Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili




There is nothing like a lazy Sunday when you have a meal cooking all day in the crock pot and the aroma of food is in the air, or coming home from work on a weeknight and having dinner ready when you get home. I love my slow cooker and this chicken chili is a delicious, low point, high fiber meal. It's so easy to make and it is great over rice, with multi-grain chips, topped with low fat cheddar cheese or low fat sour cream. This makes a lot and it is even better the next day for lunch!

    1. My gawd, this looks so good! I can do this without meat (veggie) - there's plenty of protein in the beans!

      ReplyDelete
    2. Sure, this can easily be made without the meat!

    3. I need to get myself a crock pot! I've heard of many delicious dishes that can come out of a crock pot, but have never really seen it.
      But now, the proof is here and it looks delicious!

    4. Gina what is the serving size for crock pot chicken chili. And is the rice calculated in the points?

      ReplyDelete
    5. The serving size is 10 oz, the rice or cheese would be extra.

      ReplyDelete
    6. Gina, crockpot chicken chili came out great, what i need to know is what is the serving size for the 4 points. New to WW so want to stay in track.
      Happy New Year

      ReplyDelete
    7. Hi Anonymous, the serving size is 10 oz. which is the same as 1 1/4 cups. Hope that helps!

      ReplyDelete
    8. This sounds great...maybe to save points I would serve it over plain salad!

      ReplyDelete
    9. The serving size is large enough that you can eat it alone and still be satisfied.

    10. I just found your blog. I added it to my favorites. Thanks so much for posting low-fat recipes.

      ReplyDelete
    11. Thanks for the great blog Gina! I have the chili in my Crockpot right now! Smells great. I was wondering if you rinsed your beans or added the liquid from the can? I also wondered if the 1Tbsp of chile powder and Tbsp of cumin were correct? I thought that sounded like a bit much, so cut those to just a tsp each. Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    12. I like spice so they were correct but you can certainly cut that back to your taste. It makes a whole lot so it didn't taste over-powering to me. I didn't rinse my beans, I added the whole can. Would love to hear how it comes out!

    14. Was delicious and very filling. I also used frozen boneless chicken tenders and it was done in less time. I'll be making again soon! Thx!

      ReplyDelete
    15. I'm a teenager who loves to cook and I made this for my family today after finding it on Tastespotting. It was a hit! Everyone kept saying how good it was. Thanks for the great recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    16. That's great! Glad to hear everyone enjoyed it. So easy to make!

      ReplyDelete
    17. How big is the package of frozen corn you used? We live in the UK and all the sizes are different over here (and I don't remember what the standard US size is anymore)! Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    18. I made this Friday night. It's very good, and super easy. Thanks for posting!

      ReplyDelete
    19. Glad you liked it @ OK Chick. @silentbeauty I will purchase another small package of frozen corn and post the size, sorry for the confusion. It was one of those small packages.

      ReplyDelete
    20. Thanks so much for posting this recipe on Tastespotting. I noticed it last Friday. The only ingredients I had to pick up were a can of black beans and an onion. I cooked it up for dinner on Saturday. What a huge hit with my family! I love how much the recipe made - went far feeding a family of 5. Thanks again!

      ReplyDelete
    21. It's in the crockpot and smells terrific! Thanks for sharing it!

      ReplyDelete
    22. If you have a small crockpot, would you recommend just cutting the ingredients in half?

      ReplyDelete
    23. Sure, you can easily cut this recipe in half.

      ReplyDelete
    24. I'm making this right now and it still has a couple hours to go... smells great, but it's pretty runny... does it thicken up? Thanks! :)

      ReplyDelete
    25. Yes it will be thick when it's completely cooked. Try not to open the lid too much.

      ReplyDelete
    26. I'm making your chili right now- I'm so excited! Especially because it only cost me an extra $5 when added to what I already had in my cupboards. Fabulous!

      ReplyDelete
    27. This is AWESOME!!!!!! This is my favorite right now! Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    28. Made this yesterday and my sister is already asking me to bring some over today after I told her about it. It was delicious!

      ReplyDelete
    29. This is my most popular dish! Glad you liked it. It's better the next day!

