Tex-Mex Chicken Chili — The Writer’s Slow Cooker Blog Hop

Tex-Mex Chicken Chili

Tex-Mex Chicken Chili

4 frozen chicken breasts
1 can Green Enchilada sauce
1 can Green Chiles
1 Large can Busch’s chili beans in Mild Sauce
1 large can Pinto Beans
1 packet taco seasoning
6 packets True Lime
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 onion, chopped*
1/2 teaspoon cilantro
and a couple of dashes of your favorite hot sauce

*Because I haven’t found a suitable substitute for onions yet, I’ve kept it in for everyone. I do not use it because of allergy issues.

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours. Shred chicken and mix back into chili. Serve. Sprinkle shredded Monterrey Jack cheese over the top and add some corn chips on the side.

Rebekah and Michelle came up with the idea to have a slow cooker blog hop. How nice! I need more of these recipes…would love it if someone cooked everything for me, but, alas, I can’t afford that. 🙂 So, I’m trying to get some more recipes to help with that time-suck. Working full-time, being a Mom and wife, and trying to write–well, I need more time! Who doesn’t, right? Slow cookers are a great way to give you back some of your day! So, here’s hoping I can get some good ones!

If you want to see more, here’s a list of the participants:

1. The Barenaked Critic
2. Rebekah Loper, Writer
3. The Merry Mennonite
4. Fairbetty’s World
5. Sue Ann Bowling
6. Thoughts of a Visual and Verbal Artist
7. Write Backwards – Jamie Dement (LadyJai)
8. Bonnie Rae, Just Words

If you want to share yours, just add it to the comments! I’d love more, seeing as I only have one…hopefully more after this blog hop!

    Omigod, chicken chili. I LOOOOOVE chicken chili, and this sounds divine. (Seriously, my grocery list for next week is going to be outrageous.)

  2. Ping from Angela Brown:

    The pic is inviting. Like it could warm a person from the inside out.

  3. Ping from merrymennonite:

    Oo this looks deeelicious! I’m thinking this would be an excellent Sunday lunch for a day when we have a fair amount of people underfoot at the old homestead.

  4. Ping from Rebekah Loper:

    I need someone to cook everything for me, too, but yeah . . . not happening. I’m lucky if I can get hubs to take care of his own lunch on Saturdays.

    This looks very yummy! 😀
