I knew I couldn’t let my Chili 3000 spice sit in the cabinet for long. I had to make a batch of chili. And maybe with some upcoming football games you could use a new chili recipe too?
I made just a few changes to Skinnytaste’s Crockpot Chicken Taco Chili recipe, which calls for a taco seasoning packet. I tried to replace the packet with my own spices, but I didn’t use enough. The Chili 3000 was great, I just needed more. I updated the directions below with the amount I’ll use next time.
As you can see, this recipe yields a lot of chili! I had containers for lunch all week, plus extras for the freezer. This would be a great recipe to make for a crowd, and you could serve it with shredded cheese, sour cream, and sliced jalapenos or olives. It’s a great basic chili recipe no matter how you use it.

Add onions, beans, tomato sauce, tomatoes, water, and spices to the crockpot and stir well. Place raw chicken breasts on top. Cook on Low for 9-10 hours. Shred chicken, and stir into chili. Cook on High for 30 minutes.