      ReplyDelete
    30. It's in the crock pot! I'm really nervous it's going to be too spicy for me, but I guess I won't know until I try it. Thanks for the recipe! :)

      ReplyDelete
    31. Sorry, a few more questions! If the onions are on the bottom, will they burn? There wasn't a need to grease the crock pot in any way, right? And does it need to be stirred at all?

      Thank you!

      ReplyDelete
    32. Hi Gina,
      Thanks for another great recipe. We won the Texas chili cook-off and my son said he liked your recipe even better. The whole family said it was a hit and only wish we had more left over. I look forward to every recipe I try from you and appreciate your help in our weight loss.

      ReplyDelete
    33. G, I am away so I wasn't able to answer your questions, hope everything came out ok, it's pretty hard to mess up. Just put it in the crock pot and cover it, come home from work and it's done. Simple!

      ReplyDelete
    34. @Marine, so glad you all liked it! I hope you like all my other recipes.

      ReplyDelete
    35. I made this yesterday and it didn't turn out right. When preparing it, I layed the chicken on top like you said and when I came home... after it had cooked for 10 hours on low, the chicken was cooked on the bottom and still raw on the top. I ended up having to cook on my stovetop on high heat for close to an hour to get the chicken close to being shreddable. Even still when it was finished the chicken was tough. I'm not sure what went wrong.

      ReplyDelete
    36. Something went very wrong! It always comes out cooked and the meat just falls apart. In fact I always make my chicken like that in the crock pot. Was it covered the whole time?

      ReplyDelete
    37. Yes. I put it on at 8:30am and left for work- I didn't open it until 6:30pm. It's a brand new crock pot also, I've only used it twice prior to this. Has anyone else had this issue?

      ReplyDelete
    38. Then I would try pushing the chicken down so that it is completely covered by all liquids. Was the rest of it cooked?

      ReplyDelete
    39. I made this today and it was excellent. Thanks

      ReplyDelete
    40. How many chicken tenders would I use? I want to try tjhis recipe soon. But I buy frozen chicken tenders in bulk.

      ReplyDelete
    41. I have to say I've made this recipe several times. My whole family loves it.

      ReplyDelete
    42. It's one of those recipes you make again and again!

      ReplyDelete
    43. Thanks for this recipe. I made it yesterday(without the corn) and it was so, so good. I've never made chili before but this was incredible. I got rave reviews. I also just had leftovers for my lunch and you were right, it was better today! Yum!!!

      ReplyDelete
    44. I can't wait to try this! I"m so glad I found this website!!

      ReplyDelete
    45. I can't wait to try this!!

      ReplyDelete
    46. How should you cook this if you dont have a crock pot?

      ReplyDelete
    47. You could always simmer on low for a few hours to get similar results.

      ReplyDelete
    48. this is VERY good!!! It's really good with shredded lettuce instead of rice or chips!

      ReplyDelete
    49. Just made this today. It took about 10 minutes to put together and is soooooo delicious. My 2 year old daughter is still lingering at her plate and every once in awhile, she'll look up and say "YUMMY!" Thanks for the great and easy recipe! Can't wait to try the others!

      ReplyDelete
    50. I was wondering, when you say shred the chicken, do you do that using a cheese grater?

      ReplyDelete
    51. No, it pulls apart. You can use a fork.

      ReplyDelete
    52. I found your blog recently through Tastespotting and I must say, everything looks delicious. I made this recipe last week and had it for dinner all week. It was absolutely amazing and I couldn't wait to have dinner each night. I have already passed on this recipe to a few others and can't wait to make it again.

      ReplyDelete
    53. Made this last night and we loved it. I have one question, Do you know the nutrition information for a serving? If you could let me know I would really appreciate it! Thanks again :o)

      ReplyDelete
    54. @ Suzanna, when you say the nutrition information, are you asking for calories?

      ReplyDelete
    55. Yes. The calories, fat, sodium, carbs and sugars?
      if not all, ill take any numbers that you have! Thanks- Suzanna

      ReplyDelete
    56. @Suzanna, it's 202 calories per serving. That's the only information I have aside from the points.

