Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili

I have finally joined Pinterest and have had some time the last few days to try it out and I love it! I found this great recipe which can be found on the Photo a Day blog. This is an easy recipe that you can throw in the crockpot before work and have it be ready when you get home.

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)

Combine beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder, chili peppers 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 some low fat shredded mexican cheese and serve.

This was such an easy and delicious recipe that was great as leftovers. I think it may have even tasted better the second day.

Question: Have you tried out Pinterest, if so what are your thoughts on it?
