Taco Chicken Chili.

Guest Post from Michelle B:
The holiday season means family, friends, food.....and football!  I love to make Taco Chicken Chili for a football party and there is no bigger game this weekend than the Rose Bowl!  I am so excited to watch Bucky bring home a Rose Bowl win!  And speaking of winners--this recipe is one.  The best thing about it, other than it is super yummy, is that it is healthy!!  A serving is around 200 calories.  Serving it on New Years Day won't wipe out anyone's New Years Resolutions on day one.  This recipe makes a crock-pot full so there is plenty to go around.  You will score big when you bring this to your next football party!

Taco Chicken Chili

  • 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 
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 24 oz (3-4) boneless skinless chicken breast
  • chili peppers, chopped (optional)
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 real WISCONSIN cheese and sour cream (adds calories, but is so yummy!!)

All my ingredients are prepped and ready to go. I'm going to serve the chili in bread bowls (pending a success in that department). Can't wait for supper tonight!

Just got done with my 1st bowl of this - AMAZING! I can't imagine how much better the bread bowls with this would have been. Brock says this one is a keeper. ;-)

Perfect timing for this post. I am planning a football tailgate theme for my son's 1st birthday and just searched all over google for a chicken chili recipe. I guess I didn't need to do all of that work. I will let you know how it turns out after next weekend!
