This is my adaptation of a recipe I found when I was searching for something low-fat with high protein and I have substituted ingredients to make it more healthy. I like to have it over shredded iceberg lettuce (for me) and with or over cornbread for my family.

How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine ingredients in list up to the chicken in slow cooker. Stir until well combined. You do not need to defrost the corn.
  2. Place chicken breasts over top. Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.
  3. Shred the chicken breasts and return to the pot.
  4. I like to serve my portion over shredded iceberg lettuce, with green & red onion, low-fat Mexican cheese blend, and no- or low-fat sour cream. It is the best things from a taco salad and more healthy. My family likes to have it over cornbread in their bowl, or with cornbread on the side. Top with the fresh cilantro, and other toppings of choice.