      ReplyDelete
    57. I made this yesterday for dinner. This is absolutely delicious. The recipe is now working its way around my building at work!! Great job, Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    58. I make this recipe all the time! Although, I think the rice is not needed, and instead of shredding the chicken, I cut it into chunks. I love this recipe!!!

      ReplyDelete
    59. Made this recipe tonight. It was delicious! I served over ricee with some low fat cheese. It's definitely a recipe to make over and over.

      ReplyDelete
    60. Just came across your site this morning...it's great! I'm making the chix-taco-chili right now and can't wait to serve it tonight for dinner. Tahnks for the recipe.

      ReplyDelete
    61. I made the broiled tilapia lastnite and it was amazing....when I got done preparing it I threw this together in a crockpot and when I left this morning my house smelled amazing! I absolutely LOVE this website and am very anxious to try the rest of your recipes. Thanks for all your effort into this site, its awesome!

    64. hello gina..

      i just discoverd your site,and all the recepies looks great, im from holland,and following ww for 5 months now..
      i have a guestion..what is a crackpot?is this the steel pan to cool for a long time? sorry for asking,but i can't wait to make this stew..

      greetings from holland..ilonka

      ReplyDelete
    65. @ilonka - A crock pot is a slow cooker that you put all your ingredients in, you plug it in and your food slowly, safely cooks all day while you are out.

      ReplyDelete
    66. This is in the crockpot right now. I cant wait until my husband gets home so we can eat! :)

      ReplyDelete
    67. We loved this too.....delicious!

      ReplyDelete
    68. This was fantastic! We loved it and will add it to our regular rotation.

      ReplyDelete
    69. Will this cook faster if you cut the chicken breast in half so its not as thick? Or even use chicken tenders? Would really like to have this for dinner tonight! Thanks so much!!

      ReplyDelete
    70. Not sure, I would let it cook 6 hours on high to make sure everything cooks. You really shouldn't cut it shorter than that.

      ReplyDelete
    71. Skipped the taco seasoning and went with real chili peppers (to include 1 habarero, 2 jalapenos and 4 other chili peppers)... less sodium. SOOOOO good!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    72. I was curious how the points get calculated? Is it based off calories or did you count the points of everything you put in?

      Thanks

      ReplyDelete
    73. @Nathan, I figure out the points for each ingredient that goes in, then add that together. Then I figure it how many servings it makes and divide it by that number.

      ReplyDelete
    74. This was so awesome!!

      ReplyDelete
    75. LOVE THE CHILI-WAS A GREAT HIT WITH MY HUSBAND. WE ARE BOTH DOING WW AND LOVE THE ADDED POINTS YOU PROVIDE. THANKS FOR PROVIDING A GREAT SITE FOR PEOPLE.

      ReplyDelete
    76. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    77. Hello!
      Im going to try this tomorrow. Do you put the chicken into the crockpot raw, or do you cook it a little first? Thank you!!!:)

      ReplyDelete
    78. @Dani - Raw, it cooks in the crock pot.

      ReplyDelete
    79. Hi Gina,
      I know you're answering a lot of questions about the chicken...but do you put the chicken breasts in frozen or thawed?

      ReplyDelete
    80. That's ok. I always put it in thawed. But I heard you can use frozen chicken in the crock pot, although I have never tried that.

      ReplyDelete
    81. I followed this recipe exactly as it is - and it is wonderful, especially on a multigrain tortilla as a burrito!

      ReplyDelete

      Gina! Thanks so much! Tried it...LOVED IT and so does my very picky-eater husband. Wee hoo! (Especially loved that I didn't have to do the points calculating...ha!) THANKS!

      ReplyDelete
    83. This is an awesome chili recipe. A new family favorite for sure. Thanks Gina.

      ReplyDelete
    86. What does WW taste like?? lol

      ReplyDelete
    87. This was fabulous as are all of your recipes I've tried so far! My picky husband loved it!

      ReplyDelete
    91. I'm so excited I found your blog! I can't wait to try this recipe tonight. Please keep them coming!

      ReplyDelete
    92. I'm about to make this and I'm so excited! I have to make it without salt for my mom so no taco seasoning for us, but I have been able to mimic taco seasoning using cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and onion powder. Very good. Can't wait to try this! What a great blog!

