1 can chicken broth -- (46 ounce)
1 can tomato sauce -- (15 ounce)
1 can diced tomatoes -- (15 ounce)
3 cups shredded cooked chicken (I use rotisserie from the deli)
2 anaheim chilies -- diced
1 jalapeno pepper -- diced
1/2 cup diced onions
3 large tomatoes -- diced (3 to 4)
2 garlic cloves -- minced
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce (I use the the chipotle flavor)
1/2 teaspoon chipotle peppers (optional)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 avocado -- chopped
1/4 cup cilantro -- pulled from stem
1 lime -- cut into wedges
2 cups crushed tortilla chips

Throw everything except the garnishes in your crockpot and let it cook on high for 5-6 hours.

Dress with garnishes and give it a squeeze of lime (a must:-) and you're good to go!


If you are not using a crockpot, saute the garlic and onion in 2 tablespoons olive oil before adding the remaining ingredients.

Simmer for at least an hour so that the flavors mix together.
