Organic Taco Chicken Chili

Thank goodness I stumbled upon Gina’s blog or I wouldn’t have found this ah-mazing taco chicken chili recipe. Per usual I made some changes to make it my own. I literally turn this recipe into a taco bowl. It’s crunchy, creamy, salty, and savory. Can this chili get any better? I don’t think so!

Organic Taco Chicken Chili 

*Gina’s recipe has 203 calories for 1  1/4 cups. Depending on what toppings you choose it may be more.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 16-oz can black beans
  • 1 16-oz can kidney beans
  • 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • 10 oz package frozen corn kernels
  • 2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes, no salt added
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 24 oz (3-4) boneless skinless chicken breasts
**I try to eat as organically as possible especially if it comes out of a can. Everything I used in this recipe is organic except for the cheese… whoops.



In a medium skillet, saute the peppers and onions on medium to high heat until tender. Set aside.

Combine beans, corn, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in a slow cooker. Place chicken on top and cover. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours.

Half hour before serving, remove chicken and place in a shallow bowl.

Shred the chicken using two forks. One to hold the chicken in place and the other to do the shredding. Be careful, the chicken will be very hot! Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in.

Obviously you can’t have this chili without cheese. I used Trader Joe’s lite mexican blend

hello cheesy taco goodness…come to mama!

I ate this for lunch the past two days and it tastes even better the next day.
