Chicken Taco Chili

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Looking for an easy dinner for tonight  {I am most nights.}  Look no further.  Throw this in your crockpot and forget about until dinner time.  It seems that we usually have multiple nights every week with activities that coincide with dinner time.  So I love things that can be done in the morning and are ready to eat when we are.

Chicken Taco Chili

Ingredients:

2 large chicken breasts
1 onion, chopped
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
2 10-oz cans diced tomatoes w/chilies
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
1 packet taco seasoning
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin

Directions:

Combine everything except chicken in a crockpot and mix well.  Place chicken in and push down into the bean mixture . Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours.  Just before serving shred the chicken and mix in. Serve.

*This is great just how it is, but my family likes to eat it on rice or cornbread.  And don’t forget toppings…cheese, cilantro and sour cream are just a few.
