This is an Ultra-easy Slow Cooker Chicken Chili you will ever make. Dump in the ingredients and let the slow cooker do the rest for you.
This is one of the easiest slow cooker chicken chili recipes you ever will make in your life. Sounds exaggerated? I know, but I’m very serious! This recipe is a dump-everything-in-there-and-forget-about-it recipe. You don’t need any extra steps such as sauteé the chicken or something else. The only thing you have to do is to add all the ingredients in the slow cooker, cook for 3 hours on high, and break apart the chicken at the end of the cooking time.
If you prefer to cook on low, you can do that too. You throw all of the ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning before you leave for work and when you come back home, dinner will be ready. Actually, you will not only have dinner but lunch through the week with the leftovers. This slow cooker chicken chili is just as flavorful the next day too. You can store it in small Tupperware to bring to work and warm it up in a microwave. The chili is good for up to 5 days in the fridge.
Before you jump to the recipe, I just want to give you one extra tip. For this recipe, I used a bottle of salsa I bought at my local grocery store and it is already very spicy. That’s why I didn’t add lots of spices to this recipe. But of course, if you like spicy food, you can add more spices according to your taste.
This hearty Slow Cooker Chicken Chili is definitely the best meal choice for this time of the year. This is ultra flavorful, warm, comforting, spicy, and healthy. The chicken is also juicy. Hope you give this recipe a try and enjoy it!
