Chicken Taco Chili Recipe (Compliments of my weekly guest blogger, Amanda!)

5 years ago
Welcome back to Saw It. Pinned It. Did It.!  I hope you enjoyed last week’s post and I appreciate the feedback left in the comments section. Did you get to organizing over the weekend?
 
This week I bring you one of my favorite recipes: Chicken Taco Chili. When it’s the winter time, all I want to do is curl up on the couch with a bowl of hot chili. Doesn’t that sound so picturesque, relaxing and something you’d see in a rom-com? Last year we were given the fortunate surprise of a very mild winter but this year, we are back to the typical cold and windy Kentucky winter. So, like I said, it was just a matter of time before I busted out this oh-so-simple recipe.
 
When I first came across this recipe on Pinterest, I drooled. Two of my favorite things combined: tacos and chili. And the best thing about it? It’s a crockpot recipe which equals super simple! These days, between working full time and coaching club volleyball, I’m pretty whooped by the time I get home so finding recipes like this that I can start in the morning and it’s waiting for me when I get home is completely ideal.
 
You can do this meal for relatively cheap by grabbing the following ingredients:
 
 
  
 
 
 
  
 
1 white onion (chop it up!)
1 16 oz. can of black beans (drain)
1 16 oz. can of kidney beans (drain)
1 16 oz. can of tomato sauce
2 small cans of corn kernels (these add a subtle crunch to the meal!)
28 oz. can of diced tomatoes (with chilies)
-          I added a can of diced green chilies because I forgot to get ones with them already in it!
1 packet of taco seasoning (can kick it up by getting medium flavor)
1 tbsp of cumin
1 tbsp of chili powder
24 oz. (3) boneless chicken breasts
 
 
 
 

Simply pour the first 8 ingredients into the crockpot, mix and put the chicken breasts on top. Cook for 10 hours and voila! Before you eat, take the chicken out and shred and then mix it back in. You can add a little bit of fat free sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese to the top if you’d like – enjoy!
 
 
 
 
The awesome part – you’ll be eating on this stuff for days and not even care. So far, my boyfriend and I both had it for dinner, lunch and there is probably another dinner and lunch size portion left for the both of us! How cost efficient can you be?? (Nerd Alert!)

P.S. Happy Birthday to my lovely Mama and my cousin Courtney!
P.S.S. I will be celebrating my golden birthday this weekend. I’m sure I’ll have a creative idea for a new post that stems from that fun! J
