Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili {Sweet Pea's Kitchen}

There’s nothing like coming home from a long day at work and having dinner ready and waiting when you walk through the door. No I’m not talking about delivery pizza or fast food. I’m talking a simmered all day, warm, comforting, hearty bowl of soup! Especially when the temperatures barely creep out of the 40′s and mother nature has decided to drop several inches of rain on you. It’s days like this I just want to hide out under a blanket and forget that I actually have to be an adult. ;)

This soup was a huge hit with my family! Not only because it was super delicious, but it was so easy to make.  The slow cooker does all the work! All you have to do is toss it in and turn it on. After 6 hours of slow cooking, dinner is served!

    Love this twist on Chili and I also am a huge fan of coming home to a home cooked meal at night. Takes the pressure off that’s for sure!

    Great chili recipe, Christina. Like that you use 2 types of beans along with corn. This would be a great meal to come home to. :)

    What a great blog, just signed up for your daily updates! I am an avid blog reader for recipe ideas and am adding you to my list. I have everything in my pantry and fridge for this recipe except the jalapeno, but am going to substitute a chipotle. I make Southwestern chili all the time with black beans, corn, and 94/6 ground beef. Excited about using shredded chicken! Thanks!
