This is a very low fat, high fiber recipe. It is so easy to do and makes a lot! If you want to make it less spicy, leave out the red pepper flakes. For a vegetarian version, leave out the chicken breasts and only use half a can of beer.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, beer and died tomatoes in slow cooker. Add taco seasonings (oregano, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, cumin, salt, & black pepper) and stairwell. Lay chicken breasts on top and push down just enough to be covered by mixture. Set slow cooker for medium/low heat for 5 hours.
2
Take chicken breasts out and shred them with a fork. Put shredded chicken back into the slow cooker and stir. Cook for another 1 - 2 hours.
3
Serve with sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips. I like using the thin tortilla chips, but any will do.