      ReplyDelete
    93. I prepared this on Sunday then cooked it all day Monday. It was great!! I posted my success on facebook, and since everyone wanted to know where it came from, I have sent them here. Thanks for the recipe!!!

      ReplyDelete
    94. I'm going grocery shopping tomorrow and have been browsing this site, figuring out meals for the next week! I'm really looking forward to trying this!

      ReplyDelete
    95. Hi: Can you cut up a red pepper and add to this recipe instead of the chili peppers? I'm making it tomorrow for dinner...:)

      Thank you.

      ReplyDelete
    96. Oh, I have another question.... As I'm cooking for one, can I freeze individual servings of this recipe? That way I can take one out in the morning and have it for dinner.

      ReplyDelete
    97. Sooo Delish!! I will never make chili the hard way again. What's the point this is just so good!
      Even my skinny fast food loving Hubby can't get enough of it!

      ReplyDelete
    98. Gina

      I am going to make this recipe short cut and not in the crock pot. I am going to use leftover rotisseri chicken with the skin removed. Do you think that will change the points?

      ReplyDelete
    99. It really depends on how much chicken you use. Dark meat is slightly higher.

      ReplyDelete
    100. Hi Gina, The Chili was delicious and very filling. My fiancee and I both loved it. Quick, question, can I freeze left overs?

      Tony

    104. I'm new to your blog and am LOVING IT!!!! I'm making this chili tonight. If it's anything like the turkey bean chili you posted, it's going to a a family hit! (That's including my picky 3 year old and equally picky husband!)

      ReplyDelete
    105. I think they are both equally liked by all!

      Hi Gina!

      Just found your website, and as a fellow WW, am
      thrilled! Made chili yesterday in my new slow cooker with almost the same recipe, and will adjust the seasonings, which make all the difference, when I make yours next! thanks for the blog! SOP!!

      ReplyDelete
    107. I love this recipe, I would definetly make it again. It was a bit spicier than I like but I think I'll use half of the taco seasoning next time. I also used 1 tsp. each of the cumin and the chili powder.

      ReplyDelete
    108. Hi Gina,

      Thank you for all your amazing recipes. I truly love this site :) I wanted to ask you if you thought using chicken thighs for this recipe would alter taste or cooking time in anyway? I put it all in the crockpot before I left for work & I hope using the thighs will be ok ??

      ReplyDelete
    109. I'm sure the thighs would be fine, I love chicken thighs! Cooking time would be the same, let me know how it comes out!

      ReplyDelete
    110. Great, will let you know how it works. I agree chicken thighs are the best! Thanks again.

      ReplyDelete
    111. This was excellent. Everybody raved about it.

      ReplyDelete
    112. And that's coming from a Chili Diva! :)

      ReplyDelete
    113. Hi Gina,

      I'm not a fan of black beans, can I use two cans of kidney beans and do I have to use frozen corn or will drained canned corn still do the trick?

      ReplyDelete
    114. You can substitute any canned bean for black beans. Kidney beans are fine and so is drained canned corn. Enjoy!

      ReplyDelete
    115. Gina,

      I'm the don't like black beans girl. :) I put all of this in the crock pot last night at midnight to have for lunch today. I work from home and it was hard to get up this morning and not have chili for breakfast. It looks amazing and it smells even better. Thank you for helping us all learn that meals can be great tasting and healthy. It's making this journey to become healthy, much easier.

      ReplyDelete
    116. Chili for breakfast, tempting!!

      ReplyDelete
    117. Should the beans and tomatoes be drained first? Or put everything in there? Thanks.

      ReplyDelete
    118. No need to drain it unless you want to drain the beans as a personal preference.

      ReplyDelete
    119. I made this meal for a work luncheon and everyone wanted the recipe! I used chicken thighs without the skin and took the bones out easily and shred the meat after 10 hours. Thank you for this delicious recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    120. I bet it was great with thighs! Thanks for sharing!!

      ReplyDelete
    121. I made this last week, and it was so good. I had to omit the taco seasoning because I forgot to buy any, but it turned out great. My husband and I took the leftovers to work for a couple days!

