You Gotta Try This Awesome Tasting And Very Healthy Chicken Taco Chili

Hello everyone I hope your all having a great and very healthy week taking care of your body because it's the only one you have!!!  I came across an excellent recipe for Chicken Taco Chili that not only tastes great but is very healthy and filling as well.  I've had it at home over a cup of rice and also at work by itself so I thought I would share this great recipe with everyone... I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I do ;)

Ingredients:

1 onion,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 w/chilies

1 packet taco seasoning

1 tbsp cumin

1 tbsp chili powder

24 oz (3-4) boneless skinless chicken breasts

chili peppers, chopped (optional)

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro


Combine beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, 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 shred.  Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in.  Top with cilantro.  Also try it with low fat cheese and sour cream which would be extra weight watcher points for those of you on weight watchers.
