Chicken Taco Chili

After many shared recipes via email and paper, my mom and I decided it would be fun for us to start a collective blog of recipes we have made. It is thanks to my mom that I developed my love of cooking and we'd like to share our love of cooking and trying new recipes with others.

Here is my first recipe. It is easy to make (mostly just dumping cans in a crockpot) and is ready to eat when you are. Very flavorful and delicious! Although if you're cooking for someone who doesn't like things too spicy, you may want to add less chili powder (or none).

Chicken Taco Chili














Ingredients:

  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • 1 can of corn
  • 16 oz of tomato sauce
  • 28 oz of diced tomatoes (Rotel)
  • 3 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp of garlic powder*
  • 1 tbsp of chili powder*
  • 1 tbsp of ground cumin*
  • 1 tbsp of cilantro*
(*Instead of these spices, you can use a packet of taco seasoning if desired)

Serve with:
  • Tortilla chips
  • Sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt)
  • Mexican or taco blend cheese
Directions:
  1. Add beans, corn, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and spices (or the packet of taco seasoning) to the crockpot and stir. 
  2. Place chicken on top of rest of the ingredients (I add the chicken breast frozen). Make sure that it is mostly covered by mixture.
  3. Cook on high for 6-7 hours or low for 8-9 hours.
  4. Shortly before serving, take chicken out and shred it before adding it back to the chili.
  5. Serve with tortilla chips for scooping and top with sour cream and cheese. 

It makes about 5 big bowlfuls. 


Enjoy!
