Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Layer chicken, great Northern beans, and corn into a slow cooker.

    Advertisement
  • Mix chicken broth, chicken soup, green chile peppers, and taco seasoning together in a bowl; pour over chicken mixture.

  • Cover and cook on Low until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 8 to 10 hours. Stir in sour cream and pepper Jack cheese; cover and cook until cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I usually cook the chicken first and then just heat it up on Low in the slow cooker for 3 to 4 hours. You can also cook it on the stove to get it done quicker.

This is one of the few recipes I make regularly that everyone in my family gets excited about. I make it exactly as directed. As other reviewers have noted, the recipe doesn’t specify what to do with the chicken. It works well to cut it into small cubes and throw it in the crockpot raw, along with the other ingredients. Make sure you drain the corn and the beans. Then cook everything in the crockpot on low for about 6 hours. There are several good cornbread recipes in this site that go well with it. Read More

Despite using a Chipotle Taco Seasoning packet and hot green chiles plus onion celery and garlic this was just blah-bland.. I re-seasoned with cumin more garlic and added chili powder. Much improved. Read More

I made this on the stove top using ground chicken. It was phenomenal! I love the taco seasoning as opposed to chili seasoning. I can't wait to serve it to friends and family. Read More

Yummy!! Definitely a keeper. The recipe didn't specify what to do with the chicken- dice it or leave it whole and then shred it after cooking all day. I diced it but I think next time I might leave it whole and then shred once cooked through. My husband says he would have liked a little more heat but that's easy to remedy. Read More

I used ground turkey browned with green chilis, onions, and lots of garlic instead of chicken. Served it with lime flavored tortilla chips. I am a beginning cook and this was so easy and tasty! Everyone had seconds and wanted leftovers the next day. Read More

Followed the recipe exactly. By 10 hours, the chicken Shred so easy with a fork. Didn’t precook the chicken. Used hot Chile peppers and hot taco seasoning. Could have used a bit more heat. Also I topped this with tortilla chips crushed. Delicious. Will make again! Read More

I was not sure if the beans and corn were to be drained or not, so I drained the corn, but not the beans. I did put the chicken breasts in whole and when it was done I pulled them out and shredded them. I got rave reviews at the chili cook off, so this is a keeper. Next time I will garnish with green onions and maybe add more chili's or a spicier taco season for a little more bite. Over all a great and easy recipe. Read More

I made subs using Tony Cacheres salt free spice *yummy* (I use all salt-free spices) and a dash of cumin. I diced my chicken and added *hold on to your cooking hats* yellow squash in lieu of corn, it was delish! Better for all to digest too as we are of the Senior Persuasion *smiling sweetly*. Next time, I will use more greens too ;-) - perhaps egg plant too? Read More

It was very good, and much easier to make than my usual chicken chili recipe which involves cutting up lots of onions and tends to be too thing. The recipe doesn't mention dicing the chicken breasts, but that seemed to match the picture, so that's what I did. Read More
