Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

One of my most popular recipes! This is the perfect slow cooker dish because you just dump all the ingredients in, turn it on and come back to the best tasting meal! No prep, super easy, freezes well and the kids love it!

We love it over rice, or served in a bowl with multi-grain chips, topped with reduced fat cheddar cheese or avocados. This makes a lot and it is even better the next day for lunch! A great freezer-friendly meal!

Easy for leftovers – try these Chicken Taco Chili Stuffed Peppers!
