One of my favorite things about winter get togethers is that there is usually a nice warm dish being served. This past New Year’s my sister came up with the brilliant idea to serve this dish that her and her roommates have made before: Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili (recipe from I am not a huge chili fan (because of the beans) but this was amazing! It was super easy to make, smelled amazing, and is the perfect meal to serve when having a bunch of people over when it is cold out.

Here is what you need to make this amazing winter party dish:
       - 1 onion, chopped 
       - 1 16oz can black beans 
       - 1 16oz can kidney beans 
       - 1 8oz can tomato sauce (can use up to a 16oz can if desired)
       - 10oz frozen or canned corn kernels
       - 28oz canned diced tomatoes (with or without chilies)
       - 1 packet taco seasoning 
       - 1 tbsp cumin 
       - 1 tbsp chili powder
       - 24oz (3) boneless skinless chicken breasts 
       - chili peppers, chopped (optional)
       - chopped fresh cilantro 

All you need to do to make this is combine the beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in a slow cooker. Next place the chicken on top and cover. You will want to cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. One half hour before your guests arrive, remove the chicken and shred it. Return the chicken to slow cooker and gently fold it into the chili. This recipe serves approximately 10 so be ready to get bowls, spoons and chili toppings out when you are ready to serve! 

Some great additions to have with this dish are fresh cilantro, cheese, and sour cream. You can eat this chili with or without a spoon if you have some Frito scoops on hand too. Besides New Years Eve this would be perfect to serve at an upcoming Super Bowl party (*hint hint*). What is your favorite winter party dish?

Hey Jamie,

I can't really handle spices at all and this wasn't that spicy. Just to be on the safe side though I would recommend not adding the chili peppers and you should be fine. Hope you enjoy it!!
