Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chili

This recipe is super easy to make. Besides cutting up the onions all you have to do is pour all the ingredients in the slow cooker. This recipe is 220 calories for 1 cup. You can eat this any way you like. I chose to eat this a side of brown rice and a avocado.

1 small onion, chopped

1 (15.5 oz) can black beans, drained

1 (15.5 oz) can kidney beans, drained

1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce

10 oz package frozen corn kernels

2 (10 oz) cans diced tomatoes w/chilies

4 oz can chopped green chili peppers, chopped

1 packet reduced sodium taco seasoning or homemade (see below)

1 tbsp cumin

1 tbsp chili powder

24 oz (3) boneless skinless chicken breasts

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

If you want to make your own taco seasoning omit the packet and cumin and chili powder above and use below instead:

1 1/2 tablespoons cumin

1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Combine beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, diced tomato, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in a slow cooker and mix well.

Nestle the chicken in to completely cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 6 hours.

Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred.

Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in.

Top with fresh cilantro and your favorite toppings!