      ReplyDelete
    122. Gina, I will be making my third batch of this today! I use it for taco salad, nachos and just by itself! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

      ReplyDelete
    123. You're welcome!! This freezes well and makes great leftovers!

      ReplyDelete
    124. Gina,this is really filling and lots of flavor.
      Made it last night and we'll have some for supper and freeze the rest.
      Thanks

      ReplyDelete
    125. Do you happen to know the fat, protein and fiber content?

      I've been eating leftovers for a week now and it still tastes delicious!

      ReplyDelete
    126. I'll try to work on getting that info for my older recipes!

      ReplyDelete
    127. I just made this tonight and it was amazing and so easy to make!!! One question! Would you make this with any other meat or it only works with chicken?

      ReplyDelete
    128. I've never tried it with anything other than chicken but turkey breast I'm sure would work.

      ReplyDelete
    129. Another great recipe. I didn't have any kidney beans, but I did have dried pinto beans which I cooked up nice and slow. I served it to my parents and husband on a hot North Carolina day along with the cilantro habanero (jalapeno from our garden!)lime rice.

      ReplyDelete
    130. If anyone has trouble with the chicken being tough - I have a similar recipe and it has you put in the chicken breasts/tenders frozen so they cook slower and are very tender when you shred them up at the end. Just a hint ...my grand daughters love this recipe....

      ReplyDelete
    131. Thanks about the frozen chicken. Honestly, there is no way the chicken should be tough. It falls apart when you take it out, very tender.

      ReplyDelete
    132. Made it today and it's soooo yummy and filling.

      ReplyDelete
    133. Made this for dinner tonight big hit! I also added a diced up red pepper...soo yummy!

      ReplyDelete
    134. I love love love this! I like how it isn't too spicy either. My 15 month old son ate it up as well.

      ReplyDelete
    135. Awesome! Yes, this is a family favorite, very mild.

      ReplyDelete
    136. I started this recipe today. The aroma is delightful--can't wait to dig in!

      ReplyDelete
    137. Oh my - this looks awesome! Found it too late for supper tonight, but it'll be on for tomorrow night. Can't wait! Absolutely looks wonderful. Love your site, Gina! Your recipes are so down to earth and can be loved by the entire family - not just those of us on weight watchers! Thank you! Karen

      ReplyDelete
    141. I have made this 3 or 4 times and turns out great everytime - thanks for the great receipe!

      ReplyDelete
    142. Hello There,
      I'm sorry if this question is dumb but I just dont get how this can be 10 servings? If each serving is 1 1.4 cups I only got 4-5 servings of this. Did I do something wrong?
      Also the recipe asks for 24oz chicken well I weighed 3 chicken breasts and it came to 14 oz ( i realize they come in different sizes) but even with adding an additional breast to get 4 breats I barely had room in the crockpot and when I shredded the meat at the end, I couldnt even add all of the shredded meat and as it was way to much for the other ingrediants and I didnt even use 24oz as stated on the recipe?
      Am I totally doing something wrong or has anyone else encountered these issues on this recipe?
      thx, Sabrina

      ReplyDelete
    143. Sabrina you might try a bigger crock pot? I made this last night and I was able to get almost exactly 24 oz of chicken (4 breasts). I had plenty of room even after shredding. Invited my neighbors over to help me eat it (3 guys in early 20's). Our portions were much bigger than the 10 oz Gina suggests. Two of the guys had two helpings, I had a smaller 2nd helping, and have enough for two lunches this week... It was a hit!

    147. I made this dish this past Sunday for all of my neighbor's and it was a HIT!! It made enough for all six of us and I still had leftovers. This will definitely become a regular meal in my house. Delicious!

    148. Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili is EXCELLENT! I served it on Ronzoni Smart Taste elbow macaroni and topped with Weight Watchers shredded mexican cheese. My husband and daughter both LOVED it! I am sure I will be making this many, many more times! It also freezes very well. I thawed and reheated it in the crockpot and it was just as delicious as the first time. Thanks for all of your work on this website, every recipe I have tried so far has been a winner!

