Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili // This chicken version of Taco Soup is SO good! And I love that you can just throw all the ingredients in the crock pot and forget it! | Tried and TastyEssentially, this is the chicken version of taco soup. Brilliant! For a while there Steve and I were having taco soup ALL the time and I got burnt out. If only I had known back then about this recipe I could have switched things up. As with all crock pot meals, I love just throwing everything in the crock pot and forgetting about it. I put this together before work and when I got home for lunch the place smelled wonderful and it was ready to be devoured. We added shredded cheese and sour cream. The only thing we were missing were the chips! On the source site she used a bed of rice on the bottom for hers and I think I will try that next time.

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
I didn't have an onion (crazy I know!) so I just used minced onion. Enough that I felt good about it. I didn't have frozen corn so I just used two regular sized cans. My diced tomatoes didn't have chilies and that was fine. I only used a half tbsp of chili powder, I'm not a spicy person. I didn't have tomato sauce so I substituted with enchilada sauce and it worked just perfectly!

    My family loves this recipe!! I use three cans of Hanover chili beans- one kidney, one black and one white. We also add way more corn than it calls for because my son says there’s never enough corn.😂 I don’t use cumin(just don’t care for it) and I’ve used frozen diced onion, fresh or dried minced…whatever I had on hand.😉💙😋

    The best part of this whole recipe is your “My 2 Cents” at the bottom. Cracked me up! That’s exactly how I cook, too. I love how you make no apologies even though you substituted/changed up FIVE of the ingredients. Great job. Your recipe is on my list for this week’s meals. Thanks!

      Ha! That’s funny! Looking back now, it may have been easier to list the things I DIDN’T change (hee hee)! Let me know what you think when you make it this week (and what changes you make to it ;) )

    I made this dish tonight. As of now it is still simmering in the pot; however, I had to sneak a bite and it is tasty. I also sliced beef smoked sausages, chopped celery, and frozen fresh corn off the cob. Looking forward to tomorrow’s dinner. An even harder decision is wheter to top the meal off with tostitos chips, crackers, grilled cheese sandwich, or corn bread. Gucamolle, sour cream, and cheese..uhhh, hmm…
