Tortilla Chili

4 split boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 8 oz. cans of Mexican style chopped tomatoes, undrained
2 cans of black beans, undrained
1 can tomato sauce
1 jar of medium or hot salsa
1 can chopped green chiles

Add all ingredients to a slow cooker.
Cook for 8 hours on low.
Take chicken breasts out when cooked through, and shred or cut into small pieces and then put back in slow cooker.
(I keep some chicken out for the picky kid who won't eat chili...I wrap it up in tortilla with some cheese.)
Spoon chili in bowl and top with cheese and chips and sour cream.
This recipe makes a lot...great for a party instead of traditional chili, or to freeze for later.

I love this recipe. I have been using it for about a year now. I follow it exactly. It has the perfect amount of spice and it just plain delicious. Thanks Sarah for posting my now favorite chili recipe.

Is that an 8 or 15 oz can of tomato sauce, or even larger? Thinking of this for dinner tomorrow...thanks for sharing!

Oh, I will be making this on Friday. I tried a similar recipe last summer but nobody at my house liked it, this looks more taco-like and might be more popular.

Regardless, I will like it and that's all that matters! : )

Sounds yummy! I like that there's a little variation for the kids who don't eat chili since there'd be at least one at my house, too. :)

Sounds delicious! I have to tell you I jusr got in the mail Mitten Strings for God and The Gift of an Ordinary Day. My husband and I are going to Hawaii for a week and these are my plane and beach reading materials. Can't wait to dig into them!

Laura said...

Yum! This looks delicious and most important - simple! I'll be trying it out in the next week or so.

Like the chilli in the slow cooker it says having the oven on in the heat. I am still dealing with picky eaters who only like plain food but now they are the grandchildren who I have a devil of a time coaxing so I agree its easier to put theirs to one side.
