foodie moment: chicken chili

Any moms out there looking for an EASY meal to make for dinner? (Let me hear ya holla).

Well, I thought I would share one my family’s favorites… Chicken Chili!

The first time I made it… well, it was actually a mistake. I didn’t have some of the right ingredients for another recipe I saw, so I just improvised. And my hubby loved it so much, I have had to figure out how I did it that first time.

I think I finally have it down now… so here it goes. And it’s super easy. You basically just throw all of the ingredients in a crock pot… and let it cook itself.

The chili is pretty mild.. and actually kind of sweet (which is great for my 2 little girls… because they eat it too). But you can always kick it up a notch by adding some chili pepper or getting the hotter version of the things below.

What you will need: (this will serve about 6 people)

A Crockpot

1 lb of Ground Chicken

16 oz can of Chili Beans in mild Chili sauce (I like the Bush brand)

1 Onion (chopped up)

1 Tomato (chopped up)

2-3 cloves of Garlic (minced)

2 cups of water

One package of mild Guacamole mix (I know, weird)

3/4 cup of Organic Ketchup

A bag of Cheddar or Mexican mix Shredded Cheese (for later)


Step 1- Cook the Ground Chicken in a pan on the stove

Step 2- Add the chicken and everything else listed above (but the cheese) to the crockpot. Stir for about a minute.

Step 3- Let it cook on Low for 2-4 hours.

At the end, I add in about half of the bag of cheese and stir it in to the chili. Then I use the rest of the bag for topping.

These is also great to eat with Tortilla Chips or Cornbread. Yum!

Enjoy! Let me know if you make it and how it works out!
