Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Chilli

It seems like all of the recipes that I’ve bookmarked lately have been found via Pinterest. It’s just such a great site, especially for someone as visual as I am.

My original plan for this was to have it on Monday for dinner. I had thrown the ingredients together on Sunday night, so that all I’d have to do was add the meat Monday morning and turn the slow cooker on. I completely forgot to do that, which left us without dinner on Monday night. Oops. I made sure not to make the same mistake on Tuesday. Stephen thought this chilli was just alright, while I loved it. He thinks it’s too similar to another chilli that I make, and he doesn’t find it quite thick enough. I however, don’t think it’s as similar as the other chilli that I make, and while I prefer a thick chilli, I still find this one to be delicious. I think if I were to make it again, I’d buy some tortilla chips to eat with it.
(I’ll be updating this post later on today with a picture of the chilli.)
