 16-oz cans black 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 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • chili peppers, chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

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.
