Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chili

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

I know it's Spring and probably time to pack away Mrs. Potts along with all my favorite slow cooking soup recipes, but I'm just not quite ready yet! So, I'm clinging to every last easy meal I can eek out in the slow cooker, and absolutely loved how simple and delicious this meal was last night.

If you've got about 8 minutes in the morning to dump all the ingredients in your slow cooker, you've got one delicious dinner all done. (Have I mentioned lately how much I love that?) 😉 Here's the recipe so you can get a (healthy!) meal on the table at all with just a few minutes of effort.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chili


  • 16 oz can black beans
  • 16 oz can kidney beans
  • 2 8 oz cans tomato sauce
  • 10 oz frozen corn kernel
  • 2 14.5 oz cans Rotel
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • cheese (optional - for topping)
  • sour cream (optional - for topping)
  • tortilla chips (optional - for topping)


  1. Place everything except chicken, cheese and sour cream in slow cooker.
  2. Place chicken on top of the other ingredients in the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours.
  4. Once cooked, shred chicken and then stir back in - let cook another 10 minutes.
  5. Serve with cheese, chips and sour cream if desired (will count as extra Weight Watcher points) and enjoy!

  1. Beginner's question….. Is the chicken cooked or raw when you place it in the crockpot? Thanks.

  2. same??

    am clueless–??

  3. Delicious! Leftovers didn’t even make it to lunch the next day. I’ve got to try more of your recipes!

  4. what is Rotel?

    • Hi Jean! Look for it in the tomatoes section – it’s canned tomatoes with some extra seasonings & peppers. Hope that helps! (I think Red Gold makes a similar product, so look for it if you can’t Rotel.)

  5. Are you using 32 oz of raw beans or did you mean canned beans? If canned, beans, can they be rinsed to get rid of some of the salt??

  6. I bought raw beans and already thru everything in the crock pot…..will they cook or do i need to add water?? Help!

    • I’m so sorry Kim! They *may* cook – especially if your slow cooker cooks hot. Please let me know how it turns out (I hate that and apologize for not making it clear!)

  7. How many servings does this make?

  8. not the clearest recipe that I have ever read.Dry beans or canned,frozen corn doesn’t come in a can,large,med.,small onion.?I’ll make it but am not too thrilled about it.Thanks,Travis May

  9. Is this the old Weight Watchers Points or 5 Points Plus?

  10. We loved this chili; didn’t change a thing..just the right spice. Only wish I’d made a double batch! Thanks!
