Crock-Pot® Chicken Chili

Recipe by  

"Made a chicken chili recipe, and it was bland. So I took the ingredients and added my own flair. My family loves it when it gets cold out, because they know this will be on the menu. It's very flavorful. Serve with tortilla chips and sliced avocado for something different. Serve with sour cream and cheese."

Fabulous! Spicy, filling and healthy...not to mention easy! Kids had a hard time with the spice, but after they added some cheese and crushed chips they were good to go. I used Rotel Mild tomatoes with chilis.

easy but needs something

One change - I've made this a couple of times and at the end I add either some tortilla chips, about a hand-full, or some cornmeal. It helps thicken it up a bit. Overall, a really good recipe. My husband actually asks for it - very rare for a guy whose stock answer to the question "What do you want for dinner tonight?" is "I don't know..." I get asked to make this about once a week and I don't mind at all because this recipe is fantastic. It's also inexpensive, especially if you start with dried beans, use a bullion cube instead of canned broth, etc.

Very yummy! I didn't change a thing and everyone loved it.

I needed something quick to throw in the crockpot and come upon this recipe. I had everything but the green salsa, so I improvised with what I did have and threw in a can of ranch style beans with jalapenos. I upped the oregano to 3/4, added a packet of dry ranch, and added some garlic for flavor. Put it on high for 4 hrs, and came home to deliciousness! Served with shredded sharp cheddar, sour cream, and warm flour tortillas. It was awesome! Would recommend to anyone. I'm sure if mine was thrown together and improvised that the original version with green salsa is even more delicious.

This is so good I make it all the time so easy and really good! I like to add a can of black beans to the recipe. I serve with sour cream and grated cheddar cheese!

OMG! This is absolutely delish but I did make some changes. I used one can of garbanzos along with one can of the white beans. In addition, added 2 cloves of minced garlic and doubled up on the cumin because I wanted to actually taste that smokey essence. To thicken it up a bit at the end and to add more of the salt factor I added some Queso Quesadilla. It adds an amazing background flavor along with a little creaminess. Served with sliced avocados and corn bread. Serious comfort food.
