Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

Crockpot chicken taco chiliI’m no chef, as it may be clear from my “cooking adventures.” I am trying to do better though and this Sunday may have been one of my best entrees yet.

My fiancé’s mom gave me her old crock pot probably a year ago.  I had used it once to melt cheese dip, but never for an actual crock pot recipe. Not sure why I hadn’t, but this weekend I gave it a shot with Skinnytaste’s Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili.

I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it was. I’m not a big fan of onions, tomatoes and a few other things, so here is how I made it. If you love onions, tomatoes and all those other things, take a look at the original recipe.

Rice and cheese are optional. I put “desired amount” for the rice, because you’ll basically pour some of the chili on top of the rice. So essentially it’s however much rice you’d like. Perhaps a half a cup cooked. I’ve yet to try quinoa, but I’m sure that would be a healthier alternative than white rice. If I try it, I’ll post results.
