Crockpot Southwestern Chicken Chili

It's a's a's Super Ryder!

Ryder's ready to save the day!

I'm sorry I had to get that out of my system. He is just too cute for words and I had to share it with the world! I also have to share with the world this good mouth watering recipe. Like any other recipe I found this one while on Pinterest. I swear, this site is an unhealthy obsession.

This chili is healthy and packed with protein from the beans and chicken! It also has a slight kick to it which I absolutely love. You can easily make this completely vegetarian by subbing the chicken for other types of beans. The possibilities are endless!

Hearty. Spicy. Delicious.

Crockpot Southwestern Chicken Chili
3 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can diced fire roasted tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 can diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings
1 14.5 oz can no salt added corn, undrained
1 16 oz jar salsa (I used medium)
1 14.5 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 14.5 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 green pepper, chopped
1 small white onion, chopped
1 bunch of celery, chopped
1 package reduced sodium taco seasoning
1 package ranch seasoning

The ingredients!

-Line crockpot with slow cooker liners. Mist with cooking spray.
-Place chicken in the pot followed by the celery, green pepper, and onion.
-Sprinkle the ranch and taco packets on top.
-Pour tomatoes, corn, and beans over.
-Cook on low for 5 hours.
-Shred chicken and put back in crockpot giving it a quick stir to combine.
-Cover and cook 30 minutes longer.
-Ladle chili into your favorite bowl, sprinkle with hot sauce, and enjoy!

This recipe is definitely a keeper!

This chili is almost indescribable if you ask me. It's flavor is a fantastic combination of a taco and chili. If you prefer foods without a kick, use mild salsa and nix the hot sauce at the end!

Question of the Day

Do you go shopping on Black Friday?

I've gone pretty consecutively in the past. But this year I won't be attending in the madness due to work. I also believe that you can get just as good of deals going other days and not having to risk your life getting tampled upon wait in long lines for hours!

I'd rather be munching on this than waiting in line!