    151. I'm so happy you enjoyed it, I might have to put this back on my menu this week!

    152. I really want to make this after reading all of the rave reviews, problem is my husband absolutely hates tomato chunks and onions? any suggestions? Thanks so much!

      ReplyDelete
    153. WOW, this was delicious. I did not have to eat it with anything. My son who can be very picky, loves this. Thanks again so much!!!!Love your site!!!!

    154. I put the chili over cooked spaghetti squash...OH MY YUMMY! It was SOO good and so filling and I can think of 10 other ways I want to try this recipe!
      Thank you!

    155. Wow, Gina, this was amazing!! It was so incredibly easy to throw together, and after simmering all day, tasted absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much! This will be going into the regular rotation for sure.

    156. Gina,
      This was fabulous! My husband doesn't like beans, so I made the whole recipe for myself and had 1 serving. I put the rest into individual freezer bags and popped them in the freezer for later! I am hoping when I am super busy one day, I can just take one out to defrost and re-heat!

    157. Samantha, I love doing that! Makes a great lunch!

    158. hello gina!

      your website has been a blessing for me. Now that WW has changed there points sytstem, do you have the nutritional content of this recipe?

      thank you!

      ReplyDelete
    159. I am with miss_j. Nutritional content so we can figure out the new points or new points plus values posted would be SOO helpful! I have a bunch of bags in my freezer that need to be updated on how many points plus they are! Thanks Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    160. I am also wondering if you have the nutritional content or points plus value for this one. It looks very good!!

      ReplyDelete
    161. I made this yesterday and it was great! Even my husband like it and he doesn't like a lot of Weight Watchers friendly recipes. I enjoy following your blog. Keep cooking!

      ReplyDelete
    162. Just put it all into the crock pot. cant wait to see how it turns out.

      ReplyDelete
    163. thanks for doing this one! it is my favorite! :)

    164. I'm going to make this for my boyfriend and myself and have a 3.5 quart slow cooker... I would love to have leftovers so I'm not against making too much but I am concerned that my slow cooker is too small for this size. Should I cut it in half or will it all fit?

      ReplyDelete
    165. Jessica, I'm not sure. You'll haveto see how it fits.

      ReplyDelete
    166. Thanks for the great recipe ... I had to make a few modifications based on what I had on hand but all and all its terrific! I am also linking back to your site from my blog www.mydearestkitchen.com on the recipe later this week.

    167. Cooked this last night and it was delicious. My 4 yo liked it as well. Super easy recipe. I added 2 chopped shredded carrots and a chopped red bell pepper for added veggies.

    168. OMG I made Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili over brown rice tonight and Ginaaaaa.....it was wonderful! Thank you so much. It was both filling and flavorful. We only used two servings and I plan to freeze the rest. ★★★★★ (Five Stars)

    170. Do you think I could make this without the beans?

      ReplyDelete
    171. Thank you for this very easy recipe! I made this last night and it was a hit. So easy and very tasty!

      ReplyDelete
    172. Hi Gina,

      This looks delicious, I am going to make it next week!

      Just one question...you don't mention it in the directions, but do you add the canned tomatoes in at the same time as the beans and everything else?

      Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    173. Yes, sorry if that wasn't clear!

      ReplyDelete
    174. Thanks for the quick reply...I'm going to make it Sunday, I am very excited!!!

      ReplyDelete
    175. I made this for the family this evening. Was quite tasty. I think this makes the 5th recipe I've tried from your site so far? Loved them all! Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    176. Seriously...SO good! Made a HUGE amount too :) Everything I have made from your site so far is awesome! THANK YOU!

      ReplyDelete
    177. I love this recipe - but are you sure the new WW points plus value is 5? I put it in my recipe builder and it was only 4 points per serving. Just checkin!

      ReplyDelete
    178. I just started WW and made this for dinner tonight and LOVED it!!! So did my bf who doesnt much care for diets. I served it not on rice, but ate a couple spoonfuls in a whole wheat tortilla! And had the rest in a bowl with a scoop of fat free sour cream! Cant believe how good it is! I also made banana nut pancakes today, but was good and didnt eat any! Just froze them for the week. Cant wait to try them! Love this site!!

