Weight-Watchers Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili

One of my message boards has been talking about this Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili (from Gina's WW Recipes - full of awesome stuff!) and I was really excited to try it out.

I've said this a thousand times, but there is nothing like dumping stuff into the crockpot and coming back to it hours later and poof- there's dinner. Whether you're working crazy hours, or dealing with nutty kids, or really just don't feel like cooking, this is an awesome meal for you.

And I would NEVER have guessed it was so figure-friendly if I didn't know it specifically came from a WW blog. It was just SO AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS - I couldn't figure out how it could be good for you.

Make this tonight - you will not be sorry.

  • 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 0z. (3) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • chili peppers, chopped (optional)
  • 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 fresh cilantro. Also try it with low fat cheese and sour cream (extra points).


  1. Mmm, I like this because you don't have to brown any meat AND it's healthy!

  2. Sounds great for these chilly days we've been having here in Boston.

  3. I made this today and it was so good! I didn't have taco seasoning so I raided the spice rack and did some quick substitutions and it was yummy.

  4. I made this last night and it was excellent! Thank you for posting!

  5. Do the beans need to be drained or do they go in the crock pot without draining?
