How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken Chili


  1. Put the chicken in the slow cooker. Add 3 tablespoons of the chili powder and all the rest of the ingredients, except for the beer. Stir everything together, cover, and cook on LOW 6-8 hours.
  2. Just before serving, stir in the remaining 2 teaspoons chili powder, the beer, and season with more salt and pepper, if desired. Divide the chili among warm bowls. Serve with toppings of your choice.
  3. *TIP* - Stirring the 2 teaspoons of chili powder in right before serving brightens the flavor of the chili.