      ReplyDelete
    179. I made this today and it was EXCELLENT! The chicken was moist and so easy to shred, the flavor was great, and it was EASY to make! Definitely in my repertoire of recipes now.
      Thank you!

      ReplyDelete
    180. This was a huge hit with my husband. His colleagues were jealous when he brought it for lunch!

      This is definitely the best chili I've made. Yum!

      Made this last night for my husband, sister, brother in law and my mom. Everyone loved it! Even my husband and brother in law who are HUGE eaters and not much for dieters. This recipe made so much it fed us all for dinner and my husband took it to work today for lunch! Served with the rice, it's very filling and I felt satisfied all night. Thanks for another great recipe!

      ReplyDelete
    182. Made this last night for dinner. Have 2 young adult, college boys (son & nephew). One called and said "Mom, whatever you are cooking smells so good!" and other texted "Whatever u'r cookin', makes whole house smell good! Can't wait for dinner" Hubby luved it, too. This is THE BEST chicken chili dish. Definitely a keeper recipie!

      ReplyDelete
    183. I made this this week, exactly as the recipe states. It was so wonderful! Some times I ate it with brown rice, other time just with a bit of shredded cheese. It was amazing and very filling! Thanks for all the great recipes!

      ReplyDelete
    184. Made this the other day when St. Louis got almost a foot of snow -- the perfect dinner to have. It was delicious and it's just as good reheated! Thanks so much!

      ReplyDelete
    185. This is probably my new favorite dish (tied with Spinach Tortellini en Brodo)! If you have extra points like I did, serving it with a few tortilla chips, salad (Romaine mix), and a dollop of fat-free sour cream makes the best taco salad!

      ReplyDelete
    186. Omg this stuff is dangerous in a way that I almost could eat the entire crock pot full! It was amazing!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    187. Anyone else getting 4 points plus in recipe builder?

      It's been so cold here this week, I see why everyone is making this lately, it's perfect for the cold. Happy you all like it!

      Hubby & I do chili cookoffs every year so we didn't know what to expect but WOW! We both thought this was absolutely delicious. LOVE IT! It will be my cookoff recipe next year - hope you don't mind.
      I added a little dry ranch mix to it 'cause I could :) Love how easy the chicken shredded. It literaly took under 10 minutes to throw everything in the crockpot! I am trying out the Chicken and White Bean Enchiladas tonight and cannot wait. Your website has me so excited to be doing weight watchers again with a new outlook. Thank you so much.
      BTW - I didn't have kidney beans so I used white beans

      ReplyDelete
    189. Good luck with your cook off! Hope you win!

      ReplyDelete
    190. I also don't think I can get 10 servings out of this. It may be only like 5 servings, 6 at most by stretching and doing a scant 1 1/4 cups. any suggestions?

      ReplyDelete
    191. I just got done eating this for dinner...wow! So yummy and easy! I used 6 skinless chicken thighs in place of the chicken breasts. I find when I use boneless/skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot they turn out tough.

      Would the points plus change because of the chicken thighs?

      Thanks so much Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    192. This is such a great recipe! I'm about to use it for the second time. Just a quick question...does the dish itself taste different if you cook on low or high? I don't have time for the 10 hour cook. I know that may be a silly question, but I was never sure if the flavors were as intense if using a high setting.

      ReplyDelete
    193. Made this last night. We loved it. Really delicious!

      ReplyDelete
    194. My harshest critic - 5yo Luke - just declared this scrumptious! Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    195. It was AMAZING!!! First time using the crock pot. My husband loved it. You were right though, it makes ALOT. Had to drop some off at my parents and it was still too much leftovers for the two of us. We used canned corn instead of frozen. I would recommend putting in a little of jalapeno (just a little) for an extra kick. Very easy.

      ReplyDelete
    196. Tricia did you make it exact?

      Thighs may be a little higher but toy would have to check on recipe builder.

      I don't think it would make a difference cooking on high, but haven't tried yet.

      Yes, this makes a lot, but it freezes great so you can freeze the leftovers.

      ReplyDelete
    197. I just made this. AMAZING!!!!! Thanks for the great recipe!
