Slow Cooker Chicken Chili
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar salsa (we use medium spiciness)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato sauce
1 can chicken broth
1 red or green pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 clove garlic, diced
2 cans small white beans (canellini)
1 cup corn (frozed, canned or fresh)
2 tsp cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp black pepper
Salt (to taste)
Into the crockpot place all ingredients except beans and corn (chicken can still be frozen). Cook on low approximately 2-3 hours, until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from crockpot and shred using two forks. Return chicken to pot. Continue cooking another hour.
Add drained beans - continue cooking on low for another 1-2 hours. Add corn - let heat through. Serve with warm tortillas or over rice or orzo with cheese and sour cream.
I made up this recipe one day and it became one of our favorites - it is so easy, healthy and yummy. Adjust the flavors according to your taste - make it spicier, more cumin, add garlic or onion powder, etc. It's impossible to mess it up. Every time I make it I have to bring a container to my parents because they love it too.
If there's leftovers, I will add more chicken broth and a small pasta (we like ditalini), and it becomes a Mexican Chicken Soup
