Crock-Pot Chicken Chili

I love recipes where you throw everything into the crock-pot and hours later it has turned into a delicious meal. Other than sauteing the onion and garlic and cooking the rice this recipe is super easy. I didn't even thaw my chicken. Just layered everything, stirred it occasionally till the chicken was tender.

This is a thick chili which could even be used in taco's or tortilla's, but I like it over rice with shredded cheese and sour cream.

1 can black beans rinsed

  1. Very nice, Pearl. Like you said, SIMPLE. I remember when I was working fulltime. I'd have dinner going all day in the crockpot... When I'd get home from work, the house would smell delicious!!!! I love crockpots!
